Bunco Scorecard - Brown Bag Bunco

Bunco Scorecards, Scorepads and NOW matching Invitations!  Wrap up a Brown Bag Bunco party today! With so many wines on the market, taking a chance on purchasing a new one can be a gamble. A brown bag wine tasting is an economical and fun way to share your favorite wine. Hosting one is simple. Have all your Bunco sisters bring a bottle of wine to Bunco, either their favorite, one of their finest, or just one they have wanted to try. 

You can even limit the wines to whatever you like - wines under $10, wines with animal labels or fun names, or wines from a certain year or country. Don't let anyone else see the wine when your guests arrive. Place the wine bottles in brown bags and number them, being sure to cover the label. Hand out a scorecard with numbering from 1-12 (or use your scorecards) and have each Bunco Sister rate the tastings from 1-10 during the course of the evening, 10 being heavenly and 1 being a potential gut-bomb.
Encourage comments on the scorecard. At the end of the evening tally the cards and do the unveiling. You might be surprised how the $6 bottle of merlot beat out the $29 bottle, and who knows, you might discover a new favorite. Everyone can write down their top three on their scorecards for potential purchase later.
Give prizes such as gift certificates or wine accessories to the people who brought the winning wines. What goes best at this Wine Tasting Bunco - cheese, crackers and some tasty breads and hour d'oeuvres of course. Brie, Gouda and Swiss pair nicely with white wines while Gruyere, Muenster and blue go well with heavier reds.

Drop by your local cheese store and they will be glad to help you choose the cheese for the evening. Uncork, unwrap and enjoy. Be sure to have a pitcher of water handy to rinse out the glasses and remember, this is wine-tasting (sips versus gulps). Enjoy!
