How Much Wine do you Need?
A standard bottle of champagne/ sparkling wine will serve 6 glasses. For a champagne reception, you should ideally allow 2-3 glasses per person. So for 100 guests, you will need 100x2 = 200 glasses or 34 bottles.
Red and White Wine
For dinner allow a half bottle per person with a little extra just to be sure! Normally there is an even split between red and white but in summer months, you should allow for more white wine. A standard bottle will serve 6 medium sized glasses, so, 1 case of wine (12 bottles) = 60 glasses. Don’t forget soft drinks for the drivers and ensure you have enough water for your guests for all day functions, allow a half litre of water per person.
Ensure you have enough glasses, ice and ice-buckets, - our experienced staff will be glad to advise you on the amount you will need.
Many venues will offer you a list of house wines but if you are keen to bring the highly awarded O’Briens wines, make sure to enquire about corkage. This is a charge added at a venue for every bottle of wine or champagne served that was not bought on the premises.
