How to Word a Wine-Tasting Party Invitation

Wine-tasting parties please wine connoisseurs and amateurs alike. Invite your friends and family over for a wine-tasting party by sending out invitations that reflect the theme. Your wine-tasting party invitation should let guests know what to expect at your event and set the tone for the get-together. Give guests all the details about your party, and use wording that reflects the wine-tasting theme.

Craft an opening phrase that gets your guests' attention and tells them what the event is. For example, at the top of the invitation, you can say, "Cheers! Join us for a wine-tasting party!" Or, use more specific wine wording with a clever poem, such as, "Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet. Join us for a wine-tasting soirée!"

Identify the time and date of your wine-tasting party. Feature this information near the top of the invitation because it is one of the most important items that you include. For example, your invitation can say, "Saturday, November 6, at 7 p.m."

Write the host's name and the location of your wine-tasting party. Identifying the name and address helps any guests who do not know your address to identify the host of the wine-tasting party. For example, your invitation can say, "The McDonalds, 411 Manchester Street." You can include the name and address on separate lines, space permitting.

Ask for guests to reply. You will want an RSVP for your wine-tasting party so that you know how much wine and food to purchase. Here, you can incorporate the wine theme in your wording. For example, you can say, "Say bottoms up to Lizzie at 555-2816 by October 30."

Provide any information guests need at the bottom of the invitation. For example, you might want to tell them what wines you will serve, if there is a theme: "We will be sampling Italian wines." Or, you can let guests know that you are serving food: "We will serve light appetizers to accompany a selection of red and white wines."


Choose an invitation that also reflects your wine party theme. You can find many invitations in the shape of a wine glass or bottle, and these invitations will complement your wording well.
