After nearly 30 years recommending wines for all occasions, we think that we know a bit about your wine needs! We only stock wines that we are happy to recommend and believe offer value for money. Our wines range from 8.99 upwards with award winning wines from €10.00. We can talk you through your requirements in choosing a wine, help decide the quantity you'll need and what to spend.
Just ask and we'll put you right!
Expert Advice - There are some wines that you may love yourself but that just aren't right for a party. So remember that you are trying to please the group - not just one person!
SALE & RETURN on all your drink purchases
It's hard to know what quantities that you'll need for your party, and while the average usage for wine is about 1/2 btl per person you don't know if this will be red or white wine. So you'll need a bit more than you expect to use and McCabes Wines are happy to refund unused bottles IN FULL. There are a few conditions but nothing tricky - goods must be in original packaging, in resaleable condition - all pretty obvious really.
You can return up to 30% of wine or beer purchased for a full refund
(although especially ordered wines not normally stocked cannot be returned for credit)
So if you are having 50 guests, you'll need 24 btls approx. but you can take an extra case knowing that you can return it if unused.
PLEASE NOTE: You must request Sale & Return whem ordering/purchasing your wines etc.
Expert Advice - While normal consumption at a party might reach 1/2btl per person, if you are also serving beer then your wine consumption will drop dramatically
Sit-down functions and smaller groups (dinner parties etc) may consume more than this average. Book Launches, Gallery openings etc consume much less than the average.
DISCOUNTS ON YOUR WINES
We offer 10% discounts on all wines (except Special Offers) when you purchase 6 btls or more. This discount also applies for SALE & RETURN purchases. Special Case Offers available in store are only for outright purchase not Sale & Return.
.Expert Advice - If you are ordering a large quantity of wine and are willing to keep it all please let us know , as we are frequently able to offer a better price for outright purchase.
LOAN OF GLASSES
We lend glasses (subject to availability) to our customers when you purchase the relevant drink. While we do charge a deposit to cover shortages/breakages, this is refundable.
Please be aware that this is a 'Free' service for our customers and quantities of glasses are linked to purchase size.
While we have plenty of glasses, larger functions may have to hire glasses due to quantities required (we share our glasses with all our customers).
Also, we do not hire glasses - we only lend to our customers.
Glasses can be hired from any of these companies plus many others - Hire All Party Hire 01 2953821, Caterhire 01 2943111, Select Hire 01 2907400
Expert Advice - Don't offer a choice! Serve only 1 white wine & 1 red wine at your function, as otherwise you won't know what your guests are drinking when it's time to top them up.
Delivery/Collection is available by prior arrrangement. While we do try to please, it is impossible to agree a specific delivery time and a 'delivery window' is the best we can do.
Local delivery is free if you order (and keep!) at least 12 btls wine. Glasses can be returned to our shop at your convenience the following day (10.30am - 10.00pm Mon-Sat & 12.30pm - 8.00pm Sundays/Bank Holidays).Delivery outside normal hours can be arranged but will incur charges. Expert Advice - Don't leave the small jobs 'til the last minuteas it's best to get them done earlier. For example, ice can be collected earlier as it keeps very well in the garden if out of direct sunlight.
