Wine Tasting Engagement Party

Honor the oenophiles and have each guest bring a bottle of wine to share for the party. You can even provide the wine for the party and host a swap, where each person takes home someone else’s favorite vino. Have plenty of wineglasses on hand (at least enough to have a red and white for each guest), along with ample food options for pairing. Fill out the table with a spread of great cheeses (fresh, aged, soft and hard) and baguettes. A few extras: an olive bar, hummus and pita bread, and even grapes, strawberries and sliced apples. Go the extra mile and hire a sommelier to guide the tasting, or rent out the back room of a local wine bar or winery for a private tasting session.
