If you know me, you know that I’m a total wine-o who loves to wine taste! But as a busy mom with two jobs, millions of responsibilities, and a savings plan, ain’t nobody got the time, money, or the babysitting resources to wine taste these days! So I thought, how can I bring the wine tasting experience to you without having to leave your couch! So I created these wine tasting party printables, joined a great wine subscription, and invited my friends and family over for a wine tasting party!

Meet my wine partner in crime
If you’re thinking of throwing a wine party just like me, I’m going to give you all the essentials you’ll need. First, meet my wine partner in crime, Winc…
Winc is a wine subscription box that makes trying new wines easy and fun! First, you answer six questions on their app or online to help them assess your unique tastes. Then they send you wines specifically chosen to match your palate. After you drink your wine, you rate each bottle to help give you the best wine-experience moving forward. Then the process starts all over again each month. And like I said, you don’t even have to leave your couch!
That’s why when the folks at Winc wanted to partner with me to help me create the perfect wine-tasting party, I obvee said, “wine not?”
And now YOU are cordially invited to the wine tasting party…
Wine Tasting Party Essentials
We checked the boxes of all the MUST HAVE items for a wine party. Firstly, we covered all the wine bottles from our Winc Box, with these beautiful wine tasting bottle covers:
And set up the table with all the food, drinks, wine signs, and banners.
Wine party food
What goes better with wine than cheese? Therefore, we had to serve an amazing charcuterie board! It turned out better than I could have ever imagined! Additionally, who doesn’t love to say charcuterie?
And because this is such a pinterest-searched question, included below is my list for the perfect charcuterie plate that I hope will help you throw the perfect wine tasting party!
THE PERFECT CHEESE AND MEAT PLATE NECESSITIES:
3-4 Cheeses (We chose brie, havarti, and gouda)
2-3 Meats (We grabbed an assorted tray of salami, pastrami, and prosciutto)
Assorted crackers, bread, and bread sticks
A mix of fresh and dried Fruits (We included dried persimmons, dried apricots, fresh grapes, blueberries, and raspberries)
Olives and artichoke hearts
Mixed nuts (We included walnuts and Marcona Almonds – my new fav snack!)
Spreads (hummus and spinach dip)
Become a wine expert
It wouldn’t be a wine tasting party without a way to rate each wine, as if we were all experts, right? Therefore, we used these wine tasting cards to see how the wines stacked up against each other. Given the selection from Winc, it was so hard to choose!
Needless to say, we really go into it. The cards allow you to score on appearance, aroma, taste, and finish. We filled in our numbers, even though half of us didn’t really know what any of that meant. 😉
So which wine won, you ask? Well, I’ll let you get your own box of Winc to decide! But as you know, beauty (and a good tasting wine) really is in the eye of the beholder!
A Family Affair
Thanks to the ability to wine taste at home with Winc, we were able to have a really relaxed time while the kids played outside.
And the kids enjoyed the charcuterie plate just as much – if not more – than the adults!
Cheers to good wine, friends, and memories!
Thanks to Winc for helping us plan the most fun wine tasting party. I hope it inspires all of you to plan your own party. No wine bus, babysitters, or overly-priced wineries needed!
Make sure to send all your guests home with a fabulous favor with these favor tags attached!
I love the idea of attaching them to a wine or champagne bottle to take with them. But here are a few other ideas for wine party favors!
And guys, if anyone asks, I’m drinking all this wine for corks for a Pinterest project 😉
