Wine Stocking Stuffer

Sure, we’re partial over here at Wine Teasers, but if you’re looking for a wine-related stocking stuffer, we think you should consider Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers.

The game measures about 4 x 6 x 1 inch – just the right size for almost any stocking you can think of.

In fact, that’s one of the things people like about this game – it fits easily into a purse or a jacket pocket.

Why is that cool? Well, do YOU want to be the person who walks into a get-together with a big board game that basically shouts, “Hey everyone, PLAY ME!” Regardless of how well the conversation is flowing, no matter how much fun people are having doing something else, nobody can completely ignore the fact that someone brought a game, and at any moment that game might intrude on an otherwise wonderful evening.

No, you don’t want to be that person. That’s why, with Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers in your purse or pocket, you don’t even have to reveal you brought a game, but if the conversation starts to lag, if the get-together is FIZZLING LIKE A BAD BUBBLY, that’s when you say, “Hey, anyone want to try this cute little wine game I found?”

And then, you’re a rock star.

So help your friends be rock stars. Stuff their stockings with Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers. They’ll thank you. Really, they will!

Wine Teasers at Barnes & Noble

Wine Teasers at Barnes & Noble

Wine Teasers at Barnes & Noble

Wine Teasers is in Barnes & Noble stores throughout the country. They’re not at BN Online, but they’re in the stores.

Where do you find them in the stores? Look for a display titled “Gifts” or in some stores “Entertainment” or something similar. It will probably look like the photo on the right — at least in my experience, that’s where they seem to be most commonly found.

In the photo on the right, Wine Teasers is on the second shelf, right side.

Even if you ask and they can’t find the game, don’t give up until you’ve searched the “gifts” or “entertainment” displays – in one store, the clerk couldn’t find the games, but after more searching, I found it on this display.

Everyone knows what the date on the bottle means, right? Or do they?

The Wine Teasers is: Everyone knows what the date on the bottle means, right? Or do they? It indicates:

A: When the wine was bottled
B: When the grapes were harvested
C: The ideal time to drink

While most people will know it’s not C, many people won’t know for sure if the answer is A or B. But it’s OK not to know for sure because all Wine Teasers questions have a GREAT BIG HINT, which usually nudges people toward the right answer.  Players move ahead more quickly if they don’t need the hint, but it’s always there, ensuring that  Wine Teasers wine game is playable by even people who know little about wine.

Hint: Ask John Deere

John Deere … harvested … sure, it’s a little corny (ha ha), but it’s a definite nudge toward the right anwser.

Answer: B. The reason vintages matter is because weather conditions can be so different from year to year. Especially in Europe. In regions like Australia and America it’s not as big a deal.

That’s an actual question from Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers wine game, the most fun, zany, unintimidating wine game on the planet!

The saucer-shaped Champagne glass was supposedly modeled on…

The Wine Teasers is: The saucer-shaped Champagne glass was supposedly modeled on:

A: Marie Antoinette’s breast
B: The head of Dom Perignon’s infant son
C: A Spanish orange

Like all Wine Teasers questions, it doesn’t really matter if you know the answer, because each question has a GREAT BIG HINT.  You move ahead more quickly if you don’t need the hint, but it’s always there, ensuring that  Wine Teasers wine game is playable by even people who know little about wine.

Hint: Let them drink 34B!

Answer: A. This glass, called a “coupe,” is now out of fashion, since its wide surface area allows bubbles to dissipate. Much better is the long, thin tulip or flute-shaped glass. No word on what or who was the model for that.

How’s this for wine prose?

gods-men-and-wineFrom Gods, Men, and Wine by William Younger, 1966. These are the two opening paragraphs of this rather old and musty book, which I hope turns out to be as good as its beginning:

“A bunch of grapes is beautiful, static, and innocent. It is merely fruit. But when it is crushed it becomes an animal, for the crushed grapes become wine and wine has an animal life.”

“Wine suffers a heaving birth. It has a rough, groping childhood. It develops into adolescence. Then, if it does not sicken, it matures; and in this it is almost human since it does not mature according to a fixed rule but according to the law of its particular and individual personality. The act which gives it personality is the act of fermentation. In this metamorphosis it is changed from fruit into animal; sometimes even into an animal of splendour.”

Don’t forget to order a copy of Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers wine game in time for Father’s Day!

What’s most likely to kill you at a winery?

The Wine Teaser is: What’s most likely to kill you at a winery?

A: Exploding tanks
B: Tractor accidents
C: Falling in a wine vat

That’s a pretty esoteric question – one that few people will get right on the first guess. But Wine Teasers wine game is not really about knowing the answers, it’s more about exploring the questions. So, in this case, the GREAT BIG HINT leads everyone –gently and pleasantly — to the answer and discussion point.

Hint: Cool! Can I choose the wine?

Answer: C. To survive in a vat of wine, you’ll need a gas mask, not a snorkel, since you’ll probably be overcome by noxious gasses. Vineyards and wineries can be dangerous places, so much so that OSHA has released an educational movie title, The Safe Winery.

That’s an actual question from Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers wine game, the most fun, zany, unintimidating wine game on the planet!
