My hubby and I are holding our "intro to wine" tasting tonight, and I have been on my feet all day prepping the house and food. (Hubby was his awesome self and cleaned the bathrooms. He'd do more but he has to work today.)

The whites:
Sauv Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Riesling

The reds:
Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cab Sauv, Shiraz.

(I was going with port, but changed my mind.)

This got changed on the fly to Creme Sherry when my original dessert fell through and another guest showed up with dark chocolate covered bananas.

I will be providing some basic veggie, cheese, and fruit nibblies, but we told our guests that if they want to bring something, bring an appetizer or a main course to serve 6. It will be a true potluck and our guests will find out by themselves what does/doesn't work. ;)


I am collecting keys at the door, and anybody who does not have a designated driver must hang out for at least 2 hours after their last drink.

sounds like a fun (and safe) evening for all. I hope all goes well. You have selected well..a good selection in the white and red varieties. Be cautious - too many oily foods (ie some cheeses, dips, olive tampanedes, etc) don't mix well with the reds and will produce a massive hangover in the morning - especially for those with weaker stomachs - learned that the hard way- whites not so much - reds with oils = TROUBLE. Has anyone else experienced this?

When I saw this I thought it was home wine making. I like making my own wine and it's almost time to find Elderberry Blossoms for my first wine of the season. Have fun at your wine tasting,.
