The bathing suits are stashed away, the pencils are sharpened and the kids are finally heading back to school. The winding down of summer festivities doesn’t mean that the fun should stop! Now is the perfect time relax, unwind, and take a breather before the mad dash to the holiday season. Why not gather your best gal pals for a girls’ night in Harvest Wine Tasting or party? Then again, a bottle of wine, a bowl of popcorn and a DVR-clearing marathon party for one or two can be just as sweet. Whichever way you choose to celebrate the end of summer, we’ve got you covered with the perfect wines. From fun wine accessories to chic postcard invitations in a wide range of Wine Tasting themes, you can find everything you’ll need to host the perfect wine event with these simple ideas:


The Vino – What’s a party without wine? Try a Half-Case of RedWhite or a Mixed Half-Case – or for something even more special, create a themed Personalized Wine like the popular Half-Case of Custom Label Talmage Sparkling Wine – and really let your party soar!

Everything Chocolate – What goes better with wine than chocolate? Try a chocolate raspberry tart. It packs a major visual punch, and it’s simple to slice and serve for large or small crowds. *Recipe and image courtesy of Italian blog

Wine Accessories – Keep some tools of the trade at the ready for impromptu parties or Wine Tastings. With a few select wine accessories on hand like our bottle tags, Posi-Pours or wine stain removers, you’ll be cool and calm no matter what.
