how many glasses of wine

The Cellar Dweller helps a reader plan for a holiday party by determining how many glasses of wine to have on hand.

Dear Cellar Dweller,

I’m in charge of drinks at our company’s holiday party this year. There will be 15 people, so how many glasses of wine should I plan for? 

Thanks!

Thirsty Thursday

how many glasses of wine

Dear Thirsty,

Ooh, math! My favorite. Nothing makes my little cardboard brain heat up like figuring out serving sizes. Since you haven’t mentioned your workplace culture or if you have designated drivers in place, I am going to assume that everyone will partake, but that it would be frowned upon for y’all to get hammered. So, maybe one to three drinks per person? Great.

 

A standard sized bottle of wine is 750 ml, and contains approximately six glasses. Fun fact: did you know that you aren’t supposed to fill your wine glass to the rim? It’s true. The pour should only come up one third to one half of the way, which leaves plenty of room to aerate the wine. Although this is something that literally no one does at holiday parties.

how many glasses

For fifteen guests at three drinks per person, you’ll need 8 bottles of wine. This should account for some people drinking more and others less. But you know your coworkers better than I do, so adjust as you see necessary. If Cindy from accounting is a bit of a lush and your boss called an Uber last year, you might want to up that number a tad.

You didn’t ask about what kind of wine to bring, but for a crowd pleasing variety, try to get at least one sweet, one dry, and one blend, in reds, whites, and blush.

And there you have it! The perfect amount of wine for your holiday party. For those of you following along at home, feel free to adjust my formula for your own purposes. And if you’re planning on talking politics with your uncle, might I suggest vodka instead?

Your Friend,

wine for thanksgiving

CD the Cellar Dweller shares his recommendations for a great wine for Thanksgiving Dinner.

wine for thanksgiving

Dear Cellar Dweller,

Thanksgiving is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am hosting for the first time! I am really excited because my parents will be here, as well as my sister and her husband and kids. What are your suggestions for a great wine for Thanksgiving dinner? I’d like to impress without spending a fortune, say maybe under $30? Thanks!

Sincerely,

Cranberry Sauced

 

Dear Sauced,

You’re in luck! There are literally hundreds of great wines– impressive wines, even– that you can get for $30 or less. And double down on your luck: picking a wine for Thanksgiving Dinner isn’t nearly as restrictive as you might think.

Many folks like Pinot Grigio with their Thanksgiving dinner, and for good reason. Pinot Grigio is light but acidic, with a seriously varied flavor palate, so it’s good with almost anything that isn’t tomato-based.

Beaujolais Nouveau  is another popular choice. A celebration of the harvest, Beajolais Nouveau is released every year a few weeks before Thanksgiving. It’s a “green” wine, meaning it’s not been aged very long, and so the quality and taste changes from year to year. Honestly, I think it usually tastes like feet. But if feet is your thing, you might want to give this a go.

My personal suggestion if you really want to impress?

Go with a wine that’s a little unexpected. Everyone knows the old adage that white wine goes with poultry or fish. So, try a red! Just remember to stay clear of anything that’s going to really overpower your meal. A good place to start would be with a Pinot Noir.

Pinot Noir tends to be earthy and a little spicy, but a bit less robust than many other reds. Pinot Noirs pair really nicely with traditional Thanksgiving flavors like turkey, squash, and stuffing. My favorite: Meomi Pinot Noir. It hits all the talking points and comes in several dollars below your budget. The bottle looks classy, too. We’re actually going to have a bottle open to try on Wednesday November 21st— the day before Thanksgiving– if you like to live dangerously and wait until the last minute to shop!

And so hey, while we are on the subject, did you know that you can browse a good chunk of the inventory at Personal Wine Cellar right on our website? You can even filter items by price, region, and varietal. There’s a shop for spirits, too. Pretty cool.

I hope you floor them with your culinary skills and wine selection this Thanksgiving, Sauced. Good Luck!

Yours Truly,

CD the Cellar Dweller

difference between vodka and gin

The Cellar Dweller explains the difference between vodka and gin.

difference between vodka and gin

Dear Cellar Dweller-

A friend and I recently had an argument about gin. Friend says that gin is just a flavored vodka. I say they are different spirits because gin is made from juniper berries. Who’s right here?

Sincerely,

It’s Me, Right?

distilled juniper

Dear Right,

First of all, wow. You guys always ask me the BEST questions. Seriously, I’m impressed.

My short answer is, you’re both kinda right. Let me explain though, because it’s neat. And also, because this is what they pay me to do. Pull up a chair!

Vodka and Gin have a lot in common.

Both are distilled, clear spirits made predominantly from grain. They both start with neutral grain alcohol for a base. They are often used interchangeably in a wide variety of cocktails. That’s about where it ends, though.

Vodka, in its essence, is what it lacks. The word “vodka” itself denotes that: it is derived from the Russian word for water (voda). So to make vodka, you need two ingredients: neutral spirits and water. That mixture is filtered and treated until it is odorless and flavorless. The perfect base to provide your favorite flavors with a little kick!

On the other hand gin, in its essence, is what it is. To make gin you can start with that same neutral spirit base, but then add in botanicals. Or even add the botanicals right to the mash. In order to be official though, it must have at least some juniper in it.

So my own personal take, is that if Vodka is a ghost, then Gin is the Ghost of Christmas Present. Same basic principle, but Gin has a bit extra (in a good, non-Jacob-Marley-creepy sort of way).

ghost of christmas past

And the US government has a say, of course.

Of course! And they say there IS a difference between vodka and gin. According to the Tax and Trade Bureau, Vodka is classified as  “distilled from any material at or above 95% alcohol by volume (190 proof), and if bottled, bottled at not less than 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof)“. YUM, right?

Gin, on the other hand: “main characteristic flavor derived from juniper berries produced by distillation or mixing of spirits with juniper berries and other aromatics or extracts derived from these materials and bottled at not less than 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof)“.

So There You Have It.

Gin can be made like a flavored vodka, but it’s official definition states that it is in a separate category. According to the US government, there is a difference between vodka and gin. Take that for whatever it’s worth, gentle reader. If nothing else, the government agrees with you!

Sincerely,

CD the Cellar Dweller
