budget wine for a summer wedding

andytee | Feb 23, 2007 08:10 PM

im lucky enough to be getting married to the love of my life next july in an outdoor ceremony in vermont. were trying not to break the bank, but like good wine, so im looking for recommendations of good bottles at affordable prices. were looking for a red and a white, under $10/ea for sure, and if possible in the $5-7 range. the meal will be buffet style - garlic-y kebabs of lamb and chicken, lots of summer produce (tomatoes, grilled corn), some middle eastern stuff (hummus, baba ghanoush), and pie for desert. we will likely not serve champagne, neither of us like it much.

for what we want to pay, i'm guessing spain is a good bet and thinking rioja/temperanillo and albarino, but i'm very open to other ideas. any good pairings, budget bottles, or tips on getting cheap wine would be more than appreciated.
