Dracaena WinesI decided that I wanted to get more interactive on our Facebook page. I thought about what would people like to know or discuss.  After pondering the topic for a while, I came up with Wine Scenarios.  I use scenarios in my classes all the time. I ask my students what would they do in a certain situation. They tend to like these days that I bring them up (maybe because it means less running, but I like to think they like the activity.) I started doing a wine scenario a day and it has been greeted with enthusiasm on our page. If you haven’t liked us….. what are you waiting for? Here’s the link

I don’t know how long I can continue to create these scenarios. It’s a lot harder to come up with wine scenarios than high school scenarios. I hope you enjoy and I hope they make you think!  Please leave me some comments of what you would do! 

Scenario 1

You are invited to a dinner party. You brought a food dish and an expensive bottle of wine. Upon arriving, you notice there are only red solo cups. No one knows you brought the bottle- do you open the bottle? What do you do? 


Scenario 2

You are in an exclusive wine shop. You notice the person next to you just stole a bottle of Screaming Eagle. They offer to pour you some to keep your mouth shut. What do you do?


Scenario 3

You won the wine lottery and your cellar will be stocked but you have to choose Old World or New World. It can’t be a combination. Which would you choose? Why? What would you do? 


Scenario 4

Your home is on fire, You have to make a decision. Do you save your wine or your mementos? What would you do?



In addition to these wine scenarios, I ask a wine question of the day. So head over to our Facebook page, give us a like and play along!

  1. Hi Lori, I do enjoy these scenarios. Thanks for your efforts!
    #1 We went through this one. Someone brought a bottle of Silver Oak and the host provided plastic cups. It was a travesty. I’d save the bottle and bring it with wine glasses if we were invited again.
    #2 Having been a liquor store owner, I’m not letting them get away with stealing.
    #3 New world. As much as I’d like to explore the Old World, my husband wouldn’t be happy with it. Ah, the sacrifices we make for love…
    #4 With the California fires on the news, I’ve actually thought about this. Our lives are all digital now, old photos have been scanned, videos and music converted. I’m grabbing the backup drives. There’s nothing in our wine collection that can’t be replaced.

    1. I’m glad you are enjoying them. I am trying to come up with some more. Yes, the sacrifices we make for love!

  2. Ou… tough scenarios. #2- definitely don’t let the person get away with taking the bottle! I wouldn’t care what wine it was.

  3. OHHHH great questions!!

    1. Cork that bad dog. Wine is for sharing.

    2. Take the sip, THEN turn him in.

    3. Old World.

    4. Both. Wine is a memento 🙂
