Wine For Events
Give your next special event a personal touch by bringing your own wine! The Liquor Licensing Act allows for the serving of your own wine at celebrations. At the Wine Cellar, we have supplied wine for wedding receptions, anniversaries, milestone birthdays, bridal showers, company special events, and Christmas parties. Packages include custom-made labels, shrinks, and 29-30 bottles of wine. We also offer wine bottles to be given away as gifts or wedding favours.
Book a consultation with us to customize your wine package for your unique day. We are happy to offer suggestions on the most popular wines to serve at your event, as well as ensuring it pairs well with the meal you plan to serve.
The quality of wine you choose will influence the flavour. We offer 4, 5, 6 and 8-week wines. It’s best to allow your wine to age at least 6 months prior to your event.
A Few Tips…
Confirm with the venue you have chosen that they allow you to bring your own wine. If they do, make sure you know whether or not they charge a corkage fee. This is a fee that some locations charge for serving your wine. A good way to reduce this cost is to use larger bottles.
You will need to apply for a Special Occasion License if you intend to serve the wine at your special event. Visit http://acgo.on.ca for details. You do not require a license if you intend to give the wine away as favours.
How much wine do you need? A typical wedding is 4 batches of wine, with 2 reds and 2 whites. Use the equation below to determine how many bottles you need. This is an equation for 750 ml bottles.
(# of guests—non-drinkers) x 2 glasses per person/ 4 glasses per bottle= # of bottles
Come in and see us for a consultation and we will help you determine how much you need based on the number of guests you have invited!
