Announcing Twitter Taste Live 5: Cameron Hughes

by Tim Elliott on November 6, 2008

I’ve been involved with Twitter Taste Live since the second tasting and will be participating again next time when the theme is “Bloggers Take Over.” In past tastings wineries have presented a selection of wines and wine lovers from around the world then posted their thoughts on Twitter while tasting the same wines simultaneously. But the next time out each wine blogger will be able to pick their wine(s) and give you the chance to pick them up and taste along with us on November 15th.

Consistent with my theme of Wines For Recessionary Times, I will be tasting two wines from Cameron Hughes, one of my favorite purveyors of extreme value wine.

I have selected Lot 92 2004 Margaret River Chardonnay and Lot 36 2005 Rutherford Cabernet for the tasting.

The Chardonnay is available for just $14 at the Cameron Hughes online store but Lot 36 is only available in Costco or Sam’s Club stores (I paid $12.88 today for Lot 36 at Sam’s).

So pick up one or both of these wines, friend me up on Twitter and taste along with me on November 15th. I’ll be posting a follow-up with the approximate time of the tasting next week and, of course, tweet about this too. I hope you will join me or at least follow along on Twitter Search using the hash tag #ttl.

    Tim, it’s great to see a post from you again. Have these twitter tastings been cause for the lack of frequency?

    Very cool. Costco carries some pretty good wines at pretty good prices. I’ll “see” you November 15.

    Dylan: No, it’s not Twitter but my lack of hustle. That’s all changing now since I saw Gary at the wine bloggers conference 2 weeks ago… the tumbleweeds will be gone from this blog in short order.

    David: Glad you will take part on the 15th… should be a good time.
