Wine Tasting Date Night At Home
You will be awakening all of your senses with this date night idea.
Here you’ll find all you need to know to make this wine tasting date night a special one that you both will always remember.
What Do You Need For A Wine Tasting Date Night At Home?
- 3 to 5 bottles of wine – We have always found it preferable to stick to one type of wine. Like all red or all white. This way the wines are similar making it more enjoyable to compare them to one another.
- Snacks (crackers, cheese, meats, or fruit)
- Wine glasses – You can have one wine glass for each of the wines you are tasting, or one wine glass each.
If you choose to have one wine glass each just rinse and dry it in between pouring each tasting.
- Paper and pens (to keep notes about what you notice about each of the wines)
- Printable at home wine tasting kit (included at the bottom of this post for free)
Wine Tasting At Home For Two
Get ready to – SEE, SWIRL, SMELL, SIP, & SAVOR the night away!
There are two different options for how to do this wine date night.
Option #1 – Wine Tasting With Visible Labels
If you want to see the wine bottle labels as you do the tasting, you can use the included printable of “Wine Bottle Tags”.
Simply print out the tags and place one tag on each of the wine bottles that you are using. Each tag is numbered making it easy to keep track of the wine.
Option #2 – Blind Wine Tasting
If you want to do a blind wine tasting (our fave) where you don’t see the label of the wine you are tasting – use the included printable “Wine Label Covers”. Tape each cover marked with a number around the wine bottle to keep the original wine label a mystery.
After you are done with your tasting, remove the wine label covers to reveal which wines on your tasting sheet you loved the most.
Wine Tasting Date Night DIY
Wine Tasting Instructions:
Pour a little wine from one of the bottles into your wine glass.
SEE – Look at the wine from top to bottom in the glass. Hold the wine up to the light as you roll the wine toward the edges of the glass. Observe what the wine looks like in the glass. What color is the wine? Is it dark, cloudy, or clear?
SWIRL – Swirl the wine three or four times to aerate the wine and release the aromas. This will make the wine easier for you to smell and taste.
SMELL – After swirling, smell the wine by sticking your nose into the glass and breathing in deeply. Close your eyes as you do so and notice all of the aromas.
SIP – Take a sip of wine and swoosh it throughout your mouth. By swooshing it throughout your mouth you will be able to taste more of the wine. Allow the wine to sit in your mouth for a moment before you swallow so that you can fully absorb all of its flavors.
SAVOR – As you savor the wine, do you notice if it is bitter, sour, or sweet? What is the texture? What flavors do you taste? Do you like it and want to take another sip?
Wine Tasting Overall Score
SCORE – After you see, swirl, smell, sip, and savor the wine, it’s time to give the wine an overall score. Write down your overall score for the wine on your scorecard and make any notes about it that you want to remember.
The scorecard is included in the free printable. You will rate each wine that you taste on the printable scorecard.
After you have finished with one wine, rinse out your glass, dry it, have a little snack, then move on to the next bottle.
