Wine Tasting - The Best Hen Party Activity Ever?

Wine tasting, an educational opportunity to learn about bouquet, body and other important wine tasting terminology ... or just an excuse to get a bit tipsy with your bridal party!

We ran a poll on our twitter page to find out everyone's favourite hen party activity and guess who won? Congratulations wine, everybody loves you!

wine tasting activity hen do

There are so many brilliant hen party activities on offer these days from bungee jumping to jet skiiing, but wine tasting remains one of the most popular for hen weekends and we're not surprised!

We present our top 6 reasons why wine tasting is Queen of hen party activities:

Wine is good for you

As well as tasting absolutely delicous, wine helps prevent heart disease and cancer, keeps your bones strong, reduces your risk of Alzheimers and most importantly it makes you happy! Is there anything it can't do?!

Wine is brilliant for bonding

Getting a group of girls or guys together who don't all know each other is always a bit of a challenge, you just want everyone to get along, with wine they will - guaranteed!
Wine will also significantly increase the chance of participation in hen party games; you gotta get those embarassing pictures somehow...

Wine is a crowd pleaser

Whether you're bringing your grandma or your little sister, (& by little we mean over 18 obviously!) wine tasting is a hen party activity everyone can get involved in.

Wine is a winning warm-up

If you're planning a wild hen night, what better way to get prepared than by spending the afternoon sipping vino with the ladies, the most relaxing dutch courage you'll ever get.

Wine includes Champagne

When we say wine tasting we naturally mean Champagne too, & what would a hen party be without Champagne!

Wine is the theme

When it comes to hen party themes, anything centered around wine is guaranteed to be a classy affair. Our favourite is 'French Fancy'; dress up Parisian chic and see how many guys your ladies can convince they're French, extra wine is encouraged to attempt this.

Let's face it ladies, a hen party without wine is like a wedding without the groom! If you love wine as much as we clearly do, then wine tasting might just be the perfect activity for your hen weekend.
