How to Use Wine Glass Charms
The best answer to how to use wine glass charms? In bulk! Wine glass charms are fun, affordable, and gift worthy. Depending on the types of wine charms you select, you might want to send them home with guests as a party favor.
Having several sets of wine glass charms on hands, helps you prepare for impromptu gatherings as well as party themes.
But before we move on with your list of Best Picks for Wine Glass Charms, let’s go over some of the uses and choices.
Even if your gathering is small, it’s still useful to help guests keep track of their glasses and avoid germs – not to mention it helps keep wine waste to a minimum. When someone doesn’t recognize their wine glass, they are likely to pour out the wine rather than risk drinking after someone else.
Some wine charms come with options for personalization. And, of course, wine markers also make personalization easy.
Traditional wine glass charms are like little bracelets that go around your wine stem. However, you also have the choice of magnetic charms, which come in especially handy when you use wine tumblers.
Another thing to consider is whether you want to reuse the wine glass charms or send them home with guests.
Parties often have themes, and with wine glass charms, it’s easy to find sets to match your party theme.

Wine Tumblers: The Star of Barware
If you opt for wine glass markers or magnetic wine glass charms, wine tumblers are an excellent choice for your gathering. There’s something to be said for using tumblers instead of stemware.
Wine tumblers are trending for a reason, and we can think of several.
- They store easily. Aside from the insulated wine tumblers, they stack easily in a cabinet.
- Again, other than the insulated variety, they are dishwasher safe.
- Wine tumblers are good for large parties, for the above reason, plus they don’t easily knock over.
- Some wines benefit from being held by the bowl.
- Insulated wine tumblers keep wine chilled longer than stemmed glasses.

What to Serve at Your Wine Tasting
Cheese, chocolate, desserts and charcuterie are the most popular foods to serve for wine tastings and for good reason. These foods pair well with wine.
We recommend a versatile Spanish cheese called Manchego, so called after the name of the sheep from which it is made.
Manchego cheese, a semi-hard sheep’s milk cheese with a distinctive balance of sweet and savory, has a buttery texture and notes of fruits and nuts. The Manchego becomes piquant as it ages.
Manchego cheese comes only from the whole milk of manchega sheep in the La Mancha provinces of Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, or Toledo.
We’ve written about everything you need to know about Manchego cheese in this article – The Exclusive Guide to Manchego Cheese Wine Pairing.
Games to Play at a Wine Tasting Party
Wine board games and wine tasting games are various enough to fit any type of gathering from an intimate gathering of friends and family to a fun party full of people.
One of our favorite wine tasting games is From Vines to Wines tasting and trivia game, which is meant to be both fun and educational.
The game creator took extra steps to make the board game itself appealing and the wine information accurate. The game was carefully researched by well-traveled wine tasters, and the main art of the game is based on an artist-commissioned oil painting.
What’s the premise of the game? Open 4-6 bottles, roll the die, move your cork from vineyard, harvest, crushing, clarification, bottling, and tasting. Along the way, answer trivia questions and taste test with each move.
Wine Board Games and Tasting Games
In addition to From Vines to Wines, we have recommended several board games for wine lovers as well as tasting party games in our article “How to unwind with the best wine board games and wine pairings.” We’ve also included wine pairing suggestions for the games.
Here’s a quick overview of our favorite wine board games and wine tasting games.
Stonemaier’s Viticulture Essential Edition board game gives you and up to 6 players an opportunity to create the best winery in Italy!
For those who love wine board games, Vinhos (Portuguese for wine) is well known. The game tests your skills at the trade and economics of wine making. The deluxe edition is updated with new art and components as well as improved and simplified rules of the original game.
A favorite among wine board games, Wine-opoly is just like the traditional game of Monopoly. Instead of real estate transactions, you are dealing in wine. The game is for two to six players, and you can choose between traditional length play time or a one-hour version.
Touted as one of the best wine board games for a girl’s night, Chardonnay Go is decidedly an adult game. As you move around the board, you will also draw challenge performance cards, such as “While dancing and stradling your chair, look alluringly to the person on your left.”
Game creators Conner and Jessica Taylor got the idea for the Sommify wine tasting game when Connor was studying for his sommelier exam and his level 3 WSET certification from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.
The Taylors thought the traditional way of studying wine tasting – joining a group – was rather stuffy. Instead, they developed a game that could be more like a fun friends night.
The creator of Winerd Tamara Leigh Murphy paired wine trivia questions, which can be difficult for those without wine knowledge, with a blind tasting wine board game that has been featured on the Today Show and on the Wine Spectator Gift Guide.
The Master Sommelier Wine Aroma Kit is big league material. This “game” is not something you buy for a boozy night with friends, and not to mention, it is expensive and not always available.
Wine glass charms may be fun or even beautiful, but they all serve a practical purpose as well. I’m one of those people who doesn’t like to lose track of their drink when I’m at a party – even a gathering in my own home.
Wine glass charm sets also make great gifts for occasions like:
- Christmas. It’s fun to pick out sets to match family member’s personalities. We like getting wine glass charms as stocking stuffers.
- For Bridal showers and bachelorette parties, it’s easy to find themed wine charm sets.
- Wine charms also make great hostess gifts or party favors.
