Make a wine tasting more fun by wrapping bottles in linen napkins. Provide a list of the wines under wraps and have guests sip and match them to displayed descriptions.
- Keep things organized and add a graphic element by stenciling numbers onto small gift or shipping tags using a black felt-tip pen.
- Line up the wine bottles and hang tags in sequence.
- Repeat the stenciling process on card stock or menu cards and line these up in front of each numbered bottle. Provide pens for guests to write down their guesses.
A tasting can be intimidating. Write descriptions using adjectives that everyone will understand. If you need guidance, it’s easy to find descriptions of most wines online.
All guests participating in the tasting should have their own wine lists to choose from. This allows them to sip and read the descriptions at their leisure. Write or print out the list of wines on card stock or menu cards.
“Keep the tasting fun and lighthearted. Add a bit of humor to your wine descriptions.”
