I missed my first Twitter virtual wine tasting. But at least I was invited! A group of wine lovers met in Napa on one of those nights where people all over were opening special bottles of wine and sharing their tasting notes and thoughts about the wines with other wine lovers.
I later heard it was a success, with lots of great wines opened, and that those who had participated, in various locations around the country, had exchanged tweets about what they were tippling. The Twitter jury is still out for me. And WineSpectator.com recently started a Twitter feed for our Daily Wine Picks, Q&As and many articles. (You can find it at www.twitter.com/winespeconline.) I can see it’s gaining popularity, especially among younger people. But as someone who writes thousands of tasting notes a year, it’s not for me. At least not yet.
But I’m hardly closed-minded about Twitter. I never thought I’d carry a cell phone and be exchanging text messages with family and friends either. So I’m curious if any of you exchange wine notes, thoughts, etc., via Twitter and to what extent you find them useful or beneficial. Or where do you see it going?
