Events Drinks & Bars
The Penn Estate team can set up and manage all your drinks requirements throughout your wedding or event. We pride ourselves on ensuring you and your guests enjoy the best-informed selections, a fully personalised drinks experience, and exceptional service that leaves nothing to chance.
Why choose Pennsylvania Castle Estate Cellar?
Of course, you have many and varied options when it comes to organising the drinks for your event, and we’d never assume or insist you use us. We’d simply like to share an elegant and informed selection with you, and service to match – all fully customised to your preferences. Enquire today to find out more about our events drinks and bars service.
How do you select your wines?
The ethos behind our selection of wines and spirits is that they must have a story to tell, reflect the expectations of our guests and offer a range of price points.
For a truly exceptional wine experience, Penn Estate Cellar can also arrange consultation and tasting with The Dorset Wine Company in Poundbury, Dorchester. We work closely with Jonathan Charles and his team, and they’re happy to provide a bespoke wine-matching service for your event and host tasting for you on our behalf.
What are the key reasons to use the Pennsylvania Castle Estate Cellar for my special event?
We understand every aspect of your drinks service and how it is best delivered. With trusted relationships between us and your chosen caterer, we can arrange everything without the need for you to co-ordinate with another supplier on deliveries, setting up, and breaking down.
Whilst planning your event you will get to know our events team well, they will work with you as an integrated part of your event planning and be there on the day knowing exactly what is required when. The Penn Creative Collection team will then co-ordinate your bar set ups and styling meaning that the ‘drinks’ parts of your day are considered within your full design.
We can provide drinks throughout your stay. Covering everything from welcome drinks on arrival at the Castle, every aspect of a wedding or event, and even brunch the next day. Our team will manage and co-ordinate everything so that your guests continue to have an exceptional experience. If there is a special request or something unexpected it will be your events team that will resolve problems for you quietly and simply.
Where guests choose to spend their budget varies from event to event and if you are looking to provide a drink service in the most economical way possible then the Estate Cellar may not be the right choice for your celebration, as we know there are many other options available to you. However, if you want a special experience, then that is where we can deliver. Our drinks will be a talking point for your guests who, if interested, can have access to tasting notes and stories as to why these wine choices were made.
The provision of alcohol either via a table services or managing the bar, combined with a variety of guests of different ages and requirements is not something you want to be worrying about on the day. With your Events Team managing sourcing, and a combination of your chosen catering team and the Penn Bar team serving your guests throughout the day, you can be confident that your they will be looked after by a team you know well.
The Celebration Packages
Champagne, wine, and alcohol-free alternatives for your welcome drinks, canapés and drinks reception, dining and evening function. The Pennsylvania Castle Estate Events team can help you choose your wines from a suitably wide range of options.
Of course. Your event is about you and your guests, and you may have specific themes, needs or tastes – so you’re more than welcome to pick and choose aspects of different packages with our design team. Or you can go completely off-piste and design your own drinks menu with support from Dorset Wines.
Meanwhile, we appreciate that some guests may prefer an alcohol-free selection, so we ensure there are plenty of well-considered options to support that. Enquire today to find out more about our events drinks and bars service.
Yes, of course. All our wines are available to purchase by full or half-case. And you can order in advance to enjoy them together at the Castle, or to take home and enjoy after your stay.
Absolutely. During a licensed event, the Estate Team will run the bar even if you choose to provide your own drinks, as we hold the licence to do so.
You can order anything in the cellar from the Penn Estate e-shop at any time before, during or after your stay.
