This Wednesday, Feb 1, I’ll (@melissa_ful) be co-hosting Wine Chat with Jameson Fink (@jamesonfink). Wine Chat is a weekly gathering of wine enthusiasts on Twitter, and we'd love for you to join!
This week, we’ll be tasting and tweeting about wines from Walla Walla Valley, Washington. Get ready to learn more about what makes this winegrowing area so remarkable, from its complex and varied terroir – combined with an optimal climate – to its passionate winemakers.
To join in is a breeze: Grab any wine from the region, log in to Twitter, and tweet along with us beginning at 9PM EST. Be sure to use the hashtag #winechat as you tweet along. You can save #winechat in Hootsuite or Tweetdeck (or your favorite app) as a single stream to follow, and chat with ease.
I’ll be exploring more Walla Walla Valley wines by opening Woodward Canyon Artist Series #16 2007, which is sold out at the winery (we @67wine still have a few bottles); magnums appear to be available through the winery.
As it turns out, the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance is in NYC this week. If you’re in NYC, taste a range of Walla Walla wines (with the winemakers) tomorrow night at Anfora Wine Bar at 7PM on Tuesday, Jan 31. If you around the city on Thursday, February 2, the grand public tasting is at the Metropolitan Pavilion from 5:30 to 8:30. We hear there are a few tickets still available, and you can use the discount code WINE for $25 individual tickets. Some of the participating wineries (and their Twitter handles) can be found below.
