Sterling Challenge 4: Host a Wine Tasting at Home

There are few things I enjoy more than an evening at home with a few of my favorite people. Whether I’m making a delicious dinner, serving simple apps, or ordering in a pizza, there’s nothing quite like wine, food, and friends (the best trio!).

And what better way to get friends in the party mood than with an elegant (or informal!) wine tasting? And that brings us to Sterling's fourth and final Ultimate Host Challenge…

Sterling wants you to organize a home tasting event with your four favorite Sterling Vintner’s Collection wines. How would you make this entertaining event creative and different? What foods would you serve? Which wines would you choose?

Submit your ideas, tips, and videos on Sterling’s Facebook page. You could earn the opportunity to compete in Sterlings Ultimate Hostess Challenge in NYC in December. I’m one of the judges — along with Padma Lakshmi! The big winner will get a trip to Napa, a cash prize, and more!

Submissions end Nov. 21, so enter now!
