I was recently sent some samples of sparkling wine to review for English Wedding Blog readers. Providing your own wedding wine can be a good way to save money; it’s also a necessity for weddings at home, garden party wedding receptions and for village hall weddings which are all becoming more and more popular with UK couples.

The wines I reviewed were both from Brown Brothers: their Cienna 2009 and Cienna Rosso are both low alcohol sparkling wines, from the Cienna grape variety which is unique to Brown Brothers and bred by crossing Sumoll (a Spanish grape) with Cabernet Sauvignon.

I do love wine – but I’m no expert wine taster so I enlisted my parents to help me review the wines.

My Mum and Dad (who you may have seen on the English Wedding facebook page) know their stuff when it comes to wines so while they gave their expert verdicts on taste and quality, I thought I’d share a little extra information with you on choosing wine for your wedding day.
