Wine Tasting Party with a Twist

Mar 7, 2016 | Girls Night In - What to Do, Girls Night In - What to Drink, Staying In

*We want you to enjoy girls night. If you drink, please do so responsibly. No one wants to be "that girl."*

Ideas for Hosting a Girls Night Wine Tasting Party

Now, it doesn’t have to be a fancy wine-tasting party. Instead, go buy or order a bunch of cheapish bottles and sit around with your girlfriends trying each one.

Because red and white wine are so different, we recommend have a white wine night and a red wine night. This way, the vast difference in flavors won’t cloud your judgment when it comes time to talk about which wine is your favorite.

Girls Night Ideas - White Wine Tasting Party

For the white wine night, you should drink the wine in order of dryness to sweetness. We recommend the following kinds, in this order:

  1. Dry Riesling
  2. Pinot Grigio
  3. Sauvignon Blanc
  4. Chenin Blanc
  5. Viognier
  6. Chardonnay

For red wine night, see the drinking order we recommend below:

  1. French Malbec
  2. Chianti
  3. American Merlot
  4. Shiraz
  5. Zinfandel 
  6. Port

Here’s a twist:

If you want to take these girls night tastings one step further, put the bottles in brown paper bags and draw numbers on each bag. We know it sounds crazy, but this will make it a “blind” tasting. 

By doing this, you will ensure that everyone gives unbiased comments about the wine because they won’t know which one they are actually drinking.

Added bonus:

Now you don’t have to listen to Karen talk about when she studied abroad in Rome and how she drank Chianti every night. Every night Karen? Really, For 6 Months? I’m sure there really was a guy named Luigi who proposed to you in Venice.Anyway, if you don’t want to go to the store to pick up these wines, you can always order them from Wine.com

Wine.com has a huge selection and ships the wine right to your door throughout the majority of the United States.
