#1 - You Deserve an Adult Night
Feel like it's your kids' world and you're only living in it? Ah.. the days before responsibility! Sure, the responsibilities won't go away, but for one night, let yourself just be an adult with adult friends, adult conversations, and adult beverages!
#2 - Practice Your "Somm" Descriptions for Wine
Admit it... you watched the movie "Somm" while doing laundry last month, and you've been dying to describe a wine's aroma as “a freshly opened can of tennis balls” or “fresh cut garden hose.” This is your chance! There are no wrong answers… except “grapes”… that’s just dumb.
#3 - Try Something New
We all get stuck in a wine rut. Whether it’s California Cabernet, buttery Chardonnay, or sickeningly-sweet Moscato, we often stick to what we know we like. At a store, why spend your wine budget on a wine you don’t know? At a restaurant, why take a chance on a new varietal? At a tasting, you can try it all and maybe – just maybe – find the perfect wine to break you out of your comfort zone! Then get excited at the grocery story when you see that varietal on the shelves, or perhaps impress the wine steward at your favorite restaurant by requesting something unique!
#4 - Demonstrate Your Awesome Appetizer-Making Skills
Enough with the pizza, spaghetti, chicken nuggets, and burgers… show off your mad cooking skills with some creative appetizers! Time to make your famous spinach artichoke dip! Pull out the Crockpot and get to simmering your ever-popular meatballs! Spend a few extra minutes in the cheese aisle at the store… go crazy!
#5 - Look Hip & Trendy
You may not be going to the hottest clubs in town anymore, but you’re still cool… at least in your own mind, right? Be the cool neighbor that hosts a trendy wine tasting with your personal wine consultant. Break out the good wine glasses and the fancy China, we’re having a party!
#6 – Learn To Pair Wine & Food Better
You’re a great cook, and you definitely enjoy plenty of wine with your meals. However, you’ve never quite mastered putting it all together. Pickup a few new tricks to match your wine and food, and you’ll take both up a notch at every meal!
#7 - Show Off Your New Home Projects
Yeah… you really just want to brag, but inviting your friends over to envy your new kitchen remodel just doesn’t seem appropriate. But… if the wine tasting just happened to be in said awesome new kitchen, then that’s totally not being a show off! Oh wait? They want to see the new basement too? Well if they insist!
#8 - Finally Make All Those "Wine Tasting" Pinterest Ideas
You’ve been pinning “wine” ideas to your Pinterest boards for years… wine crafts, wine appetizers, wine decorations, cork creations, bottle trees, wine gifts… the list goes on! Now you have a reason to open up that board and get creative!
#9 - It's Not a Bar
There was a time when all you wanted to do was hang out at a bar on a Saturday night. That probably doesn’t hold quite so much appeal these days, so let’s bring the same amount of fun, all your friends, and some much better wine to your own bar inside your house! Best news… no driving home after… just walk upstairs!
#10 - You Need Wine
“Need” may be a strong word, but some days it’s damn appropriate. After a rough day, you’re going to want a bottle of wine you know you’re going to love. At the tasting, you’ll sample awesome new wines that you’ll want to have ready for just that type of day! Heck, good days deserve great wines too!
There will always be reasons to never get around to scheduling a wine tasting, but I hope you realize there are also plenty of reasons to just pick a date and make it happen!
I look forward to working with you to host a relaxing, fun-filled and educational wine tasting with friends, family, and colleagues!
So just do it! Complete my Book a Tasting Form, and let’s get to scheduling your tasting!
