Holiday parties are fun and all, but you can only sit around sipping Merlot and talking about Karen’s boss for so long before you’re going to lose your damn mind. Thankfully, one wine subscription company is here to save the day with the perfect addition to your next soiree.
Winc’s new Wine Tasting 101 Kit is more like a board game than an actual class (making it the must-try activity for your next book club gathering or friendsgiving), but there’s still substantial info to glean from its contents. The kit contains six bottles of wine, six brown numbered bags (to disguise the bottles) and 11 info cards about each wine. As you and your guests try each wine, you can score the glass based on different factors like look, smell and taste.
And at $99 for six bottles (and endless laughs trying to guess flavor profiles after a few too many sips), we say “wine not?”
