A wine blind tasting party can be a stand up with finger food event or a more formal sit down to dinner.

Getting The Party Started
What You will Need Wine Glasses: Good wine glasses are a must. The right wine glass will enhance those aromas, textures and flavours from the wine.Wine: A selection of 4-6 wines that have common theme. Having a theme is much more educational and fun. Examples could be one country, region, grape variety or wine maker. Food: Pairing wine with good cheese, cold meats and plain crackers will be used to clean the palate before your guests move to the next wine.
Spittoon: Use a spittoon or a small bucket where people can pour out the rest of their wines or the wine they do not enjoy.
Remember, the wine tasting isn’t about getting drunk, it’s about tasting.
Decanter: A good wine should always be aerated now days we have so many options. We recommend AerDeVino a portable USB electric wine aerator decanter that adds instant aeration to enrich your wine experience with red , white and rose wine. We don’t want to keep our guests waiting for the next bottle to taste. Music: You can’t have a party without music Blindfold: This is just another fun way to see how your guests really know there wines. Notepaper: allow each guest to a make notes and with the games you could give out a prize for those with the most correct guesses.
