hdr2Here’s an update on the BIGGEST On-Line Wine Event EVER coming on April 17th…

Just to recap where we are currently for those viewers who are just tuning in to the happenings:

  • Hospice du Rhone, the biggest non-profit business league promoting Rhone wine varieties (and host of one of the biggest yearly wine shin-digs) are teaming up with Twitter Taste Live for an on-line wine tasting event that will span three time zones (UK, U.S. East Coast, and U.S. West Coast).
  • All three time zones will be co-hosted with regional wine bloggers and will focus on different Rhone-related wine themes.
  • Yours truly will be co-hosting the East Coast portion of the event LIVE in Boston with the staff of Bin Ends Wine and on-line wine magazine The Second Glass.  UK duties will be ably fulfilled by The Wine Conversation, and Luscious Lushes will be leading things on the West Coast.
  • In Boston, we will be joined by over 500 of our soon-to-be closest friends at the kick-ass Wine Riot! event.
  • We will also be debuting the new TwitterTasteLive.com website for the event.
  • Like I said… Biggest… On-Line Wine Event… EVER!!!

logo1Honestly, do you need to know any more than that to sign up for this?  We’ve already got a healthy amount of folks who have RSVP’d – get your name on the list!

Anyway, we’ve just about finalized the Rhone-inspired wine selections for the East Coast portion of the event.  We’ve gone through a few iterations and potential sub-themes, mostly because my original wine picks were a bit on the pricey side.

We’ve managed to scour the (very long) list of Rhone varietals and HdR producers and have selected 4 wines (identities to be revealed soon – hint: they all have cutesy nicknames) that will make for an awesome (and reasonably priced!) tasting:

  1. An Aussie Viognier/Marsanne white blend
  2. An Aussie Grenache Noir
  3. A Paso Robles Grenache Noir
  4. A Rousanne dessert wine

Basically, this is going to kick all kinds of ass.  You will definitely want to be there!

Cheers – and see you On-Line on April 17th!
