Red, White or Rosé… Which is your favourite?

Whether you’re a Red, White or Rosé drinker, we can all appreciate a good glass of wine. For us, after a tour of France, our admiration for Red wine was heightened. Back in 2017, we had the luxury of visiting the wonderful, Saint-Émilion. If you ever visit Bordeaux, Saint-Émilion is only a short drive east and you will be truly blown away.

The French wine town of Saint-Émilion is vast with historical buildings, friendly locals and great cuisine. But to top it, off Saint-Émilion is Bordeaux’s largest winemaking appellations. In 2017 it cost only 7euros each to visit the Bell tower of the church Monolith. If you want to admire the miles of vineyards and incredible views from above then this is a must!

On our stay, we tasted some incredible Red wine and when we say incredible we mean it! If you want to visit a good one, look into Vignobles et Châteaux, it’s perfectly situated next to the Bell tower.

For our wedding last year we travelled all the way to the beautiful area of Nice, France. On our arrival, we were presented with a bottle of Rosé wine and since then I have become a fan of the fruit infused, refreshing tastes of Rosé. It may not as popular as Red or White but on a warm summer’s day I’d certainly be picking up a bottle over the rest. 

I can certainly appreciate Rosé more now than ever especially with summer creeping up. Fun filled evenings of BBQ’s and seafood lunches down the Dorset coast gears me up to pop open a bottle of Rose and enjoy the tastes between food and wine. In my opinion, it’s always been a wine I found to be overlooked but for the last couple of years, Rosé has become more popular than ever.

One of the more popular choices is White wine. Whether its Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio or the super sweet Riesling, white wine is very popular but Chardonnay is the fairest of them all. Produced all over the world, from dry to sweet it can be served with almost all foods, some have it chilled and some don’t, either way, its a great choice out of the three.

The first-ever White wine I bought was Chardonnay, it was a must. Although after experimenting and trying different wines around the world I do prefer Sauvignon Blanc as Chardonnay does carry an oak taste which is something I only prefer from a Red wine. Although Sauvignon Blanc originated from France, one of my favourites came from Chile. It has a slightly sweet taste to it but immensely refreshing.

So which one do you favour most? Or if you’re like me, you like all at different times of the year!

Personalised Wine for Weddings

Weddings Personalised

When planning a wedding you may take to sites such as Pinterest or Instagram to get tips and inspiration on how you wish your wedding to look like. I’ve been to plenty of weddings and each one has been different. But most styles you see online will always somehow appear in a specific category such as traditional, retro etc. As for ours, having a wedding in a Chateau in Nice leaned our decision to style our wedding in a vintage, French theme. This included our own personalised wine at the venue under a beautiful grape arched vineyard. Considering we own a wine business it seemed most appropriate, especially when you could pick the grapes above to compliment the cheese.

But if you’re looking to supply some Personalised Wine at your wedding or you’re maybe looking down the route of gifting the Bridesmaids/Groomsmen. You may want to take a look at some of our wedding style designs below. It is also a great idea to gift the Bride and Groom if you feel a card may not be enough. Gifting the special couple a bottle of Personalised Wine is something they can either drink straight away or save for an anniversary. Either way, the bottle can always be kept as a beautiful memory of the special occasion, their wedding.

Not all weddings are traditional, some weddings take place in a field, a festival or even a barn so don’t feel the need to glorify the word ‘traditional’ for your own wedding. Our quirky cartoon designs will bring an ‘aww’ to all your attendees, plus they can be personalised to be all about you!

If your centrepieces consist of flowers or you’re looking for a simple yet elegant style take a look at our wedding wine designs, we have plenty to choose from. If you are a bride and struggling to find the perfect way to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids why not ask with a gift of personalised wine? Take a look at our Bridesmaids/Maid of Honour page, prices start from only £14.99 and include free standard delivery.

Nowadays it’s more about standing out than fitting in. There are many ways to make a traditional wedding different. Many couples search the internet to find unique little touches to make the day more memorable. One of these is personalisation. So why not wine?

The celebration of Mother’s Day is an important one, it is celebrated around the world in many different ways and although we cherish and respect our mother’s throughout the year, we always like to go a bit crazy spoiling her on her special day.

From, your Secret Santa

I was already in the Christmas spirit about 2 months ago so now that it’s only 36 days until the magical day it’s only right to start thinking about those special gifts you plan to give this Christmas. Secret Santa is one of those great gifting activities that you find very common in the workplace. It’s always nice when staff get together and participate in workplace activities like this, not only does it encourage all to get to know each other a bit more but you get a gift at the end of it!

It’s always nerve-wracking picking a name from the hat and then panicking when you haven’t got the faintest idea what to get them, but that’s the best bit! If you’re a real Secret Santa then you never give anything away, especially who you picked. Although in most workplaces you may find you or others always end up not so subtly asking around about your chosen person’s interests. If your getting nowhere or prefer to do a bit better than soaps and candles then take a look at our Christmas Selection of personalised wine.

IMG_1476

It’s a given that most people enjoy a nice glass of wine, but instead of popping a bottle in a bag why not make more of an effort and create a unique gift to surprise your fellow colleagues. They may assume that the wrapped up bottle of wine is simply that… but they’ll be surprised when they uncover a personalised design entirely about them. Whether it’s just a name you choose to include or a sweet message about how they are a fantastic colleague, treat them this Christmas with a one of a kind gift.

