We had our 2nd Annual Chenail wine tasting this past weekend and I want to give a big thanks to my friends Craig and John at North East Wine and Spirits! Thank you so much for your loaning of wine glasses and the great items for prizes!
This year I decided that I would create wine glass name tags! This was for two reasons. First, so everyone would know what glass was theirs! and second so that everyone would know each other’s names without having to pin on name tags.
I created all of the tags on My Digital Studio using the Savor the Season DSP! I then punched them out with the Scallop Circle Punch and a final layer using the X-Large Scallop Circle Punch!
So here is how the event works…… Each couple brings one bottle of red wine and one bottle of white wine. They are in a bag or wrapped in some fashion so that no one can see the label. Each couple is assigned a number (that only I know about). I created bottle tags too!
After all couples have arrived, we start the tasting! Each couple gets a note sheet to take notes on each of the wines they sample. At the end, each couple votes for their favorite red and their favorite white! The winner of each gets commemorative wine glasses (engraved with the letter “C” for Chenail) to take home! I also did the tags for these on MDS!!
Tied for winner of the best “red” this year was a red that I selected – Authentic Red – Gnarly Head, and a homemade wine from Jeff and Rebecca! The “trophy” went home with them!

As for the winning white….. I don’t remember! I guess I had to many samples!
Don’t be hesitant to use your stamping creativity in different ways! My guests LOVED the tags! Many of them took their name tags home too!!
…….. Until tomorrow!
