ThirstyNest is the first ever wine and spirits wedding registry for the modern couple and they launched earlier this year!  It’s an entirely new way to select gifts and stock the newlywed home bar for the couple who doesn’t need more crock pots.

So many couples now live together before they get married or are getting married well into adulthood and don’t need traditional registry gifts like coffee makers and vases, etc.  The wedding market has drastically shifted and the average couple in 2017 is getting married later in life, staying in cities longer and make up the largest consuming wine generation in history.

ThirstyNest provides couples with the opportunity to register for everything from the finest wines to the very best aged whiskies like the Yamazaki 12 Year Old Single Malt; which is one of my husband’s faves.  ThirtstyNest even has some amazing accessories that would coordinate beautifully in your home bar and they even sell bar carts!!

Jacqueline Strum is the Founder and CEO of ThirsyNest.  She got the idea to launch ThirstyNest after she was putting together her own registry last year. We picked her brain about her suggestions for 7 wines to serve at a late summer wedding and she personally curated 7 of her favorites!  All of these selections are available to snag on your very own ThirstNest registry.  Check them out below and get started on your registry {HERE}!


Rotari Trento NV Brut Rose – A little pretty in pink bubbly never hurt nobody. There are few things more refreshing than an icy glass of this sparkling rosé that will pair with almost every passed hors d’oeuvre you throw at it.

LaLuca Prosecco DOC – Something bubbly only on the days that end in y seems plausible with this affordable, high quality, Prosecco. It doesn’t hurt that it comes in a beautiful sleek package. Beauty and brains? Sign us up!


Empire Estate 2015 Dry Riesling Finger Lakes –  Riesling tends to get a bad rap as too sweet, but the new-age of dry Rieslings are high in acidity to make them refresh with the best of them. It will make for a more interesting answer for the inevitable – “red or white” – question.

Domaine Durand 2015 Reserve Sancerre – There are few things more refreshing than an ice cold Sauvignon Blanc and this one comes with a lovely French accent. The bright acidity will keep everyone on their toes for dancing all night long.


Seaglass 2015 Rose Monterey County – From Seaglass, producers of one of the best value Pinot Noirs in the market, comes this refreshing, lively rose. Its screw cap makes it an easy open and al fresco wedding favorite.

Belle Glos Oeil de Perdrix Sonoma – Darker rosés are all the rage right now and since you likely won’t serve much red in late Summer this serves as a nice full bodied option. They bring with them the same drinkable profile of an icy rosé with a bigger mouthfeel and gorgeous jewel tone.


I Quercioli Lambrusco Dolce NV Reggiano – Still red wine in late Summer typically goes unopened. You may still need something with a little richness and Lambrusco perfectly fits the bill served chilled alongside your starchy sides and heavier dishes.
