Wedding Concierge Service
Our wedding concierge service is designed to help you select the right wines for your day – from reception bubbly to tailored wines for each course of your meal – at the right budget.
No doubt you’ll want to taste your wedding wine before placing an order - hey, it's one of the good parts of the preparation! For wedding wines, we'll deliver your samples free of charge (often within 24 hours) so you can taste the wine in the comfort of your own home to ensure that they are the ones for you. All that we ask is that you cover the price of the bottles.
We will deliver to your reception location speedily and free of charge anywhere in Ireland, usually the day before the big day to ensure it arrives in good time.
Sale or return
We will guide you on quantities, but if you still want to play it on the safe side, anything you don’t drink can be returned to us for a full refund. All that we ask is the wine is unopened and still in a sellable condition.
See our sale or return service for more details.
The personal touch
We are here to help. Our friendly, dedicated and experienced staff can suggest wines to suit your menu (or even better, food to suit your favourite wines!), all geared to your own preferences and budget.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch.
How much you will need: When providing wine throughout a meal, the rule of thumb is around half a bottle per person. This may sound generous, but it does mean that you’re unlikely to run out. Expect to get 5 glasses out of each bottle (hence two and a half glasses for each person). You should get 8-9 glasses out of a bottle of bubbly.
Negotiation of corkage: Most hotels charge corkage, which is a handling fee for each bottle opened. More often than not, there is room for negotiation, so bargain hard. The hotel that wants your business the most will not stick their arm in when it comes to corkage.
Food matching: We are happy to guide you when matching your food with the right wine. It doesn’t need to be complicated. Most well-made wines are food friendly and we would not sell a wine to you if we didn’t think it was. If you are thinking of matching a red wine with meat dishes and a white wine with fish or chicken, you’re on the right track.
The red and white split: We would suggest half and half, although it may depend on how well you know your audience. Most people tend to buy in more white wine for a summer wedding.

Curious Wedding Gifts
If you’re looking to start or expand a wine collection, or if you are looking to put your reception drinks on your list, then we can help.
Fine wine collection: Whether you wish to include a wine gift on your own list, or are searching for the perfect wedding gift for the couple that has everything, we can guide you on the best bottles to suit your preference and budget. What about a wine gift pack that features bottles to be opened on a first, fifth, tenth or even twenty-fifth wedding anniversary? We have a few bottles ear-marked for such special gifts, so contact us to find out more.
Reception or party lists: Weddings aren’t cheap these days so many couples now opt to add the cost of drinks to their gift list. You can set up a list with us and your guests can contribute as little or as much towards the drinks bill as their gift to you. We'll give you plenty of time at the close of the list to arrange to buy anything else you need, and of course deliver everything in one go free of charge to your venue.
