f your friends and family enjoy epicurean delights, like wine tasting and sipping on some bubbly, host a Wine Tasting Party, either at a winery, wine tasting room, or even your home.
A wine tasting party gives your guests the opportunity to mix and mingle in a beautiful atmosphere, while learning the art of wine-making (and tasting an array of flavorful wines).
Serve bite-sized appetizers like cocktail shrimp, cured meats, an assortment of cheeses, and fruits. This enables your guests to taste a variety of foods, while sipping on wine. Since a wine tasting party is similar to a cocktail party, the key is to provide guests with foods that are easy to eat while socializing.
A fun game to play during a wine tasting party is a blind tasting – each guest is blind-folded while tasting different wines, and asked to guess what type of varietal it is. To differentiate between the Red and White Wines, you can add a Burgundy Balloon or Ivory Balloon to each bottle. The winner (who guesses all the wine types correctly) can win a prize, like a gift basket filled with wine and other delectable goodies.
Leave your guests with a delightful memory of your wine tasting party by giving them a small gift as they leave. As party favors, a useful and affordable gift to provide the party guests are wine bottle stoppers.
