A wine tasting party is something new and fun for you, your friends and family to enjoy together. The best part is you can host your own! You can start by merely pairing wines with specific cheeses, or branch out and try verticle or horizontal wine tastings. Read on to find out more…
Begin your wine party planning by deciding what type of tasting you would like to host…
Vertical wine tastings: generally about surveying a series of wines which are based on vintage years. Its a nifty way of experiencing how unique and different every year can be in the world of wine.
Horizontal wine tastings: conducted by focusing on a wine varietal from a single year, but from multiple producers.
Something fun! Wine from the old world vs wine from the new world, comparing a grape varietal grown in the “Old World” (i.e. Europe – France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal) with the same varietal grown in the “New World” (i.e. North America, South America, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia).
Wine & cheese pairing party: have each couple bring a wine and cheese pairing best pairing wins!
Now all there is to do is plan a date, create a guest list, choose your wines and enjoy!
