So you are having a party at home and the theme is wine. You want to make a good selection of wines that will cater to everyone’s taste but are confused? Look no further. Here are 5 simple tips to keep in mind that ensure a set of delighted guests, all high on their love for wine!


Set a budget

It’s important to have a budget otherwise you could easily get carried away with your wine selection. Look for simple, tasty wines that are both readily available and fit your budget.


Cater to a wide taste

Some people only drink white wine and some only drink red wine.  Some people prefer fruity over dry wines. So it's important to have one of each. At the same time, it’s important to remember that you can’t cater to each and every individual taste. So keep the selection simple yet enjoyable.


Sample it

Whatever wine you choose for a party, sample it before you buy it in bulk. As the host, you must have enough knowledge about the wine you are serving. It also makes for a good conversation starter with your guests.


Be selective about your precious wines

Not everyone can appreciate every wine. A novice may not appreciate an aged Pinot Noir with gamey or leatherly aromas; or an aged petroly Reisling. Keep these precious wines for a selective set of guests who know such wines and have the palate for it. Serve easy drinking and simple wines at big parties.


Who doesn’t like a sale!

Shop around for sales that offer good wines at good discounts. Don’t compromise on the quality of wines though; always balance the trade off.

 

And Lastly,

Wine Party!

 

Now all there's left to do is pour away and enjoy your weekend! Happy Wine-ing!
