Wine Party Covered In Five
Show them how it’s done this December with our crisp wine party guide containing recommended wines, cheeses, wine glasses, crystal glasses et al. Yeah, we’ve got you covered, this festive month.
Year-end parties will always be a thing – it’s not just an excuse to revel but to pause, reconnect and reminisce a year that for most is inevitably chequered with good friends over even better wine. And if you’re gonna do it often enough across December, why not do it proper. As you open your doors and wine collection to family and friends for a good ol’ wine party. And to make it something actually special, isn’t a spur of the moment event. It takes some planning, attention to detail and all the elements in place so that nothing get in the way of you and your party gang e at its best. To start with, you’ve got to roll out wines that will appeal to all palates and pour them in wine glasses that’ll make them taste the way they should.
And if you’re planning on opening that full bodied red wine you’ve been saving up, then take things up a notch with a crystal decanter that will make the shy bottled red open up like a champ. Please don’t forget that invisible but significant element of service temperature. Do have an ice bucket handy in the living room to keep the wines well cooled throughout the shindig and be mindful of serving temperatures – 10 to 12 degrees for the white and sparkling and 15 to 17 degrees for the reds. Finally, who doesn’t love some cheese to match with the wine – go on, throw in the ‘uber’ element with a tasty cheese platter to pair with wines. We’re listing it all down for you to get it started.
