JAMES AND OLIVIA
Married on 2nd July 2016
MAGNUM £93.61 CASE OF 3 £279
Elegance and poise are the watchwords for Delamotte’s exceptional Blanc de Blancs Champagne from this old-established house. Made from the grapes of top Grand Cru vineyards, this refined non-vintage Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay) from Champagne Delamotte more than hints at the family pedigree – Delamotte is the sister house of Champagne Salon, perhaps the world’s rarest Champagne. Our buyer’s favourite!
BOTTLE £32.95 CASE OF 6 £197.70
The beautiful family-run Wiston Estate lies on a south-facing escarpment of pure chalk. The vineyard is planted to the classic trio of sparkling wine grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Refreshing and fine, with the fragrance and fruit of an English orchard. Its precise filigree texture gives more than a nod to French bone structure.
MAGNUM £65.50 CASE OF 6 £393
Intense plum-ruby, this presents a complex nose, bright, fresh, primary fruit coulis and cooked fruit conserve allied to darker, savoury nuances, leather, spice and even quite developed notes with hints of truffle. The palate is powerful, rich and dense, echoing the aromatics offered on the palate set within a firmly structured frame. This will do well during élevage, with generous oak becoming increasingly integrated. A well-handled translation of the vintage which retains a lovely fresh focus throughout – very fine balance.
BOTTLE PRICES START FROM £7.50
Our own labels have been at the heart of the Corney & Barrow list since 1780. Each wine is made exclusively for us, representing the best styles and regions across Europe. The perfect selection for any wedding, each own label wine will dazzle and delight your taste buds, all ideal for the big day!
Drink what you need, return what you don’t. It’s that simple. We’ll help you choose and quantify safe in the knowledge that you won’t run dry (and neither will your bank account)
Many venues charge corkage if you don’t use their wine providers, which often ‘encourages’ organisers to go with the options available. Many of our wines are less than £10 a bottle, which could make them cheaper than the venue alternatives (even with the corkage charge). Let’s talk.
Classic combinations, picnics, experiential banquets – our portfolio of over 4,000 wines means there’s something for everyone. Let’s start with a few suggestions
Where did you meet your other half? Wherever it was it reveals a lot about you as a couple and could give you some ideas on which wine to choose for your big day. We have teamed up with Brides magazine to suggest our perfect matches.
Everyone selling wine will tell you they offer the best, but ultimately ‘the best’ is your choice. We know that selecting wine is a matter of taste so here’s the opportunity to do just that. You can either arrange a free of charge tasting or order our mixed case and redeem the value against your order should you decide to use Corney & Barrow for your celebrations.
Congratulations on your engagement! Now the search is on for the venue of your dreams. We supply venues up and down the country, venues that share our values of providing high quality produce and service.
Deciding on your wines for the big day can often be a daunting and intimidating process. We have come up with some questions and answers which we hope will help make it that little bit easier and we would be more than happy to answer any questions or offer our free advice.

A must-have book, and beautiful gift, for lovers of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Burgundy in general.

Gert Crum captures some of the magic in this wonderful reference book, a must for wine lovers and wine historians everywhere. With tasting notes by Michael Broadbent MW, photography by Jan Bartelsman and introduction by Philippe Claudel.
BOTTLE £29.95 CASE OF 6 £179.70
Le Cupole IGT Tenuta di Trinoro is a great wine for Italian wine lovers. Attractive, deep plum-cherry in colour. The nose is immediately inviting, a combination of cherries and berries complemented by a dash of white pepper, mineral undercurrents and a bright, sweet focus. The palate is rounded, rich yet fresh and upbeat – red fruit coming to the fore, with a stony, lightly spiced backdrop.
