How to Host a Wine Night

red wine, white wine

Swap Catch Phrase and Scrabble for cabernet and syrah: Host a wine-focused gathering with friends and family. We have ideas for food, bottles to try, and tasting tips, too.

At the Door

Kick off the evening without risking palate fatigue by greeting your guests with a refreshing sparkling wine cocktail. Before they arrive, set up cheese, charcuterie, and Publix party appetizers for a variety of wine-friendly nibbles.

Variety, Variety

Choose one grape variety and pour three to four different wines, each from a different region around the world. This tasting flight creates a picture of how a single grape’s taste changes based on the place it’s grown. (Find tips on how to host a wine tasting party.)

The Wide World of Wine

Focus on a single wine region—Napa Valley, California; Marlborough, New Zealand; Burgundy, France; or Barossa Valley, Australia—and select three to four varieties from that region to get a taste of place.

Prefer to spread the wine cost among friends? Let your guests know the evening’s theme and encourage them to bring one to two bottles of wine for the evening.

(Wine) Love is Blind

Add some mystery and friendly competition by incorporating a blind tasting. Cover each bottle with a paper bag or tea towel. Then, start the evening by tasting each wine together. Follow the five S’s—see, swirl, sniff, sip, spit & savor—and your guests can choose their favorite to fill their glasses with later in the evening.

Get Sensory

A single wine—made from grapes aged in oak—contains a multitude of flavors. Expand your tasting note library by tasting the core varieties alongside the flavors found inside the glass.

  • Sauvignon blanc: lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, green grass
  • Chardonnay: juicy peach, vanilla, ground nutmeg
  • Pinot noir: fresh rose petal or potpourri, fresh cherries, earth
  • Cabernet sauvignon: black pepper, blackberries, cinnamon stick
  • Zinfandel: blackberry or boysenberry jam, black pepper, cigar box, black licorice

Serving Tips

  • Wondering how much wine? Each bottle contains about ten 2.5-ounce taste pours, so one bottle serves ten guests in a tasting. But you’ll certainly want extra for guests to revisit later in the evening.
  • Don’t forget to hydrate: Infuse water with mint, cucumber, or lemon for palate cleansing between sips and to keep your guests hydrated through the evening.
  • Place a few opaque vessels on the table to use as cuspidors—more casually known as spittoons or dump buckets—for guests who might not finish every sip.
  • The gathering may be light and relaxing, but some wine lovers love to discover and learn. Keep a few copies of tasting grids and guides on hand, along with notepads and pens for note-taking throughout the evening. Then, “sip back” and relax.
