A fun girls-night-in option for summer is the popular wine tasting party. A wine tasting is a great opportunity to have some girl time, try new a wine and at the end of the night, you’ll know a little bit more about wine. Check out this guide to hosting a fab wine tasting party!

Party Supplies:
Wine Scorecard
Paper bags or construction paper
Wine glasses
Water pitcher
Light snacks

Pre-Event Preparation

Send out some cute invitations to your guests about a month before your party.  A cute idea is to ask your guests to bring two bottles of their favorite wine. One bottle is for the actual tasting and one will go in the gift basket. Once everyone votes, the first and second place winners get to split the lot of wine.

Day-Of-Event Prep

Make the party more interesting by hosting a mystery wine tasting and place each bottle of wine in a brown paper bag or cover the bottle with paper. You can make numbered tags or simply mark each bag with R (for red wine) or W (for white wine).  Also, make it easy for the novice wine guests with clear instructions.
