Are you are planning to host a wine tasting party and worried that you and your guests may not have enough knowledge of the different types and brands of wines? There is no need to lose any sleep over it because you don’t have to be a wine connoisseur to host a wine tasting party. In fact, you can turn your lack of expertise into an advantage by turning the event into a fun and educational party that will leave lasting memories.

Before drawing the plan, you should decide whether you want to make “wine tasting” the star of the show or just the “supporting act”. If it is the former, then selection of the wines should take precedence over the selection of food. If it is the latter, then it should be vice versa. In both cases, you will need an assortment of wines.
The next step is to select a style or theme for the party. It could be anything you like, such as a “California Wine Tasting Party” or “Australian Wine Tasting Party”. If wine tasting is not the main event and just the sideshow, then select your theme accordingly.
Once you’ve got your theme, choose the wines that will go best with the theme. Don’t worry if you know practically nothing about wines. Pick up a wine like a wine connoisseur and say to yourself, “This is my favorite wine; I wonder what it tastes like”. When choosing wine, one thing you must make sure is that the wine and food complement one another. Otherwise, the event will likely end in failure.

Now decide how many guests you want to invite. If it is a small number, you can seat everyone around a table to create an intimate environment where everyone can taste the wine together and share their experience. If the number is large, then you can have a cocktail party in a large room or hall and set up a number of wine stations. Guests will move from one station to another in a predetermined order, tasting the wine served at each station.
When it comes to wine tasting, style is king. Serve a good wine in a cheap looking wine glass and see how it defeats the entire purpose. Therefore, nothing less than the best wine glasses will do. A wine glass should be such that each drop of wine that flows out of it should feel like a drop of magic. Crystal Imagery, Inc. creates such beautiful glassware. The company is world famous for its exquisitely beautiful and elegant sand-carved wine glasses with custom designs that include monograms and artistic panels.
So, think like a wine connoisseur and get Crystal Imagery wine glasses for your wine-tasting event. The secret of success is to stop wishing and start doing. So go ahead and indulge yourself. It could be a life changing event for both you and your guests.
