Wedding Bar Service
The Vision and Budget for each Wedding are different, so we work with each Couple to develop a Menu for bar services that works best for you.
The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch is also the home of Stowe Winery. We have a full liquor license to service your event beverage service. Our co-founder, Steve is a Sommelier, who is currently completing the 4th of 5 levels towards his “MW” and has completed the prestigious French Wine Scholar program.. Our other co-founder, Jennifer has a wealth of experience in bar services. Together, we have assembled a top-notch team of professional bartender / mixologists.
We have a large, custom-built, fully stocked bar and provide all glassware for bar service. Our stemware is elegant Riedel Crystal. Unlike other venues with outside bar services, we do not charge for glassware, bar setup or bartenders.
In addition, we currently have 6 of our own wines that Steve has developed through collaboration with vineyards that he works with in Europe and California . We wanted the house wines that we offer our clients to be of high quality and a very good value. We feel we have accomplished this through these wines that are offered under our Stowe Winery labels. By partnering with vineyards in Europe and California, we have produced excellent wines at reasonable prices. Our wines are available for tastings and also available for retail sale. They are often used as bridal party gifts or to take home as a remembrance of your special event. The current offerings are the classic varietals that would be appropriate for most weddings and events:
Cabernet Sauvignon (In addition to our standard “Cab” which is very good, we now have a limited production run of our Napa Valley Cab, which is excellent.)
In addition, we can provide your favorite wines from around the world and Steve, loves to collaborate with our chefs to create custom pairings.
We offer our wedding and event clients bar service packages that will meet their vision and budget:
