Twitter Taste Live #3: Michel Schlumberger

The time nears for the third Twitter Taste Live event! Bin Ends has announced the guest and line-up for the new Twitter Taste Live which will be held on September 18 at 7pm. The special guests will be from the Michel Schlumberger winery in Sonoma County, California.

"Michel-Schlumberger lies off the beaten track in Wine Creek Canyon, a sylvan side pocket of Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California. Each of the wines from our benchland, hillside, and mountain vineyards illustrates the French concept of terroir, or the expression of a specific place. We take pride in the wines produced from this all Estate, organically farmed fruit. Here, tucked away from the mainstream in Healdsburg, you find artisan vineyard work and winemaking at its finest. We hope you enjoy your exploration."

The co-host for this Twitter Tasting will be wine blogger Megan of Wannabe Wino. There will be plenty of other wine bloggers, including myself, who will be participating as well.

September 18th is also the date of the Wine 2.0 conference and tasting in New York City. There will be a team of bloggers tweeting live from the event throughout the day, and Bin Ends will be streaming Twitter Taste LIVE from their table beginning at 7pm. Live participants in New York will include @binendswine, @1winedude and @saltlinestudio.

The wines that will be tasted include:

Chardonnay "La Brume" 2006
Syrah 2005
Merlot 2004
Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

All of these wines are available for sale at Bin Ends.

It is very simple to participate in this event. Just sign up for a free Twitter account and then follow "Binendswine" on Twitter. The first two Twitter Tasting events went very well and were lots of fun so why not join us for this third event.
