A great way to get together with friends and families is by hosting a wine tasting party, whether if it’s a simple vertical or horizontal tasting or pairing the wine with a few specific cheeses, it will make the party an intriguing one indeed. So, if you decide to host a wine tasting party, then these are some of the tips you need to follow. Remember, wine tasting party is about having a great time with your people and not about getting drunk.

  • Make a Guest List – You need to check the amount of people you would want to invite to your party. Once you make your list, send an invitation a week or 2 in advance. This will give you enough time to get all the things sorted without worrying to do anything at the last moment.
  • Design a Tasting Card –A tasting card is all about jotting down the wines information. Some of the information includes –taste description, origin of the country and the year. Make sure each of your guests has it with them that will help them to write down their preferred information such as appearance, flavor, aromas etc.
  • Keeping it Casual – If you want the event to be a bit on the casual side, then provide them with a piece of pen and paper to write down their own notes. You can ask your guest to give ratings on the wine based on the favorite and the least to their taste buds.
  • Challenge yourself and others – To make the party a bit more challenging yet exciting, try blind tasting experience. All you need is a blind fold to be put on the contestant’s eyes and ask them to guess the type of wine and its features such as acidity, flavors and aromas.
