My fiancee and I are getting married this summer in a museum that unfortunately prohibits us from serving red wine because they're worried about people spilling it and staining the facility or the art. I rarely drink white wine, and since the menu choices are salmon or prime rib, I'm sure a good number of people are going to be disappointed to not have a choice of red (myself included!).
I could really use some recommendations on white wines that are the closest thing to red, especially some that could stand up to a slab of prime rib. I tried a nice bottle of Zaca Mesa Roussanne served at room temperature a few months ago that is the closest thing to red I've ever had in a white, but at around $25 a bottle, it will set me back quite a bit to serve it to a wedding of 150 or so people. We are going to buy all the wine ourselves for the caterer, so we have flexibility.
Any thoughts or help is very much appreciated.
