Twitter Taste Live: The Bloggers Take Over

Join us on Saturday, November 15, starting at 6pm when Twitter Taste Live lets the Wine Bloggers Take Over! Consider this Open Mic night at the Improv. A number of bloggers, from all over the world, will take the stage one at a time and discuss a wine they have specifically chosen to highlight. There were no restrictions on which wine they could choose. Each blogger will tell everyone about that wine and you are also encouraged to ask questions.

I actually will begin the tasting (Twitter @richardpf) with the Masumi Okuden Kantsukuri "Mirror of Truth" Junmai Sake. My love of Sake is well known and I hope to get more people to embrace this compelling drink. I have never tasted this particular Sake so it will be new to me as well.

The rest of the tentative schedule looks like this.

@binendswine --Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2006

@saltlinestudio --Onix Priorat 2006

@bloviatrix --2005 Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards Right Bank

@chinawinelover --Huadong Vineyard 2000 (China) and Great Wall red 2002 (China)

@vinquire, @brixchick @drxeno will be tasting through selections from Hahn

@winecast will be tasting Carmeron Hughes Lot 92 and Lot 79 (maybe more)

@mmWine --Zen of Zins 06 Old Vines Zin (Ravenswood), Cline Ancient Vines 07 Zin, Estancia Paso Robles 05 Zin, 7 Deadly Zins 06 Old Vines (lodi)

@1winedude --Sherries, and other stickies!

Please join us and learn about some new wines. Thanks to Bin Ends for giving us wine bloggers this platform to discuss these wines. I hope to chat with some of my readers, and others, during this event.

This live online tasting is one of the most exciting wine/tech combos happening in the industry. I went to the in person live Twitter Taste Live in NYC on Sept 18th. Haven't been back since due to scheduling, but WILL make it back. Have a blast; this is a great way to connect with so many different wines, wine lovers, and producers.
