H2B and I like a glass of wine and are particularly partial to a Malbec. Because the venue is dry hire our caterer is serving whatever drinks we get for the day (no corkage) so we just needed to get some drink.
The small wedding meant that it wasn't going to justify a booze cruise so we've looked at Costco, Majestic, Macro and various other wine options over the last few months trying to find a decent deal.
Eventually we noticed that Tesco were doing a limited time offer of 25% off on 6 or more bottles on a pretty broad range. Our favourite Malbec was down from £8 a bottle to £6 anyway plus 25% off - £4.50 a bottle. Plus we'd discussed at length our desire to have Champagne for the toasts. We're using prosecco for arrival drinks but for that one moment we want our preferred Champagne. Fortunately the Veuve Cliquot yellow lable was also in the 25% off deal as was the rosé so we bit the bullet and ordered our red, white and toasting wine. Went with a known brand Pinot Grigio for the white as a safe choice.
There's a 36 bottle limit on each transaction so we're doing a separate order for the prosecco and the Pimm's isn't in the deal so that can wait until nearer the time, as can the soft drinks.
The only surprise was that the pickers didn't think to pick up the 6 bottle cases to make up our 18 red and sent it all as loose bottles!! So we're now planning to go in and ask if we can have some wine boxes from them...
So for the next nearly 5 months my parents garage is playing host to our wedding wine.
