Village Craft Winemaker - Wedding Wines
Village Craft Winemaker - Wedding Wines Serving Guidelines

When should you make your wedding wine?

Your wine will be quite enjoyable on the day it’s bottled, however we recommend you leave whites about one to two months and reds two to three months before serving them at your wedding. Tell us the date of your wedding and we’ll make sure you have a winemaking appointment far enough in advance to make the best-tasting wine.

VCW Serving Guidelines

Steps to estimate your Serving Needs:
1. Calculate the number of people that will be drinking at your event.
2. Multiply the total number of drinking guests by four (to estimate the maximum number of standard drinks per person that you will need).
3. Divide the number of calculated standard drinks by five (5 per bottle) to get the number of bottles needed.
4. Divide the number of bottles needed by 30 to determine the number of batches / kits required and then round up.

For example:
1. 100 wine drinking guests attending
2. 100 x 4 standard drinks = 400 standard drinks
3. 400 / 5 (5 glasses per 750ml bottle) = 80 bottles of wine
4. 80/30 750ml bottles per batch = 2.67 or 3 batches of wine will be needed.

Therefore, you could make one batch of red wine, one batch of white wine, and one batch of rosé wine.

Feel free to contact us for more information or questions regarding your personal event.
