Tips and recs on how to host a wine tasting?

thefringe | Apr 4, 2005 01:58 PM

I am interested in gathering a group of perhaps 12-15 people and hosting a wine tasting party. Most of the guests would be novice to intermediate wine aficionados. The idea is to pick a consistent theme with each wine (by region? by varietal? by vineyard?) and pair each bottle with a complementary appetizer/tasting. I'd like to be able to taste both whites and reds, and possibly even sparklers and dessert wines as well. Any suggestions on how to organize such a gathering and how to pick and order the wines? Any recipe ideas? Thanks!
