Wine tasting parties are often a little intimidating for those who have never had the chance to partake before. Therefore, why not gather some friends together and have a non intimidating wine tasting party. This will naturally require numerous various bottles of wine for the tasting, water for cleansing the palette and cheese for those who would rather snack.
For your informal wine tasting party, there is no need to dig out the crystal, as you and your friends can just as easily find yourselves on the back deck with your fill in good quality plastic party wine glasses. You might find that it doesn't take much wine tasting for the party to get into full swing. It is not unusual for the initial consumption of wine tasting to surprise many beginners. While you’re not supposed to get tipsy or drunk, it happens to many their first time around.
Wine tasting parties can be as relaxed as you want them to be. You can throw together a nice set of munchies and watch your wine tasting eventually turn into an evening with valued friends and loved ones. Casual is the name of the game for beginners, as it can be taxing trying to master the art of wine tasting, your first time. There are many guides to the planning of such a party, but most of them are attempting to drill the rituals and the senses of tasting into your mind rather than encourage you to have a good time.
Grab a few party supplies, some plastic wine glasses, some colourful paper plates and your friends and just try to remain serious throughout the entire party (good luck). If everyone brings one bottle of wine to share with everyone else, couldn't you technically call that a wine tasting party?
