As a Traveling Vineyard Wine guide you have the opportunity to create an income doing something you love. Your job as a wine guide is to host wine tasting parties for other wine lovers in your area. As the host it is your responsibility to set everything up and ensure everyone has a good time. If you do a good job there is a good chance some of your guests will invest in the wine they just finished tasting. If that should happen you will earn money from those sales.
That in a nutshell is the basics of being a Traveling Vineyard Wine Guide. So now the question is how do you create the perfect Traveling Vineyard wine party that ensures your guests have a great time and you earn some cold hard cash in the process?
The answer to that question can be found in these 3 simple steps:
Step #1 – Choose The Right Theme
This is the first and most important step. As the host it is very important you choose the right theme for your event. While it is okay to highlight wines from various regions around the world, you don’t want to have so many wines that it overwhelms the guests. Try to stick with featuring one variety of wine from a diverse region. You could even have a blind comparison contest to see if guests can guess what region of the world the wine is from.
Step #2 – Gather All Needed Supplies
Once you have your theme its time to gather all the supplies needed to make it come to life. Some supplies you may need include glassware, a corkscrew, water, Neutral-tasting palate cleanser, a large bucket and wine bags if you plan on doing a blind tasting. As a new host you will get a wine tasting kit that includes glassware, wine and a storage case.
Step #3 – Set The Table
Set the table so that every guest will be comfortable and have plenty of space to enjoy the wine tasting. If you will be serving crackers make sure the glasses are set at the top of the plate. Place the large bucket at the center of the table and make sure each guest has a pen and paper to take notes.
