The best way to learn about wine is to host your own tasting party in your home. Of course, the more you know about wine, the more fun the party will be for everyone. However, even if you are an amateur wine connoisseur you will have a great time with everyone and get the chance to enjoy a glass of wine and some delicious food. Here are some of things you will need if you plan to host your own wine tasting party.

First, get yourself some pretty wine glasses, mini wine glasses are great and fun to use at wine tasting parties. You can get a variety of different shapes, sizes and styles of wine glasses that will add to the fun of the party.

Second, plan a menu that includes bite sized appetizers, little desserts are nice, too. You could make some mini mushroom tartlets, little ham roll-ups and  perhaps some cute little meatloafs.

Third, get some pretty tasting dishes. You can get tasting plates to match the elegant decorations you will be using at your wine tasting party. Tasting plates are perfect tableware that offer a modern touch to parties, catering events and restaurant establishments.

Things to consider when picking out tasting plates:

1. How many people will be coming to your party? You need to know an approximate number of guests so you can make sure to purchase enough plates.

2. What style of plates do you want to use at your party? You can find tasting plates that are really elegant, some that are pretty and some that add charm to your party decor.

3. How much food will you be serving at your party? If you plan to serve many appetizers, then you will want to get slightly bigger plates like Round Bamboo Plates. However, if you are only going to serve one or two small sized appetizers, then you could use some adorable little plates like the Shooting Star Appetizer plates.
