Hi there. This is my first post to the messageboard. I came across this site a few weeks ago and have been reading with interest. It amazes me the amount of stuff out there that I don't know about, but want to learn!
Which leads me to...I'm hosting my first ever wine tasting and dinner party this weekend. Learning about wines is a plus (I'm a novice wine drinker, as are the friends that I've invited), but I'm most interested in making sure everyone has fun. I did some general research on the web about hosting wine parties and decided to ask guests to bring in relatively inexpensive CA wines to compare against, and will cover the labels while we taste and discuss. I'm so excited!
Does anyone have suggestions and tips to share? What made your wine party successful? I'm interested in knowing which are the wines to get, what types of foods to serve with it, and just general ideas on ensuring everyone has a good time.
I appreciate any help! Thanks in advance!
