Selecting the right wine
We can supply you with any wine from our range for your event and can suggest wines suitable for most budgets. However, for larger numbers you need to cater for a wide variety of tastes, and a very expensive wine or champagne will most likely be wasted on many of your guests, so here’s a few things to consider to help you with your decision.
The Time of Year
Is your event in the middle of summer or in the dead of winter? The season can definitely make a big difference as to which wine you decide to serve them. Are you trying to warm them up or keep them refreshed?
In the colder months, red wines may be more popular than whites and vice versa in the warmer part of the year – maybe even consider a dry rose.
We at Wine 2 Dine 4, are great advocates of choosing wine which compliments the food and have a comprehensive wine and food matching section on this website – click on the following link to find out more:
What’s Your Budget?
I began this section by saying that really expensive wines will very often be wasted on most of your guests, so it’s good to bear that in mind when choosing your wines. Having said that wines do not have to break the bank to be regarded as ‘very good’ and we at Wine 2 Dine 4 have an excellent range of mid-priced wines which would undoubtedly fit the bit for most tastes.
If you need assistance selecting the wine, please contact email@example.com and we’ll be delighted to help.
Champagne or Sparkling Wine
If your event is a special celebration then it probably wouldn’t be complete without a bit of bubbly. We generally suggest one of our house Champagnes for large events as they offer such good value. However, we can supply alternative sparkling wines to suit your budget.
How much wine will you need?
As ever with large events, some guests will drink less than others, but as a general rule of thumb allow for about half a bottle per person. (There are approx 6 glasses per bottle).
It’s also a good idea to consider what time of day you’re having your dinner. People often drink a little less at an afternoon event than at an evening one.
And Finally – Corkage!
If you’re holding your event at a hotel, they will undoubtedly expect to charge you a corkage fee. The rationale for this is that if they had sold you their own wine and champagne, they would have made a significant mark up – very often 100% or more. A corkage charge is by way of compensation for this.
It’s a good idea to negotiate the corkage rate before making the booking as the hotel manager is likely to be more flexible with his rates if the booking depends on it.
Even allowing for corkage, supplying your own wines or champagne will still usually cost less than using those supplied by the venue.
