Featured in PRiME, a Magazine for Women in Their Prime, is my latest article on Hosting a Blind Wine Tasting at Home. You can find it at: 8 Tips for Hosting . Basically, this will give you tips for how to set up such a tasting. You can make the event entertaining for novices and experienced wine drinkers alike.
Here is an example on a wine tasting onboard the Oceania Riviera cruise ship - which is known for their specialty theme tastings. We're onboard this week on our way to Barcelona, Spain.
Some of the suggested "themes" for your event could include:
ABC’s of Anything But Chardonnay – alternative white wines you will love - see article below.
The Wines of Napa Valley – Diverse Varietals and Blends
Tuscany Wines – Which Wine Pairs Best with Pizza?
Cabernet Sauvignon –Multiple Wine Regions, Multiple Styles. Pick Your #1
Rate the Wines of Texas….(or Oregon, Washington, Virginia, New York, Michigan)
If you go to the story, you will also be able to download a "Guess Sheet" to use for the tasting.
It is fun to include a Big "Reveal" of each wine at the end of the evening and award a prize.
