Virtual Tweetup and Tasting – Wednesday May 19th.

There will be a Virtual Tweetup and Tasting on Wednesday May 19th. This is going to be special as we celebrate both #WineryWeek and #WineWednesday together on that day. Participants will tweet together in “real-time” their thoughts, tasting notes, opinions and recommendations of wines from different wineries. People will be able to ask questions directly to the wineries and wine makers. The Virtual Tweetup and Tasting will start at 7:00 pm EST and go through 10:00 pm EST. It’s going to be a lot of fun so plan on joining in on the fun.

Be sure to buy and open some wines, spread the word, get your friends and your favorite wineries to participate in #WineryWeek.
