Wine Tasting Games

Wine tasting games take all the snobbishness out of drinking wine, and put the emphasis back where it should be--on the enjoyment. Plus, wine tasting games teach while they entertain. I've played a great game called Winerd (Wine Nerd, get it?) that tested us partially on our knowledge, and partially on our skill.

Wine tasting games like this aren't just about book knowledge. They involve your ability to taste, see, smell, and describe. Since tasting, seeing, and smelling are at the heart of wine appreciation, I think these skills are just as important as knowing which type of grape grows in which part of France.

Wine Tasting Games as Wine Gifts

Wine gifts are just about the most versatile gifts you could give. Wine is a perfect gift for everyone from a business acquaintance to a dear friend, for occasions as diverse as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, and graduations. People who really love their wines will appreciate receiving a wine gift that is as unusual as it is enjoyable, like a wine tasting game.

Frankly, it's gotten to the point where almost every gift I give has something to do with wine. I've given away bottles of champagne wrapped in velvet wine bags. I've given wine picnic backpacks and neoprene wine carriers. I find these gifts very convenient to buy, and universally appreciated.
