Plan a wine party


International and potentially interstate travel plans out the window for the year? Wanting to lay low a little bit, but still see your friends in the comfort of your own home?


Let’s face it, some of you might be a little bit bored at the moment; after all, it is winter, and life has been slowed down considerably by the Coronavirus pandemic.


If you want to get your friends together to talk about anything but coronavirus, why not host a wine party with your wine-loving friends?


The rules are simple:


  • Get everyone attending to bring a bottle of wine with them.

  • Now the wine has to be Australian, it has to be something that has a difference to it; that could be a different varietal, something from a small producer or something a bit obscure.

  • The wine MUST come with a story that is to be told at the dinner party. Any story, but there must be a memory or story attached to the wine.



Share the wines over a meal with your friends and tell the stories as you go.


Now if this makes you a little nervous because perhaps you feel like you don’t know that much about wine, that’s Ok too.


Take it as a challenge to learn something new. Head over to your local independent wine shop and ask them for some advice. They are sure to point you in the right direction to try something different and that in itself is an interesting story to tell at the dinner party.


And don't be afraid to try something new, the beauty of wine is in learning about different varietals and different tastes.


Hosting a wine dinner party is not only a fun way to bring your friends together for something a little different, but it will also give you a talking point on stories you may not have heard about your friends...


So, give it a try and let us know how you go! And possibly catch a cab or have a designated driver for this one (Safety first)


Happy entertaining.
