Guess Who Bottle Game

As my family started to get older we decided instead of giving so many gifts or having a gift exchange we would bring a nice bottle of wine to the host’s house as a gift for the adults in the group.

To make it fun and add a little entertainment to the evening we originally had the task to pick out a bottle which was a clue about the person who brought the bottle. For example, there is a wine called “Middle Sister.” Since I am the middle of five siblings that would be an appropriate gift although maybe a little too easy for me to bring. After a few years this becomes really hard to do, believe it or not. So this year I have asked my family to bring whatever wine (as long as it’s a good one) they want and include a note (so you can’t guess from the handwriting). This note can be a clue, a poem, a riddle, joke or saying and then we can guess who brought the wine from the note.

How We Play

Each bottle should be wrapped. When guests arrive the bottles are tagged with a number. A matching number also goes into a basket for drawing later. When you are ready to play each participant chooses a number from the basket and is given the corresponding bottle. Then you take turns unwrapping the bottles and trying to guess who brought it. It doesn’t take too much time although that does depend on how many people actually play and everyone gets to go home with a nice bottle of wine to enjoy.
