Wine Tags


If you are anything like me, you have a short term memory. Saying something three times over and over to myself just doesn’t work. I have to take a picture of where I parked the car at the airport or four days later I just won’t remember how to find it. So how am I supposed to remember what color my wine glass identifier was?




For John's 40th Blind Wine Tasting Party I created little name tags for each wine glass. This was also a great substitute for name tags since everyone did not know each other. These tags were created using buff card stock and printed in French Script font. They were punched using an EK Success tag punch. TIP: To center the name on the tag, hold the punch upside-down and slide the card stock into the punch with the name showing . . . center the name and punch. Small holes were punched on the end of the tag and then secured to each wine glass with soft white, floral wire used for corsages.


To hide the wine during the tasting portion of the party, brown lunch bags were put through the printer. This font was Curlz printed at 400. The bag was trimmed one inch at the top and secured with a rubber band. For white wine a clear cellophane bag was added over the top so it could be kept on ice.

  1. Great Idea.

    I like the CULRZ font... so glad you didnt use COMIC SANS (ha ha!)

    What is an EK Success (?)--is that a punch for scrapbooking-just guessing.

  5. Burgundy Wine lies at the very heart of France, and is one of the world’s finest wine producing regions. Located two hours to the southeast of Paris, the wine area starts in Chablis in the north of the region and then it follows the autoroute A6 southerly to Lyon.

    The Burgundy soil is mainly based on oolitic limestone, upon which both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes flourish. The red wines, made with the Pinot Noir, are more difficult to grow because these grapes are more sensitive to disease or to being badly handled. Towards the south of the region, from around Macon, the soil changes to a reddish granite schist and sand of the Beaujolais. Here, the Gamay grape flourishes, making excellent red wines, many of which are drunk while they are young.

    If you have not been to Burgundy, try it. It is a great part of France to visit for a holiday. Alternatively, stay at home and simply drink and enjoy the wine.