Regardless of your Christmas budget, we have many options for you. In the past, I’ve been involved in many Secret Santa games with budgets ranging from £5.00 to £20.00 but we have you covered. If you’re looking to splurge a tad then a bottle of our Christmas personalised wine is £14.99, although with Santa’s helping hand we are providing a 10% discount! Discount Code: XMAS10

Corporate

Why not get in the Christmas spirit this year and break up for the holidays rewarding your employees! If your planning on surprising your staff this Christmas why not take a look at our Corporate page and contact us for further details, we provide discounts on larger orders and free delivery for purchases over £50.

For someone special

Did you know that it is precisely 100 days until Valentines Day… Don’t worry, you have plenty of time to scratch your head and think of the perfect gift for your loved one.

But before that lovey-dovey day, you have Christmas, New Years, maybe a birthday? Or maybe you have an anniversary… (hopefully you haven’t forgotten). If so we have some wonderful bottles of personalised wine your partner is going to love.

Whether you’re planning a getaway and want to surprise your other half with a bottle of personalised wine, or you’ve got to stick to a budget this year then take a look at our Anniversary selection.

Anniversary?

It’s Your Bottle provide a wide selection suitable for all, we have worked hard to design labels which can be adapted to suit our customers. This is why all wording can be amended, because, at the end of the day, our aim is for our customers to have a gift truly unique to every individual.

Milestone Anniversary?

Whether they choose to drink it straight away or savour it for another time, it will be a special moment they will never forget. To see all our Anniversary selection just click here. 

Birthday Gift for your loved one?

Speaking for many of you out there who may have a similar mind to me… Who doesn’t want Wine and a nice meal on their birthday? Throw in a spa day and the fact of getting a year older has been thrown out the window, even the extra wrinkle won’t bring anyone down. If it does you can just drink it away!

For a Friend

A birthday happens once a year and you either dread it because its another year older or you look forward to the one day you can have and do what you wish. I normally tend to blow out the candles and hope the wrinkles don’t come too soon but a bottle of wine will suffice, especially when its personalised with a birthday message dedicated to you. All our designs from our Birthday selection can be adapted, we even have some incredible gift box options if you want to add further luxury to the personalised wine.

It’s Your Bottle – This year so far

2018

It has been a fast-moving, incredibly wonderful, memorable year for It’s Your Bottle. Although January only seemed like yesterday, this year has probably been the busiest and full on we’ve had. This year we only started promoting and marketing It’s Your Bottle and since then it has been a learning and a fantastic journey from there.

Featured on ITV This Morning

In July we had the biggest surprise when we were contacted with the opportunity of sending our products to the ITV studios in London where our personalised wine would be featured on the popular much-loved TV show, This Morning. Stating on the feature, according to a recent survey, alcohol is the product to gift someone. Even Mr Schofield highlighted that you can drink the wine and keep the bottle. So you heard it from the mouth of Philip Schofield!

Our Wedding Day

Us, amongst our family and friends, flew to the beautiful southern region of Nice, France where we said our ‘I Do’s’ at a French Villa in the mountains. It’s Your Bottle was created when we started planning our own wedding so we feel our business and wedding were very much connected making it monumental and connected. It was very obvious to us and our guests that we would include the business and have our very own personalised wedding wine, we’ve even kept a bottle to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary.

 

Blogging Collaborations

We have had the absolute pleasure of working with some incredible people this year. After researching these talented individuals we had the honour of working with the UK based bloggers who kindly reviewed our personalised wine. The feedback and support we received has been a blessing. They are truly talented and each one of them has a unique style as a person and with their writing.

Christmas

The year is not over, and we have some busy months ahead with Christmas soon approaching. Christmas has always been a busy period and this year is no different. We’ve ensured that we have designed a variety of labels to bring a smile to anyone’s face, even Scrooge. We are always looking to make sure that the gift you buy someone is truly memorable and worthwhile. Even though the bottle may be empty by the end of Christmas Day, it can be kept as a memory of a special time enjoyed with loved ones.

Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids

He’s bent down on one knee, asked the wonderful question and you’ve said yes! Once you’ve told your friends and family and stopped staring at the beautiful ring on your finger, you may start to deliberate who will be your lucky Bridesmaids and Maid of Honour.

“Who is going to be your Maid of Honour?”

“Who is going to be your Bridesmaid?”

“Are you going to have multiple Bridesmaids?”

It’s a given, you may only have one or you might have many but they become your Bridesmaids and Maid of Honour for a reason… Because throughout it all they’ve been your friend and your support system for as long as you’ve known them. Many people may think asking the question is easy but you’re asking those individuals to not only put on a pretty dress and walk down the aisle with you but assist with many jobs along the way.

So if your thinking of gathering them at your house or asking them individually. How about asking them with a bottle of personalised wine? Also if you are a little like me (how I was when I got married) you may find down the road of organising your wedding that you dabble into the world of a bridezilla and you can carefully remind them that they signed up for this when excepting the beautiful gift of wine.

So you can now ask them before the wedding and thank them on the wedding day with a beautiful wine bottle bespoke to them!
