“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.

    Nice one, Joe! I have to say that I'm bummed I missed the event. And you weren't so bad…at least you didn't (really) slur!

    That event was a lot of fun, Joe. Are you coming to the next Wine Riot in the fall?

    • 1WineDude

      I just might bro – any details on that one yet?

    • 1WineDude

      Wait a second… just saw this on WineRiot.com :

      "Drawing on Boston’s expansive 23-34 year old population, Wine Riot attracts over 2,500 New England wine drinkers ranging from the curious beginner to enthusiastic connoisseur."

      I'm too old to go to Wine Riot!!

        No worries, you are NEVER too old, we just had to outline the general population of who will be there for marketing folks. MOSTLY 23-34, plenty of people older and younger (er, well younger being 21-23 ;)

    It's good to see Morgan! We are old friends from school and former colleagues. I'm very proud of what they did. From all appearances they really organized a spectacular event.

  • 1WineDude

    Yeah – they rocked my socks!
