WineLoversÂ Challenge is an entertaining way for wine enthusiasts to enjoy a glass of wine while unlocking its character. Although players keep score, it is more of a sociable group activity versus a competitive game with complicated rules. WineLoversÂ Challenge makes a perfect gift for beginners to experts because it is easy to play as Sip, Talk and Enjoy. A host or hostess can even be part of a game and socialize while preparing dinner.
It makes a terrific ice breaker since everyone offers their perceptions to questions about the wine. The friendly discussions about the wineÂs personality often helps players enhance their wine appreciation by broadening their repertoire of aroma, taste and aftertaste variables. At the end of the game,playerÂs have their personal rating of the wine.
The game uses a blind tasting format wherein the bottleÂs label is covered so only one person knows the wineÂs origins, such as the grape variety used and whether it has been aged in oak. Although these WinePro questions often challenge even sophisticated wine connoisseurs, they are sure to stimulate lots of lively discussions.
Also included is the wineÂs Food Pairing potential. Every game asks you to assess how different vegetarian, seafood, pasta, poultry, meat dishes and appetizers match up with the wine being tasted.
Another category of questions,Tips, Grapes and Trivia covers everything from winemaking practices to wine events around the world. Exclusive to WineLoversÂ Challenge are wine related movie dialogue and song lyric questions as well as the health benefits of wine drinking. Each question is in a multiple choice format so no one is ever stuck for an answer. Either the question, or possible answers can be a catalyst for interesting conversations. The object is simply to enjoy the wine while exploring the world of wine and wine appreciation in the company of friends.
Every time you play you can assess a different wine, red, white, sparkling or desert wine. At the end of the game everyone feels satisfied having contributed to unlocking the wineÂs character and most likely picking up some wine knowledge. WineLoversÂ Challenge is an interesting gift idea for the wine enthusiast, sophisticated but also fun.
