Wine Up: A wine tweet-up for Team Up!
Written by: Kristen Winn @girluniverse
Having worked in the Washington wine industry for 13 years and being heavily involved with Team Up for nearly a year, I wanted to blend my two loves and connect these communities. The modern way to get strangers in a room and talk to each other? A tweet up, naturally!
As the Washington wine industry continues its rapid growth (2nd only to California for largest producer), unless you quit your day job it’s just about impossible to keep up with what’s out there. So why not get a leg up and taste multiple wines in an evening AND have an expert educate you about them? Join us for our first #wineup Thursday, Oct 27 @ 630pm at Wine World!
Bring a few friends and –
Tweet the night away about who not only likes Riesling, but also learns that the organic Riesling from Snoqualmie will rock everyone’s socks at Thanksgiving dinner.
Snap a photo on your new iPhone4 and compare whose teeth and tongue are evidence to having sampled Stained Tooth Syrah from Dusted Valley Vintners.
Tour the Northwest’s largest wine store, Wine World, with over 6,000 wines from around the world.
There will be eight wineries pouring from 6:30-8:30 for a suggested donation of $10/person, not to mention a chance to win a few prizes, such as two tickets to 20something in November!
I would also like to thank the following wineries for taking the time from harvest to pour!
- Castillo de Feliciana Vineyard & Winery
- Dusted Valley Vintners
- Gård Vintners
- Latah Creek
- Robert Ramsay Cellars
- Vin du Lac
- Columbia Crest
We look forward to mingling with you on October 27th! Cheers!Tags: charity, tweet up, wineup
