Last week I was invited to a friend’s home for a wine tasting party. Having never done one before I was unsure of what to expect. I worried that it might be another night of sitting around a living room listening to someone selling product… and feeling obligated to buy so that I could leave with a clear conscience…. My concerns couldn’t be further from the truth.
From the moment I walked into the door I was greeted by Sam, the sommelier. There was a table full of beautiful food – cheeses, meats, bread, dips, sushi, vegetables and chips. And the dining table was set up for eight people to enjoy a variety of sampling wines.
We went through five wine tastings and food pairings. Some white, some red. We learned why each wine went so well with the selected food pairings. We learned about regions, varietals and some fun wine trivia facts. I learned so much that evening. And I feel more confident to be able to make wine recommendations in the future.
It was an evening of the girls getting together. We laughed a lot and learned a lot. It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this event the next time you have your friends over.Client Reviews
