Make Your Own Wedding Wine.

Making and serving your own wine at your wedding reception is not only fun, but it's great for the budget as it's usually much less expensive than purchasing wine from the reception hall. Plus, you'll get a more personalized experience and result than at the LCBO.

A wine kit is basically a winery in a box, and in three easy steps it can be transformed into bottles of your own personal vintage. Plus you can customize the labels for a great personalized touch for your wedding.

If you are considering providing your guests with your own wine be sure to plan ahead. Although you can purchase kits that will be ready to bottle in as little as four weeks, most wines, just like we hope, your ­marriage, will improve and become better with time. It’s best to start your kits at least six months before your event. Wine should age for at least a month in the bottle before the subtle characteristics will even begin to show in the aromas and tastes. With reds, especially the Ultra-Premium kits, consider aging it 6 months to more than a year before you serve it at your wedding. Even white wines can benefit from some aging prior to serving out of the bottle.

The Liquor Licensing Act of Ontario allows for the serving of wine you have made yourself at celebrations surrounding any religious ceremony subject to the applicable Special Event Licence being obtained. Applications are available at any LCBO Store or may be downloaded from the website.

Your local vintner will work with you to help you choose the perfect wine for your special day and determine how much you need. Although many connoisseurs will recommend either a red or a white depending on the meal being served, most people are not that picky and will drink the type they enjoy the most.

You should count on each person consuming about half a bottle at dinner, but have extra for those guests who prefer wine to other alcohol. And don’t forget to put on a batch or two for wedding favours. Ice Wine makes a great personalized gift your guests will truly enjoy.
