Why do I need a Wine Concierge and What is That Anyway?
Regardless if it is a party, event or wedding, wine is a celebration essential. Today's blog was written by Karen, a Wine Concierge I depend on to make sure the wine selections are perfect for your celebration.
Guaranteed, your wedding day should be one of the most memorable and meaningful days of your life. No doubt, you will spend countless hours pouring over the details with Jan from ‘Perfect Events by Jan’, and perhaps you’ll have a stack of check lists that are all itemized by category and level of importance. Simply put, every single detail needs to be accounted for and thought through. After all, you’re looking for perfection, right?
With that in mind, the wine served to your guests, your family, and your wedding party is no exception. Your singular goal is to have everyone at your wedding raving about the entire event and how fabulous it all was; what’s enjoyed in their glasses definitely weighs in.
This is where the services of a Wine Concierge step in. Having someone that can think much deeper than simply “Do you want the house wines for your guest tables?” is of utmost importance, because (and we’re being brutally honest here) most house wines really aren’t going to create that WOW factor you’re looking for or be anything to write home about.
A Wine Concierge will help select unique bottles based on your personalized style. Do you and your fiancé have any hobbies that you’d like to tie in? Are you having an upscale barn wedding where you would like the wine to share that theme? Are you enthralled with a certain Wine Region or varietal that you would like to feature and share with your wedding guests? How about selecting a special bottle to use as gifts for your wedding party? Even if you know nothing about wine and “just” want a red and a white for each table,that’s no random selection and your Wine Concierge will have the exact right option for you.
My name is Karen, and I’m thrilled to partner with Jan as her Wine Concierge. I’ve loved wine for as long as I can remember in my adult life and have chosen to use that passion in my career in the Wine industry. I am privileged to work with boutique Wineries around the US and share theirs mall-production wines here in the Chicago-land area. Each of these Wineries, Winemakers and Owners share their personal stories and vision with me, along with their phenomenal wines. I’ll be the bridge between you and them; creating the perfect match to elevate your special day.
So, the question shouldn’t be “Why do I need a Wine Concierge?”, but rather “Why wouldn’t I?”
