Drinking wine can get even better with the playing of games. Here are a few wine drinking games to try out as you down drinks the next time.
Exciting Wine Drinking Games
Take Your Best Guess
This game requires a combination of math skills and luck for you to emerge the winner. It makes for a fantastic party game and is very easy to put together.
A group of 5-10 friends into wine drinking games (If they are not into such games at the beginning of the wine games, they will be at the end).
Two clear bowls or jars
Twenty to thirty corks and twist off caps (At least ten of each)
A great way to get hold of these supplies is to open some of your favorite wines and get the caps. After that, you can place the bottles in a cold area as you wait for your guests. In this way, the wine will be ready when you are.
Start off by counting the number of twist-off caps and corks in your possession. Record the figures on masking tape and stick it to the bottom of the clear jar. Fill one container with twist-off caps and the other with corks. Be sure to check whether the components are equal to the figure indicated on the tape.
Set the jars in a visible area and give each guest a chance to guess the number of caps and corks. As you do so, ensure that none of them tries to cheat by lifting the jars. Whoever guesses the correct figures or comes closest to the actual numbers wins the game. The prize is up to you, and you can make it fun by gifting them a bottle of wine.
Filling the jars to the brim will make it harder for guests to guess the number of caps and corks. As such, the game will be exciting and will last for long. If you do not have both caps and corks, you can use one of the two choices.
Stella Rosa wines are of high-quality and thus are an ideal choice for use in this game. Try the Stella Black red wine for this game. This sweet wine features notes of blackberry, raspberry, and blueberry and you can easily pair it with Manchego cheeses.

The Aluminum Kingpin
You can now use wine bottles as bowling pins and have bowling games at your convenience. That’s right, a wine bottle can do more than hold wine, and it’s time to explore the options. Here is a twist to the game. Unlike in best guess where you first play, in this one, drinking comes first. This change in gameplay is because you require empty bottles for the game to work.
Start off by emptying the wine into your stomachs so that you can get the buzz going. Proceed to fill the bottles with sand or water to give them stability and strength. Choose a bowling arena for the game. You can go for a bench or the end of your lawn, depending on your preference. Set the bottles in a triangular manner, as in a bowling alley and prepare a bowling ball. An excellent idea for a bowling ball is a rubber kickball. You can now start competing against each other as to who will knock down most bottles.
The Domaine Loubejac Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2016 would be perfect for this wine drinking game. This red wine comprises of 100% pinot noir grapes, and it features notes of ripe strawberries. It pairs great with poultry, veal, and beef. Not only does this wine have an excellent finish but it is also reasonably priced.
Wine tasting challenge
How well do you know your wine? Many people like to show off their knowledge when it comes to wine. However, very few of them can pass a wine test when blindfolded. Try this wine game out, and you will see why it is one of the most played wine games in the world. You get different types of wine, and you pour them into different glasses. You then proceed to blindfold the guests and have them sample the wines. Guests then give a summary of the wines based on region, pricing and varieties used.
You can also add some questions such as the rating of the wine to make the game more difficult. The guests do not have to get each item right but whoever comes closest gets to walk away with their favorite wine. It’s an exceptional way to expand your knowledge regarding wine while having fun while at it.
The best style to play this game is to get the best wine brands on the market. Examples include Flichman Malbec Tupungato and the Sextant Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Flichman Malbec Tupungato is one of the best red wines from Argentina. Notes in this wine include roasted plums and blackberries. It has everything that wine lovers look for in a wine such as intensity, a long finish, and deep color. This smooth red blend can last days even when left out of the fridge.
The Sextant Cabernet Sauvignon, on the other hand, is a fruity red wine with hints of smoke and vanilla. Additional flavors in play include cola, black fruit, and anise.
Wine drinking goes hand in hand with wine games. Try combining the two next time you are downing some drinks, and you’ll be amazed at how compatible they are.
