Last Friday night we went to a party at our friend’s house. Instead of just hanging out like we normally do we decided to play a little game. Normally I’m not much of a game person but I found this game to be quite fun. Here’s how it goes.

Each couple brings two bottles of wine to the party. One bottle is wrapped completely in foil so you cannot see any part of the label. The point is to not know the name of the wine you are drinking. All the bottles that are wrapped in foil are placed in a row. You can number them, color code them or name them by writing on the foil with a marker. Through out the night everyone has a glass of wine from each bottle. We drank our glasses at the same time so we knew everyone was drinking the same wine at the same time. At the end of the night everyone votes on their favorite bottle of wine. We wrote our vote on paper and the host tallied up the votes. Whoever brought the bottle of wine with the most votes, wins! The winner then gets to take home all the second bottles of wine which were not covered in foil.

This was our first time participating in a game like this. We had fun and I won! The wine I brought to the party got the most votes. The wine I brought to the party was Cellar No. 8 Cabernet Sauvignon which I bought at Heinens for $9.99. It is definitely one of my favorite wines lately.
