Alsace

Taste Wine With Me Tomorrow

by Tim Elliott on August 20, 2008

Just a reminder that in less than 24 hours the Twitter Taste Live event will be taking place. Join me on Twitter at 4pm PST/7pm EST tomorrow.

We’ll be tasting an array of wines from Hugel including their luscious Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardive 2001. The tasting has been organized by Bin Ends Wine who have provided the wines.

A number of wine bloggers will join me here and in Europe including Andrew from Spittoon, Robert from The Wine Conversation, Ryan from Catavino, Lenn from LENNDEVOURS, Megan, The Wannabe Wino, Dale from Drinks Are On Me, Richard, The Passionate Foodie and Joe, 1 Wine Dude. Also joining us is Etienne Hugel from Alsace where it will be very early Friday morning.

Follow the action on my Twitter feed and on the live video feed Bin Ends Wine has setup for the tasting. And if you are near Dry Creek Valley, join me live at the Michel-Schlumberger Estate to actually taste the wines with me. It should be a lot of fun and I think we just might move the wine world a bit in the right direction.
