From the Experts.......Fabulous Wine!

We all love fabulous wine, but picking the perfect wine for your wedding can be daunting.  From large established wineries to small boutique labels, the choices seem to be endless.  For a little educated guidance, we went to one of our favorite people, Michael Ochsner.  Michael is owner, managing partner and level II sommelier at Plonk, a Bozeman restaurant and bar celebrated for its exquisite cuisine and exceptional wine selection presented in an “environment designed to engage the senses in an uncompromised celebration of the beauty of life”.

Michael’s recommendations:

Masfi Brut Rose, Cava, Spain NV"Seductively colored and consistent to the palate, this wines represents all that can be achieved with sparkling Cavas in presentation and value."   $10.25

Perrier Jouet Brut, Champagne, France NV"Of all the big house Champagnes this is hands down my favorite. Clean, sexy and elegant, I could celebrate with this wine all night!!"   $49.00

L'Aventure Rose, Paso Robles, California 2010"I was skeptical of this wine at first but turned upside down on the first taste. This rose is bursting with flavor while not being weighty or overwhelming. Have your cake and eat it too with this one."   $22.50

Long Shadow's "Poet's Leap" Riesling, Columbia Valley, Washington 2010"Amazing fruit, pears, nectarines, peaches, breakfast wine of the year."   $17.50

Olivier LaFlaive 'Les Setilles' Bourgogne Blanc, Chardonnay, Burgundy, France 2010
"For your more serious wine drinkers, this wine will pair beautifully with a very wide spectrum of foods. Though I would consider it quite a dry white, the Les Setilles wins you from the start with a slightly creamy texture and beautiful weight."   $19.00

Sokol Blosser 'Meditrina' Pinot Noir Blend, Oregon NV"This is one of the few reds that is fitting for me on a beautiful summer day."   $17.00

Zenato Ripassa, Veneto, Italy 2009"Full bodied and velvety on the palate, this wine seems to find every corner of your mouth."    $28.00

Honeymoon Wine:
Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Pinot Noir, Somoma, California 2008"Silky, seductive, eloquent, this is the definition of a lover's wine."   $96
