Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming nuptials! We know you want to make your wedding as special as possible. Selecting hand-crafted artisan wine for your guests is a delightful way to make your big day that much more memorable—especially when you adorn every wine bottle with your own personal label and serve it at your reception. Your craft wine is perfect for putting out on the dining tables and as a gift for your guests to take-home as a remembrance of your day.
Weddings are an expensive business and according to a 2017 study, a resounding 85% of Canadians said that wedding spending is getting out of control. When planning a wedding every couple finds their own unique ways to make their day both personal and special. Crafting your own wedding wine adds a personal touch that guests will remember and appreciate, but it is also a great way to allow for savings to your budget without compromising on quality. Whether it is wine to serve at your wedding, for the bridal shower or to be given away as wedding favours—hand-crafted artisan wine is a great choice for your wedding!
The other great thing about crafting your wedding wine is that it gets the celebrations going well before your big day. Making wedding wine is a fun DIY project you will want to do together, or even with your whole wedding party. Making great wine is also very easy—especially when crafted at Brewery Lane where our expert staff will assist you in ensuring the perfect wine every time!
Wine is an essential component of your reception dinner* however there are many other occasions where your crafted wine can be enjoyed.
*If you are renting a facility for your reception you should check to see if you are permitted to supply your own wine. Some venues will not permit it.
Your wine will be enjoyable on the day it’s bottled; however we recommend aging the wines before serving them:
Whites: Age two to three months
Reds: Age four months
Our expert guide will give you excellent advice on the most popular wine styles—not only to please your guests’ palates, but also to pair with your wedding dinner. They will also assist you in confirming how many bottles you will need for the celebration. And for an extra special touch, they will help you design personalized bottle labels, or you can print them yourself.
White: Pinot Grigio
Red: Cabernet Sauvignon
The amount of wine needed will depend on the size of your wedding. Follow these steps to estimate your needs:
Here's an example for 100 guests:
100 wine drinking guests attending
100 x 4 standard drinks = 400
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.
