Do you feel like you need a change in your life? Do you feel like you and your friends need to attend more refined, sophisticated events rather than eating at the same restaurant every week? Why not organize a wine tasting at your place for your closest friends? This is your opportunity to give an extraordinary experience to yourself as well as your friends.
Try to be creative
Being creative when organizing a party is not that difficult. All you have to do is organize it in a way that the guests will have a good time. You could go for a themed wine tasting party. As the host, you could pick a theme or you could discuss with your guests beforehand to decide a theme which everyone likes. It makes it easier for the host to organize his or her event according to one particular theme.
Be a hospitable host
As the host, it is your responsibility to make sure that everything runs smoothly. You have to be aware of the number of wine bottles you need according to the number of guests and the wines that you are buying according to your theme. For instance, if your guests agreed on tasting Australian types you need to buy ones such as Penfolds St Henri Shiraz. If the guests are expecting vintage types of alcohol you need to make your purchases accordingly. Further, do not forget to buy food items and certain snacks that would go with the types of alcohol you are getting.
On the day of the event
You could start by setting the table and arranging the wine from the lighter ones to the darker ones. Since the darker ones tend to be heavy the guests could go from the lighter wines to the darker in order. Be it the Penfolds St Henri Shiraz or any other wine you purchased for your guests make sure there are two bottles of each wine. One bottle could be offered for tasting and the other bottle could be served for drinking. Have the snacks such as breadsticks, chocolate, pistachios etc ready on the table. Once every one is present the host could start the event by observing, smelling and tasting the wine.
A wine throwing party would be enjoyable if the number is little. This is why you should invite only your closest friends to such an event. When tasting the wine make sure that each person tastes only 4-5 samples because consuming excessive number of samples does not really help with the tasting. Be a cordial host and tend to the needs of your guest. By keeping the number of guests limited you get the chance of attending to your guests easily.
