DIY Wine Tasting


Wedding planning has been a little stressful at times but it's also been a lot fun!! I think one of the funnest things we've done so far was a Wine Tasting Night!!
We asked all of our friends/family for cheap wine recommendations (cheap meaning around/under $10). We received a list of about 25 wines, but we knew we couldn't sample 25 wines!! We decided to use the Vivino Wine App to help us narrow down the recommendations. 

We came up with the following ten wines for our wine tasting night:
Carnivor (Cabernet Sauvignon)
Fall Creek (Cabernet Sauvignon)
Ravage (Cabernet Sauvignon)
Frontera (Cabernet Sauvignon)
Becker (Cabernet Sauvignon)
Menage et Trois (Red Blend)
Apothic (Red Blend)
Woodbridge (Red Blend)
19 Crimes (Red Blend)
14 Hands (Red Blend)

For the setup: We bought some burlap wine bags on Amazon for about $15 (link here). I used my lovely cricut to add some numbers to the bags, but you could just get iron on numbers from the craft store. I also made some scoring cards, which you can download here for free. 


How it works: Everyone gets a scoring card and a marker/pen. As the wines are being sampled, everyone ranks the wine on a 1 to 5 scale (5 meaning they loved it). We then asked everyone to pick their top wines, tallied the results, and the winning wine will be served at our wedding!! 
We had so much doing this!! It was such a relaxing evening just talking with family and sampling wine...can't go wrong with that!! So...which wine had the most votes??  I guess you'll just have to wait and see at the wedding...it's just 31 days away!!
