TTL & 1WineDude Make Yahoo! Tech News

Vinted on July 17, 2009 under about 1winedude blog, twitter taste live, wine news

The most recent Twitter Taste Live! event, featuring wines from St. Supery and drawing over 700 twitter updates from event participants, was featured this week on Yahoo!.TECH!

Fellow wine bloggers Natalie MacLean, SwirlGirls, and yours truly were also mentioned!

What I liked most about the article was this tidbit, which shows that the author was indeed tuned in to the balladromic course of the TTL happenings:

“Not surprisingly by the end of the three-hour tasting, the tweets became a bit less coherent.”

Anyway – glad to see TTL getting the coverage.  Check out the article after the jump:

St. Supery And Twitter Taste Live: Rockin’ Like Dokken!

Vinted on July 9, 2009 under twitter taste live, wine 2.0

Time for another Twitter Taste Live! event.

I know what you’re thinking.

Will this herald yet another untimely celebrity death and bring twitter to an equally untimely end?

I sure hope not.  At the very least, I hope I have a chance to be buzzed before twitter takes a dump all over the Internet.

So onward we will press… This time around, wine twitter-maven and all-around ubiquitous (and hilarious) on-line wine goddess Thea (a.k.a. WinebratSF) will be leading us through a tasting of wines hand-picked for Summer enjoyment from venerable Napa producer St Supéry Vineyards.

Proceedings will kick off at 9PM ET on Saturday, July 11.  You can read Thea’s energetic intro to the event here.  A run-down of the wines looks promising:

I’ll be in attendance, as I can’t seem to achieve escape velocity for any TTL event… nor would I want to, come to think of it…

“Some people spit…. I don’t…” (Revisiting Boston’s Wine Riot!)

“Some people spit…. I don’t…”

Words that will, no doubt, come to define my on-line “brand”… and come back to haunt me… (Epitaph: “Didn’t Spit” ?).

French Oak Media has posted their video coverage of Boston’s recent Wine Riot! event, which frequent 1WineDude.com readers will recall was taken over for the multi-country / multi-timezone / biggest-ever Hospice du Rhone Twitter Taste Live on-line tasting (which is given ample coverage in the vid).

I make a short cameo appearance towards the end of the vid, as does TasteLive! creator Craig Drollett.  I think Craig was more sober than I was, so pay more attention to him.

You can watch the vid below, or here after the jump.

Lazy Hazy Crazy Pinot Days of Summer (Twitter Taste Live This Thursday!)

Vinted on June 22, 2009 under twitter taste live

Here in the U.S. Upper Mid Atlantic, we’re growing more accustomed to muggy weather, short but severe thunderstorms, and vastly increased road construction. Which can only mean one thing.

Summer has arrived.

For those of you on the Left Coast, this Summer also includes the 2009 Pinot Days event, which will be held in San Francisco at Fort Mason from June 24th – June 28th.  For those unfamiliar with Pinot Days, it’s an event that brings together over 200 Pinot Noir producers from four countries, with 20 food vendors and more than 500 Pinots to taste.  Some info:

“Pinot Days brings together pinot producers representing every California appellation, style and price point, as well as a few from Oregon and Burgundy. It is our sincere hope that Pinot Days will enable you to explore new producers, find wines you love and can afford, and become a pinot devotee if you are not one already.”

As a precursor to the San Fran event, 1WineDude.com friends Twitter Taste Live are throwing a Pinot Days event that will run from June 18th through June 25th, and you could win some primo Pinot from them just by tweeting!…
