Several suggestions are made to make a wine tasting club become a success. Ideally, a wine tasting club should at least have 12 members to be able to garner the right to be called as an existing club. The maximum number of members can reach until 25 and sometimes 30. But then again, it is most appropriate that a club should only have limited members for it to work in a more organized and intimate manner. If you have established a club that can already stand on its own, then the club can be expanded but until that day comes, settle with just a couple and make it work.
For your club to be recognized by the society, ask your friends to help you organize a party for tasting wines. With this, people can know, especially those who share the same passion of wine as you do will have an idea that your club is open for public acknowledgement.
Invitations should be sent out. Make sure that you send invitations to those who are most capable of being a member of your club. Always try to emphasize that it is not just an ordinary club but something that one can benefit from. It should be a club based on camaraderie and educative activities. Never let these people feel intimidated but welcomed.
On the night of your party, see to it that invited people enjoy the event. And at a moment, you can set out the important guidelines to be able to qualify in the club. You can also emphasize or ask suggestions for the name of the club. You can decide on meeting dates, assignments for hosting and theme for the next tasting of wine. You have to ask the group about the foods that will be served. Assign a secretary to note down all important bullets that you have emphasized like events and who are the people within your group that are in-charge of the part. Consider the fact of choosing the wine that should be purchased.
In order to make your club unique, include interests of not only yours but also of your members. Through this, you are expected to share things which can capture each other’s interest. Activities that captivate each other’s interest will promote a member’s stay in the club and will have no regrets for joining.
Wine and food must also stand out above ideas. Entertainment must also be set so that people will not get bored with how things are working inside the club. Create menus that are approved by everybody and not just by one. You can also assign someone else or group of 3’s to take care of the menu. Food that will be served should complement the wine in order to appreciate the ambiance of the environment more.
Glasses should also have a unique trademark that shouts your mark of organization alone. It should stand out from other wine tasting orgs. Glasses can be personalized bearing the mark of the organization in order to separate one apart from the other. Every member must have a different identity so that the club can termed as one-of-a-kind. Treat your members as wine. Do not cut off important stuff just because it doesn’t suit you.
Always consider your members because they make out the entire club. Make your wine tasting experience a blast.
