I’ve written a lot about hosting a wine tasting party, about the supplies you need to have and where to find good bargains, I’ve touched on themes and different styles of wine tastings, I’ve even designed a wine tasting template for you to download and have fun with; so now I’d like to go into invitations. If you’re going to throw a wine tasting event, you need invitations. Of course, you can buy them at bulk and save yourself some time, but if you are like me, a perfectionist, then you might want to make them yourself, which means you’ll want to know the right wine tasting invitation wording for your cards.
If you just want to get it over with and you don’t care about making the invitations yourself, here are some good examples you can purchase right now. Click to enlarge them (this will take you to the details page):

For everyone else, this shouldn’t really be difficult. But if you are having a rough time coming up with ideas, let’s walk through it.
What kind of event will it be, a wine tasting dinner or a regular event with note cards and plastic wine glasses? Is it an anniversary where a toast will be made? A wine and cheese party, perhaps? A wedding? The key is to base the invitation around the setting. It sounds simple and I don’t want to insult anyone’s intelligence by being so obvious, but sometimes a little hand holding is in order.
Alright, on to the wording. Some basic principles apply here when designing invitations to a wine tasting for beginners. That would be the Who, What, When, Where and How. You don’t have to be Robert Frost and have your wine party invitation wording mesmerize your guests, you just need to know the answers to those questions.
You want to list:
1. Who is holding the tasting event.
2. What the event is for, or the occasion.
3. When this shindig will be happening.
4. Where it will be happening.
5. How much do you expect it to suck. Just kidding. How would be more for describing wine tasting themes.
That’s it. You won’t really have a lot of room to write much anyway so it’s best to keep your wine tasting invitation wording simple.
