The day is rapidly approaching (this Thursday, March 25th) for the #WAMerlot Twitter tasting that my friend Josh Wade from DrinkNectar has put together. People from all over the country will be popping the cork on some Washington Merlot, and then tweeting about the wines that they are drinking.
It's been really exciting to see the level of participation that they have been getting from wineries around the state of Washington. Last count I saw had close to 80 wineries participating in some way in the event. My opinion is that winery participation is key for these types of events. I'll be interested to see how involved the wineries are during the actual event. I would love to see representatives tweeting back and forth with the public, giving information about their wines and answering questions.
I'm really excited to be taking part in this event, and I hope that this event will be a great success for everyone involved.
