Congratulations on your engagement!

We know how much time and planning goes into preparing for a wedding.
We can help alleviate some of the stress by helping you choose and make wines to please everyone on your special day.

How Long Before The Wedding Should We Make The Wine?

Your wine will be quite enjoyable on the day it's bottled, however we recommend you leave whites about 2 to 3 months and reds around 4 months before serving them at your wedding. Tell us the date of your wedding and we will make sure you have a wine making appointment far enough in advance to make the best tasting wine.

Serving Guidelines

The amount of wine you require will of course depend on the size of your wedding. Refer to our serving guidelines to calculate how much wine you will need to keep the celebration going. Generally, we recommend one bottle per 3 guests of drinking age.

How much wine to make will depend on various factors including the number of guests, whether it's a wine-drinking crowd, the format of the reception, the time of year, the time of day, and the menu. It is better to have a little more wine than not quite enough.

The standard 750ml wine bottle holds 25 ounces so count on five five ounce servings of wine from each bottle.

Follow these steps to estimate your needs:

  • Calculate how many people will be drinking at the event.
  • Multiply this number by four (to give you the maximum number of standard drinks per person you will need).
  • Divide number of standard drinks by five per bottle
  • Divide number of bottles by 30 to determine the number of batches and then round up

For example:

  • 100 wine drinking guests attending
  • 100 x 4 standard drinks = 400 standard drinks
  • 400 / 5 (5 glasses per 750ml bottle) = 80 bottles of wine
  • 80/30 750ml bottles per batch = 2.67 or 3 batches of wine will be needed

Therefore, you could make one batch of red wine, one batch of white wine, and one batch of rosé wine.
**If there will also be a bar available in addition to the wine, two batches would be quite sufficient for the above scenario.

Wine Recommendations

Choosing a wine that will complement your meal and be enjoyed by you and your guests can be intimidating, especially if you don't know much about wine. We will help you choose the wine that is just right for you, your venue and your guests. A selection of our most popular Wedding Wine Packages are below. We can create a cost effective package with any wine on our wine, as well.

White Wines
For white wines we recommend that once you bottle your wine, you further age it in the bottle for another 2 to 3 months before serving it at your wedding.

For example if your wedding is on July 1st you will want to go into the store to make your wine by mid February. You could then bottle it at the end of March and have 3 months for your wine to mature in the bottle, making it just perfect on your wedding day.

Red Wines
Red wines require a little be more time to bottle age; however, the resulting wine will show great depth of flavour. You will want to bottle age red wine from an ultra premium kit for a minimum of 4 months before serving.

For example, if your wedding is on July 1st, the latest you will want to go into the store to make your wine is early January. You could then bottle it by mid February and have 4 months for it to bottle age.

The earlier you make your wine the more time it will have allowing the flavours to fully develop, so the wait will definitely be worth it!
