Below are three different ways to approach conducting your own wine tasting, but remember that a key ingredient for any wine tasting is to have fun. Enjoy!

GENERAL TASTING
(Just for Fun)
  • Choose four to six wine types
  • Stay with well-known varietals. (ex: Chardonnay, Syrah, Rieslings)
  • Price range between $10 - $15
  • Provide guests with minimal information on wines
  • Fun way to get to discover new tastes

COMPARATIVE TASTING
(The Fun Yet Educational)
  • Pick a Theme - All Minnesota Wines, All Riesling, All $15, etc.
  • Each guest provides a wine and information on the wine they brought
  • Conduct a Blind Tasting (ie - numbered brown bags)
  • Tasting Cards to judge the wine (sight, smell & taste)

VERTICAL TASTING
(For Serious Wine Connoisseurs)
  • Same wine type (Riesling), same winery, different vintages
  • Proper glassware (glass style according to wine selected)
  • Conduct a Blind Tasting (ie - numbered brown bags)
  • Tasting Cards to judge the wine (sight, smell & taste)
