Wine Cellar Inspirations: Fun Wine Games For Your Halloween Party

October 10th, 2018

Halloween night is still weeks away, but planning early for your Halloween party is always a good idea. Apart from your food and wine menu, you should definitely think about providing some entertainment. If you’re going to have a good number of guests, an icebreaker or two is in order. Here are some fun wine games you can try out:

Fun wine games to try out!

The Blind Man’s Wine Challenge

This is quite a heavy favorite with a lot of wine tasting parties. There’s a general set of rules, but you can modify the game to suit the party mood. The great thing about this is that both beginners and expert wine tasters can participate. So if you have a mixed crowd, this will help to put everyone at ease and enjoy the rest of the night. Prepare several bottles of wine (make them as varied as possible), blindfolds, adhesive labels, and markers. You will also need some disposable cups, paper and pencil for each guest, and a list of wines. Cover the wine bottles with adhesive labels and number them. Put the corresponding numbers on the cups as well. Each guest should have a cup for each bottle of wine. Hide the wine bottles and when your guests arrive, give each of them a blindfold. Give each guest the first cup, and have them the wine. Read off a list of the wines the guests are tasting, and have them write down their best guesses. Once everyone has tasted all the cups and put down their guesses, the blindfolds are removed. It’s time to check who identified the most number of bottles correctly!

Guess the number of corks!

Guess The Number Of Corks/Caps

This game is easy to prepare and won’t give any of your more experienced guests an upper hand. Prepare two or three transparent glass jars of varying sizes. Fill them up with wine bottle corks or caps. Put a sheet of paper and pen in front of each jar. As your guests arrive, have them write down their guesses for each jar on the paper, next to their names. Don’t forget to prepare some nice “prizes” for the winners. The one who can make a guess closest to the number of corks/caps inside the jars wins. There will be one winner for each jar!

Wine Toss With A Twist

Wine Toss is always a fun way to loosen everyone up. But instead of the usual wine toss, try putting a twist into the game to make it more challenging. Here’s how it goes! First, set up some empty wine bottles and divide your guests into two (or three) groups.  Each group will receive the same number of rings. As the host, you will read off some trivia questions. Your guests will try to toss the rings into the wine bottle which they think is the correct answer. The catch? Once a group runs out of rings to toss, they can’t answer any more questions. So they have to be careful not to waste a lot of rings on just one question. Naturally, the group with the most number of correct answers wins! ^_^
