The wine stash that went home with Brian, the lucky winner.

I invited Chicago Foodies over for dinner Saturday night, and as we talked about all things gourmet over an aluminum tin of lasagna, we also played a fun party game.

Here’s how it works. Set a price limit and ask your guests to bring two bottles of the same wine. Open one of each bottle and blind taste test. ┬áThen rate them. ┬áThe person who brings the bottle that gets the most votes wins the rest of the stash to take home! This game was simple, affordable, and a hit!

We attempted to pair our wine with the Italian meal, but next time I think I’ll ask folks to bring one verital within a specific price range for a better quality comparison. Still, it was a good time and so nice to share a meal with fellow food lovers!
