If you’re someone who gets nervous when it comes to hosting a party or thinking about pairings, you’ll love this post. Throwing a wine pairing party is the most fool-proof ways to entertain and enjoy yourself while doing it.
Steal the menu!
First, look up your favorite wineries website. Simple, right? See their pairings and what wine’s their winemaker recommends and what they’re pairing it with. You can usually find these gems on the homepage or within a few clicks in the menu.
Translate the menu into the decor!
Thinking Chardonnay? A bright citrusy, buttery chardonnay deserves a table that is equally as bright and cheery. Deep reds? Try a rustic wooden table setting with wooden slices and deep red runners.
Cheese it up!
For appetizers, serve a cheese platter with fruit, nuts, crackers and different cheeses. Your local grocer can usually recommend the best varieties at the time.
