Throwing a party? Make it a Magnum!

Posted by No 1 Family Estate on May 06, 2016

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, here at No.1 Family Estate we don’t think that bubbles need to be reserved for a special occasion. We tend to concur with Madam Lily Bollinger, who said, 

“I only drink champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not in a hurry and drink it when I am, otherwise I never touch the stuff unless I am thirsty.”

That said, a bottle of bubbles is often the best way to get a celebration started! If you’re throwing a party and really want to make your first bottle memorable why not make it a Magnum!

Nothing sets a festive atmosphere like a giant bottle being opened and poured!
Investing in a Magnum ensures that when your guests, friends and family drink their first glass from the same bottle, your celebration becomes a truly shared experience.
It is often easier serving wines at a dinner party or function from a Magnum.
You can expect to get around 12 glasses of wine from a Magnum.
Don’t forget that a Magnum makes a fabulous gift for somebody special.
A Magnum is not the largest format wine bottle you can get; The Melchizedek, which is named for a king & priest in the Book of Genesis, is the equivalent of 40 standard bottles of bubbly. However, go any larger than a Magnum and pouring could become a team event… That’s why we recommend the Magnum for your celebration.

Our No.1 Reserve is available in very limited numbers as a Magnum, and presented in a wooden box.
