One of the details you may overlook when planning a wedding reception is the wine. You might have planned some cocktails for welcoming and a bar for later in the evening, but have you thought about wines to pair with the wedding breakfast and a sparkling to toast with?
Below we look at the main moments where quality wine is essential on your big day.1. Welcome drinks
Some people prefer to make a special cocktail for this, but wine is a beautifully elegant choice for those that like to keep things traditional. A wine such as a sparkling Blanc de Blancs would be ideal for this. And if you do want to do something a bit different, then why not have a very English cocktail with Foxhole Gin and Bolney’s Classic Cuvée? Or try an English Vermouth and tonic!Grape British Cocktail

A romantic sparkling wine is the best choice here, such as our Cuvée Rosé. It is our most popular choice for weddings.3. Wine to pair with your meal
This is the most important area in which to select your wine very carefully. The right wine will bring out the flavours in your food, the wrong wine will throw everything off balance. At Bolney, our team is happy to help you select the best wines for your Menu.4. Favours
