Fun wine tasting game ...

Zuccarino wine tasting game...

a different way of tasting wine... take your complete notes for several bottles and do not put what the wine is or where it's from on paper...mark each bottle with a number have the master set of TN's placed in a envelope sealed with the corresponding bottle number on it... next invite your tasters to start tasting the wines with the wine tasting notes you provided them with ... have them taste the wine and match the tasting notes, as well as take their own... this is where the fun comes in... they then number each note with the bottle number that they think matches the notes...

when you are done and everyone has the wines matched up with your notes as well as theirs... open the sealed envelope disclose the notes you have with the number corresponding appropriate bottle and place them next to the bottle... see how many tasters match your original tasting notes...have two of the same wines in the running ... see if they both get matched with the same notes... it's a humbling experience... then let the conversation flow...be prepared to have your notes ripped apart all in good fun...

make sure they give a numeric score to the wines as well this adds a bit more to the complexity of the tasting ...

every time I have done this the passion and excitement seems to be heightened with great conversations about wine for many hours....enjoy...

Cheers !!!

Wow that sounds like a great idea...and good for knocking the self proclaimed "wine experts" down a peg or two to the level of us wine admiring amateurs! :laugh:
