On Wednesday last week, we were honoured to host The UK Alliance of Wedding Planners at The Clerkenwell Collection and discuss wine for weddings. Moez Seraly, our CEO, talked the planners through four of our favourite wines that offer the perfect choice for a stylish celebration.
First off was the Domaine de Landreau Cremant de Loire NV
a beautiful and fresh sparkling wine, which was enjoyed by all – a wonderful alternative to Champagne:

For those who are seeking the ultimate in indulgence, the second showcase wine was Tendil et Lombardi Cuvée Hyménée Champagne NV
. This Champagne is produced in small quantities (3,000 bottles a year – as a comparison Moet is produced in millions of bottles a year) and is enjoyed in the world’s best restaurants and by the likes of Sophia Loren.
Next it was on to white wine, represented by Petit Chablis Charly Nicolle 2012
, a great match for any seafood or light dishes to be served at your reception. The producer, Charly Nicolle is a favourite amongst France’s best Michelin Starred restaurants.
Lastly the planners tasted the Mas Amiel Maury Vintage 2008
, a dessert wine like you have never tried before, an exceptional match with chocolate based wedding cakes. Pure indulgence. Yum.
Hopefully those wines have given you something to think about regarding wines for weddings. There are some more ideas on our Pinterest board Wine and Weddings
, which will add to as we discover more.
As for the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners, it was such a pleasure to meet the group, we will certainly be working with them more closely in the future. Their dedication to excellence chimes in well with our own aims and there will be lots of exciting developments to come. Watch this space for future announcements.
Lydia, The Perfect Cellar Team
