A friend of mine from grad school and I were recently discussing her vision for her fall 2011 Chicago nuptials. She told me about the perfect venue she’d found, which she described as beautiful and full of “rustic romance.” I too, adore weddings with rustic elegance, which got me thinking about how to further incoporate this idea into a wedding theme.
When I recently came across a great way to include wine into this theme, via my favorite wine brand, Red Truck (see related post over at my other blog, The Lovely Nester), I knew I just had to share it with the masses.
Red truck winery sells barrels of their most popular wines, which hold appoximately 4 bottles of wine. The wooden keg is so charming, that I knew it would make a fabulous centerpiece on each reception table.
Another reason to buy Red Truck wine is its affordability, which is important to any budget-minded bride, as well all know that alcohol costs can eat a large chunk of your funds. Most of their bottles cost around $10, and when you buy a barrel, the price drops to about $7. How great would it be to get one barrel of white and one barrel of red for each table, and allow guests to serve themselves from the spout?
One of the best reasons, though, is that Red Truck strives to be an environmentally friendly company. All of their wines are certified vegan, meaning that no animal products are used during the filtration process (yes, that really happens!). Furthermore, they recently launched a new line of exclusive organic wines, called Green Truck.
