If you plan on hosting a wine tasting party, then you will see that it will be a lot of fun. Also, it will also be able to get you and your friends learn more about wine and even improve your palate about wine. It is also a great chance for you to find out about new wines.
So, here are some tips on how to host a wine tasting party in order for you to ensure its success and let you and your guests have a lot of fun.
The first step is of course to invite your guests. About 8 to 12 people are enough for a wine tasting party. These numbers are large enough for promoting spontaneous interaction, and it is also small enough for you to easily manage.
You can invite your guests through telephone or through email. You’ll be glad to know that there are quite a lot of e-card websites that will be able to provide you with great invitations through emails.
The second step is to choose the wine. For most people, this is the best step in organizing a wine tasting party. Here, you will choose what kind of wine you will offer your guests to taste. However, when you walk in to the wine store, you may get overwhelmed or mesmerized by the amount of wine you need to choose from. There are simply a lot of wines to choose from.
To make it easier for you to choose from the different wines available, you might want to consider organizing a themed wine tasting party. You can choose a variety of wines in terms of price, you can choose from one winery but with different vintages, and you can even choose different types of wines like the big eight wines. There are quite a lot of possibilities so don’t be afraid to be creative.
Food is another thing you need to consider. You have to remember that a party is never really a party without any food. Before you serve dinner to your guests, you might want to consider waiting up until the wine tasting is over. You have to remember that food affects the way the wine tastes. If you must, you might want to offer your guests cheese or unsalted crackers as well as room temperature water on the process of tasting the wine.
Always remember that in wine tasting parties, you must limit pours to two ounces, which is about two inches in a normal sized wine glass.
Remember these tips and you can be sure that you will be able to organize a successful wine tasting party.
