Here are a few tips when it comes to the wine for your summer party.
Play up the setting by chilling bottles in a garden urn filled with ice.
Remember that 1 (750 ml.) bottle of wine holds about 5 (5-oz.) glasses.
Estimate that 2 glasses of wine per guest for the first hour of a party plus 1 glass per guest for each additional hour.
For a wine tasting, choose 5 to 6 different wines and plan on 1 bottle of each for every 6 to 8 people.
