Step 1: Be a host and wine connoisseur.
Get the perfect pour with the Wine Tasting Set. Taste the terroir nuances of the rolling valleys of Rioja and Navarra, Spain.
Chardonnay 10: Fresh | Delicate | Elegant
Reserva 56: Rich | Full-Bodied | Smoked
Red Blend 19: Smooth | Rounded | Dry
Rosé 29: Crisp | Bright | Light
Step 2: Celebrate your wine with a Decanter.
Give every guest a breath of fresh air in a glass. Open up a waterfall of aromas in every bottle; the decanter's sleek pyramid-shaped silhouette, small interior triangle, and distinctive side openings aerate the wine so flavors can sing.
Speaking of singing, no soiree is complete without a tailored playlist: "Meet us at the Hotel Bar".
Step 3: Cheese, tapas, charcuterie, and hors d'œuvres galore!
Just like any get together needs music, you can’t throw a party without small bites. Present your cocktail hour in style with this slate, natural cut charcuterie board.
Step 4: Make it a Game Night
We rounded up 3 unique wine drinking activities. So call over a few friends and escape the ordinary without ever leaving your home. (Players needed: 2-15+)
House Rules Wine Drinking Game
Grab a pen and paper and create a list of house rules once your guests arrive. Every half hour, announce a new rule. The rules can be as silly or complicated as you like. When someone catches you not following a rule, take a sip.
Some examples of rules to implement are no smiling while laughing, first one to go to the bathroom has to drink, and put a dollar on the table every time you curse. Be creative, and make the rules more difficult as the night goes on.
Wine Checkers Drinking Game
It’s just like regular checkers, but with wine. Same rules apply, except that every time you lose a piece, you have to take a sip of wine. To win or be “kinged,” you have to first finish your remaining glass of wine. Grab a checkers board or make one yourself with a sharpie and a piece of cardboard or paper.
What you’ll need:
- 24 plastic shot glasses
- A bottle of red wine
- A bottle of white wine
- A checkerboard
