Twitter Taste Live #4 & #5

The upcoming schedule for the next two Twitter Taste Live events has now been announced by Bin Ends.

On October 23, at 7pm, Jed Steele of Steele Wines will be the featured guest. Six of his wines will be on the tasting schedule.

"Steele and Shooting Star Wines was founded in 1991. Prior to that time, winemaker/owner Jed Steele was the founding winemaker, general manager, and VP of Production at Kendall Jackson for the first nine vintages of that company. Prior to his adventures at Kendall Jackson, Jed worked for 10 years for Edmeades, then a small independent winery in the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County, as winemaker and vineyard manager. Jed began working in the wine business at Stony Hill Winery in the Napa Valley in 1968.

From mid-1991 until mid-1996, Steele Wines co-leased a small winery in Lake County. In June of 1996, Jed purchased the old Konocti Winery between Lakeport and Kelseyville in Lake County. The winery is located on Highway 29, exactly one hour driving time from downtown Calistoga, driving north-northwest, 45 minutes directly east of Hopland in Mendocino County, and one and a half hours from Santa Rosa, driving north-northeast.

The list of the wines for the tasting will be announced soon and you can purchase them at Bin Ends.

On November 15, at 6pm, The Bloggers Take Over event will be held. This promises to be an intriguing event. Though the details are still being put together, it should involve wine bloggers from all over the world showcasing some of their favorite wines. Stay tuned for further details.
