If you’re providing your own wedding wine, you’ll know how costs can add up. Luckily, GrapePip is here to help, thanks to their clever discounts and Try Before You Buy offer!
What is GrapePip?
GrapePip is an easy-to-use online platform for the buying and selling of overstocks and superfluous wine. It was built by some of the best web techies in the UK and took two years to put together. We wanted to get it just right!
How does your Try-Before-You-Buy system work?
Go on the GrapePip website, read the tasting notes and identify the wines that you think sound delicious and just right for your wedding. You can then buy and have delivered a single bottle of that wine for assessment at home in order to check that it is suitable and to your taste!
How can it benefit couples planning a wedding?
Try-Before-You-Buy wines sold on GrapePip are end-of-line stock, or perhaps the last cases of a superseded vintage. Deep discounts are the norm, therefore couples organising weddings and other large get-togethers are able either to drink cheaper, or to drink much better for the same amount of money!
How far in advance do you recommend couples order?
Most wines in the Try-Before-You-Buy category are everyday drinking wines, not designed for laying down. We therefore suggest that those organising weddings should come to GrapePip within two months of their big day, thereby assuring that what they end up drinking at their wedding is the same as what they tasted and selected.
How can couples choose their wines?
Almost all wines in the Try-Before-You-Buy category come with tasting notes of one sort or another. This enables bargain-hunters to get some idea of the style of the wine and whether or not it might be the sort of thing that might interest them.
How much wine do you recommend couples purchase?
This is always going to be a tricky question! The key is too much, rather than too little. Of course, there will be drivers and most likely pregnant people present and some will probably want to drink beer right through the event, but we reckon that three-quarters of a bottle per head should cover it, split between red and white and champagne-sparkling wine; perhaps a bit more fizz, especially if there are to be toasts. So for a 100 person wedding, for example, I would recommend 24 bottles of red, 24 of white and perhaps 30 of the fizzy stuff.
