How to Throw a Harvest Party

Posted on September 20, 2019

Looking to be the hostess with the mostess this Harvest Season in wine country? This is such a fun time of year for wine lovers so why not throw a Harvest Party to kick off the festivities and be a part of the celebration? Maybe you are looking to throw a seasonal wine party in your own home or looking to bring your planning talents to the next level. Whichever it may be, we have a few important tips to remember from what you learned at your Sonoma wine tour while planning your Harvest party. 

If you have the opportunity to join a Napa Winery tour in the fall, you will have the chance to experience the spirit of harvest. Setting the decor for your harvest party with hints of wine inspiration colors will surely make the details pop at your event. We love to incorporate the beautiful fall colors that we find out in the vineyards and around the valley. Even using extra vines can add a fun element to your decor. 

We know you will be focusing on serving and having some incredible wines ready for your guests, but don’t forget about another important part, the food! We do not know what says a wine party then a cheese and charcuterie board for your attendees to feast on. Not only are cheese and charcuterie boards beautiful but they allow guests to mingle while enjoying delicious bites all while sipping on wine.

Another way to have a little fun at your harvest party, can be creating some wine inspired games for your guests. Why not include all the knowledge you learned on your Napa or Sonoma wine tour to create a fun trivia game that will test your friends’ level of wine expertise? And of course, you could include a fun prize for the winner, maybe a bottle of wine?! Happy planning everyone!
