Last Saturday, my most fabulous friend, Sandra hosted a Guess The Wine Party. I have been so interested in these and was even more excited to go! If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love wine. White wine mostly. I am not a snob when it comes to wine. I do have my favorites. Like Cooper’s Hawk (which I am a loyal club member thanks to my GW) and Ecco Domani and Kendall Jackson and Robert Mondavi and the list goes on and on…. With that said, what I really enjoyed was actually NOT knowing what I was sampling.
Each bottle was slipped into a burlap wine sack that covered the labels obviously. We were given what types of wine that were on the table but had to decide what number went with which wine! I learned that with this blind taste testing I actually did better guessing the wine by smell rather than taste. If I wasn’t real sure, the taste would seal the deal. There were two bottle for the Chenin Blanc and the Reisling. I nailed the first five! Perfect score! Then I realized I hadn’t written down the extra two. Dang it! The pressure was on and I should’ve went with my gut. I missed the last two. The Chenin Blanc and the Reisling threw me off. Oh, well! It was FUN FUN FUN!
We have decided to do a Red Wine Night at my house next month. I’ll keep you posted on how we do on that one!
