Questions and answers
What do I need to host a tasting?
What is the Wine Options game?
The host starts off by asking very general questions such as ‘is this an Old World or New World wine?’, gradually getting more precise, asking for a guess of the vintage (‘is it pre-2000 or post-2000’) and whether or not the wine is Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir. Those giving the wrong answer in each round must sit down and are eliminated from the game until the producer and year (and possibly grape variety) has been correctly deduced or until there is no one left in the game.
What is a vertical tasting?
A horizontal tasting compares wines from a specific region and vintage.
