The next superfunkadelic and ultra-exciting twitter LIVE Tasting Event is nigh upon us!

On Thursday at 7PM ET, I and my cadre of Philly-area wine geeks (henceforth to be called the 1WDP – or 1WineDude Posse) will be tasting what looks to be some stellar wines from Alsace stalwart Hugel & Fils, LIVE via twitter. Hit up BinEndsWine.com for the details on how YOU can join up for this event!

What’s more, the 1WDP will also be video broadcasting the event LIVE, so you will get to see things like a) just how smarmy my wine geek friends are, b) how short I really am, c) what my kitchen looks like, complete with the way cool Wire Chicken, d) how I look and fail at typing as I get progressively more and more inebriated!

To witness the madness, just come back to this post and view the embedded video herein. If you dare!

UPDATE: If you are joining us for the tasting event, head over to this link and register your bad self so everyone else participating follows you on twitter!

Speaking of the twitter tasting event, last week I hosted a giveaway for anyone leaving a comment to suggest what food to serve with all of that great Alsace wine during the twitter tasting event. Thanks to all those who participated – I also want to commend you for suggesting so many dishes that made me drool but have an almost negative chance of my wife cooking them (e.g., pork bellies). You can check out the stellar suggestions here.

With the help of my dog (don’t ask), I randomly selected two winners from those who submitted comments… and there are…

First Prize (1WD T-shirt): Bradley Cooper!

Second Prize (1WD eBoook): Bloviatrix!

Congrats! I will be contacting each of you to deliver the goods.

See you (or, rather, you may see me) on Thursday!

Cheers!

Win Free Wine Gear (Prep. for Twitter Tasting Live #2)!

Vinted on August 11, 2008 binned in giveaways, twitter, wine industry events

In preparation for the upcoming Twitter Tasting Live Event (hosted by Winecast & BinEndsWine.com) on August 21st, I’m giving away FREE 1WineDude.com gear!

This round of the live twitter wine tasting will focus on the fabulous Alsace wines of Hugel & Fils. Mrs. Dudette and I will (once again) be hosting a group of local wine geeks and industry folk to taste the wines – while yours truly captures the (increasingly inebriated) tasting comments from our panel via my twitter account.

Of course, we want all of you folks to join in on this fun as well and taste along with us, and the rest of the twitter live participants (twitipants?). Check out BinEndsWine.com for details on how to join up.

I may also be streaming the (increasingly inebriated) 1WineDude group commentary via my Yahoo! Live channel!

Anyway, help me out and YOU could soon be wearing a Men’s “Wine Rules!” T-shirt, or a Women’s “1WineDude.com” cap sleeve T-shirt! Or be reading through the cool tips & tricks of wine tasting in my eBook!

All you have to do is help me & Mrs. Dudette prepare for the twitter tasting. Easy peasy nice an’ squeezy!…


Here’s the skinny:

  • Mrs. Dudette and I need to cook for our guests, and we need YOUR help! Leave a comment on this here post anytime between now and midnight ET Sunday, August 17. In your comment, tell us your favorite food to pair with wines from Alsace.
  • I will randomly select two winners from the comments.
  • Next week, I’ll post a round up of my favorite pairings from the comments, and will announce the winners:

    First Prize: A 1WineDude.com T (as described above)!

    Second Prize: A free copy of the 1WineDude.com Wine Tasting Guide!

Nothing to it.

So get cookin’ already!

Cheers!
