Wedding Favors Your Guests Will Remember

Recently engaged? We’re a bit biased, but we think wine bottles are the perfect idea for memorable wedding favors that will undoubtedly be enjoyed by your wedding guests much more than Jordan almonds. A bottle of wine reminds your guests of your special day whenever they decide to enjoy the favor – whether that be the next evening or to toast your first wedding anniversary. You can save a bottle or two for yourself, as well, and you’ll have the perfect keepsake to enjoy a toast in your new home or for the birth of your first child. What you might not realize is that the four steps of the winemaking experience are also a memorable way to spend some quality time with your fiance during your engagement.

Making a barrel of wine takes almost a year, so once you decide on wine bottles as favors, you’ll want to get started right away. A barrel of wine will yield about 240 bottles of high quality wine and the cost of the barrel equates to about $10-$12 per bottle of wine, depending on the varietal you choose. We have a selection of customizable labels in designs to complement all types of wedding themes or we can work with you to design a label that truly reflects your personal style.

What’s In A Wine Label?

Besides often being well designed and eye-catching, wine labels usually indicate either the location where the wine is produced or the grape variety (aka varietal). While European wines are primarily named after their geographical origin, non-European wines almost always have the name of the varietal. For example, Bordeaux wine, which is produced in the Bordeaux region of France, is actually made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and even Carmenere and Malbec. Non-European wines almost always have the the varietal on the label, such as Cabernet Sauvignon from California.
