Additional Information

If you choose to bring your own wine for your event, your venue will apply a corkage fee to any bottle opened by them. This fee varies from venue to venue. €8 - €18 per bottle of wine and €12 - €30 per bottle of bubbly could be considered a 'ballpark' average.

Even with a corkage fee added on to the cost of your wine, bringing your own still ends up cheaper. Let's look at the maths; say you have 100 guests coming to your event and have allocated a half bottle to each person. You'll need 50 bottles in total.

50 bottles of house wine @ €30 per bottle = €1500 total

50 bottles of off licence wine @ €9.99 per bottle = €499.50

Add in corkage @ €10 per bottle = €999.50 total

Your savings? €500.50!

If you're buying wine for a big event, we offer a bulk discount. The exact amount depends on how many bottles you buy, so it's best to get in touch with us before purchasing. Plus, we can help you find the perfect wine to match your menu. We’ll even deliver it to your wedding venue or your home at no extra cost.

If you don't use all the wine you buy, we'll take back up to 50% of any unopened bottles and refund you fully for them.

As well as our bulk discount and refund policy, your venue will likely be willing to negotiate on the cost of corkage. So don't be afraid to try out your haggling skills for even more savings.

As a rule of thumb, allow half a bottle of wine per guest. This is enough for two glasses + a top up per person. For champagne or sparkling wine, you'll get 8 glasses per bottle. On average a large event will have more white wine drinkers than red wine drinkers. 60:40 white to red is a safe ratio to work with.

It's always better to have too much rather than too little, so add a few 'buffer bottles' onto how much you think you'll need. Remember we'll refund you for some of the bottles you don't open (or you can keep them for post-wedding celebrations).

We know a thing or two about crowd-pleasing wines, so we've put together a recommended wine list below. If you'd like to try before you buy, add your chosen bottles to your cart and at checkout, write 'tasting bottles for wedding' in the order notes. Be sure to let us know your wedding date too, so we can put plenty of bottles aside for your big day.

If you’re looking for advice on food pairings, we can advise you on that too. Don’t hesitate to give us a call to discuss which wines will work best with your menu.

Happy tasting!
