    I think Menage a Trois is reasonably priced and of good quality. The original is a merlot, but they have other reds and also whites. What price range arr you thinking?

    Hi Sammy! Thank you for reaching out. We’re trying to stay at around $10-12 pp. We may have about 15-30 couples staying in our selected hotels.

    Love Zonin Prosecco from Trader Joe’s and it’s only $7! At grocery stores it can run $10-$15 so it doesn’t seem like a cheap wine.

    You’re welcome! My hubby & I both love it. And while I like dry (brut) bubbly, my sister-in-law only likes sweet wine and because of the fruity notes likes it too. So I think it’ll be good for a range of palettes.

    Def go to Trader Joe's. Their 6 dollar prosecco is equivalent to 20 dollar bottles at other stores. I love their rose's too.

    If indecisive maybe do small bottles of wines, I think Barefoot, Cupcake, Sutter Home, all make small mini bottles. I think Barefoot and Sutter Home are like $7 for a 4 pack of mini bottles. Maybe you could mix and match 4 packs or even just give two little bottles if trying to save money.


    Also check if the stores around you offered a discount if you buy bulk wine, I think here in Ohio, Giant Eagle gives you a discount if your buy 6 or 12 bottles of wine.

    Thank you so VERY much. My fiancé says I’m to inquire and get 8 suggestions then we’ll go and try them. We have time our wedding is in October. I’d prefer to start buying at least 3 bottles a month to not break the bank at once . So I thank you all and appreciate ALL suggestions.

    Do you know if there are any restrictions from the hotel on wine in the bags? When I first read this I thought - great idea!, but then wondered if the hotel would have some problem since they can't /aren't legally allowed to card people or whatever.


    Maybe search around if people have done this successfully? (If not maybe you or your family could hand out some bottles?)

    Good morning I’ve already checked with the three hotels we have courtesy holds with . they’re all good with me putting wines in the gift bags. I made sure I took care of that first before I started looking into this. thank you for the suggestion

    If you like a red wine, 19 Crimes is always a safe bet! I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like it yet and they always have $3 off coupons on the bottles making them under 10 bucks!

    We like Apothic Brand, Moiselle Moscato, and Runiy. Barefoot and Cupcake wines are good as well.

    Stella Rosa - I have literally never met a person who didn't like it- ever. Even red drinkers, white - it doesn't matter. It's so good! You can find it anywhere.

    Do and see if they’ll also put out a welcome sign for check in.

    I work at Trader Joe’s, and I always recommend a red blend if you’re going with a red. It’s usually good for all tastes, and I really like our Wish Flower. The bottle is really simple and pretty Smiley smile. They also offer a white Wish Flower, too. Check out Trader Joe’s, ask a Crew member for recommendations, and do some tastings at home. You’ll want to make sure you place a special order with tour local store so they can make sure to have it in stock when you want it!
