Hosting a Wine Flight

gridder | Mar 18, 2007 01:55 PM

I am wanting to host a wine flight for a church auction item (probably Pinots because I love them) but need help with some of the logistics. First, how much wine should I plan per person? (i.e. is this going to make me bankrupt?) Does 2 oz of 4 wines seem right, plus an extra bottle or so of each to have a full glass of after the tasting? I think we will have a maximum of 6 people. . .Also, what about food? I know if we are "serious" we shouldn't serve food with the wines, but my guess is most of these people will be total novices (as opposed to partial novices, like we are) so I think they might be expecting food during the tasting. Finally, assuming we save food for afterwards, do three savory and one sweet appetizer-type thing seem like enough? I am trying to avoid doing a wine meal, per se.
Thanks, any help you can give is appreciated!
