    Create the Perfect Wine Wedding Registry

    Did you know that you can create a wine wedding registry with Wine Please with just a few simple clicks? It's free and easy to set up and works just like any other online gift registry. All you need to do is select a range of beautiful wines as well some gorgeous glassware and your guests can visit our site to buy you the perfect wedding gift. 

    Here's what Kathryn and Mark had to say about their Wine Please wedding registry:

    "Thanks for all of your help! All of the wine arrived safe and sound and we are very pleased with the service offered by Wine Please. Most of our guests purchased gifts through the wine registry which was great - no lugging presents home from the reception! They've all said that the website was easy to use and thought it was a great idea. We would have no hesitation in using Wine Please again for gifts etc and in recommending it to others. Thanks again for the fabulous service and the wine! Our wine rack is now full to overflowing ... hooray!

    Kind regards, Kathryn and Mark”

    Take a look at our sample registry or go straight to creating your list, it's easy to get started and you can edit your registry as often as you like leading up to the big day. What are you waiting for? We think waking up the day after your wedding with a cellar full of your favourite wines is the best way to start a marriage!

    Cheers, Mr & Mrs WP

  • Stonier International Pinot Noir Tasting (SIPNOT) 29/10/2013

    Wine Please were lucky enough to attend the fourteenth Stonier International Pinot Noir Tasting event in Sydney last night. The event was hosted by Stonier Wines at the MCA in Sydney and 'The Wine Man' himself, Peter Bourne, was the MC.

    It was a fantastic event showcasing 12 of the world's finest Pinot Noir wines in a blind tasting. Each table consisted of 6- 8 people and a 'Wine Expert'. We were lucky enough to be seated next to our expert, Mr Ken Gargett, Wine Writer and great bloke.

    We were delighted by the peeps on our table who were from the Mornington Peninsula and soon discovered that every person and every table had completely different opinions on the wines. Everyone's opinion was valid - nobody was wrong and everyone was right -  which is exactly how we like to approach wine. 

    We were encouraged to taste in silence the six wines in each bracket and then discuss and rank the wines as a table. Ken opted for the voting system which meant that we didn't have to convince each other of the merits of each wine and could relax and chat about wine some more (in a totally non-wanky way). The wines were then discussed by representatives from a few tables followed by the panel including James Halliday AM, Huon Hooke and Mike Symons.

    Our highlights for the night were the following wines:

    • 2011 Dawson & James Pinot Noir
    • 2011 Stonier KBS Vineyard Pinot Noir
    • 2010 Domaine Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny, Les Sentiers
    • 2011 Mt Difficulty Long Gully Pinot Noir
    • 2010 Flowers Sea View Ridge Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir
    • 2010 Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits St Georges, Les Pruliers
    • 2010 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

     

    We can't wait for next year!

    Thanks to Ken Gargett, Stonier Wines and our new friends from Mornington Peninsula for a fabulous night.
