Setting the Stage

When your guests are ready to order, it’s time to step into action. Repeat their order back to ensure accuracy, and then select the perfect sparkling wine glasses. Placing them in the correct position on the table sets the stage for a delightful experience. Don’t forget to bring the pre-prepared ice bucket from our cellar, ensuring it’s next to the table, ready to chill the wine to perfection.

The Grand Presentation

As you retrieve the chosen bottle of sparkling wine from our well-stocked fridge, double-check that it’s the correct one. With the utmost care, carry the bottle to the table, making sure the label is visible. Repeat the order back to the host, including the wine’s name, vintage, and producer. This attention to detail sets the stage for an exceptional wine service experience.

Unveiling the Bubbles

Now, it’s time for the grand unveiling. Find a side table or Gary Don to assist you in opening the bottle. Remove the foil from around the cork, using the tab or a waiter’s friend. With a gentle twist to loosen the cage, securely hold the cork and point the bottle away from the guests. Release the cork in a controlled manner, and carefully wipe around the neck of the bottle before returning it to the table.

The Art of Pouring

Hold the bottle, ensuring the label remains visible, and pour a sample for the host. Wait for their approval before moving clockwise to pour wine for the other guests. It is customary to serve ladies before gentlemen, maintaining a sense of chivalry. Take your time while pouring to prevent any precious bubbles from escaping. Catch any drips with a service cloth to maintain a clean and elegant presentation.

The Perfect Top-Up

Throughout the meal, your guests may require top-ups of their sparkling wine. Use your judgement to assess when it’s appropriate to offer a refill. Be mindful not to top-up too frequently, as this can disrupt the flow of the dining experience. Before topping up, always wipe down the bottle to keep it pristine. Begin by refilling the guests’ glasses before attending to the host, and then gracefully place the bottle back in the ice bucket.

At Hook’d Up Bar and Grill, our team prides itself on providing an exceptional dining experience, and serving sparkling wine is no exception. With expertise, attention to detail, and a touch of elegance, we ensure that every bottle of sparkling wine is served with the utmost professionalism.
