Molloys Wedding Wines & Party Service

Planning an Irish wedding involves many details, one of the most important being the arrangements for alcohol. From selecting the perfect champagne or prosecco for the reception, to choosing wines for the tables and spirits for toasting the speeches, we’ve got you covered.

We work closely with wedding coordinators, venues, and couples to provide a seamless consultation service, taking the stress out of arranging drinks for your special day. Our extensive range of spirit miniatures is a popular choice for wedding favors, and we offer discounts on bulk purchases. Contact us at for more information.

Wedding Wines

How much do I need?

Quantities: allow three glasses per person, expect to get/budget for five glasses per bottle. Do the sums, and round it up to the nearest case. Generally speaking white is more popular than red. A ratio of three white to two red is typical.

Sparkling wine reception: allow one and a half glasses per head, and expect to get seven glasses per bottle.

Toast after dinner: Many people now opt for a ‘drink of choice’ rather than a champagne toast after the speeches.

How to choose my wedding wine?

While it’s your wedding, try to make sure that you choose a wine which is a crowd-pleaser. Generally speaking, anything too crisp, too tannic / grippy, too alcoholic or just too distinctive is probably not an ideal choice.
Aim for fruity white wines, with medium acidity. Red wines should be medium bodied, with smooth tannin and ample fruit.
Current popular choices for weddings include Pinot Grigio, Chilean/New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay is back in fashion. In reds, fruity Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are popular, while a smooth Rioja or Bordeaux will always impress.

Our most popular red wine recommendations for a wedding;

Domaine Caude Val Merlot

Château de Farel Côtes du Rhône

Vina Sancho Garces Rioja

d'A Malbec

White wine favourites include Pinot Grigio, unoaked Chardonnay, French Sauvignon, southern French wines (Languedoc, Oc, Gascony).

Our most popular white wine recommendations for a wedding;

Domaine Caude Val Chardonnay

Sancerre ‘Clocher d’Amelie,’ Jean Max Roger

Macon Villages, Caves de Lugny

None of these should break the bank, and don’t worry about trying to offer a matching red and white.


Prosecco & Champagne 

It's perfectly acceptable to choose Prosecco over Champagne!  We have an award-winning Champagne (Jean Comyn), as well as several fantastic Prosecco to choose from.  While seven glasses per bottle is an average pour for sparkling wine, you could squeeze eight glasses, depending on the glassware being used. Six would give a generous serve!
