Last night's Taste Texas Twitter tasting with Mandola Estate Winery was a big success, with over 50 people tweeting more than 500 times about the wines of this Texas Hill Country winery. In addition to those who were tweeting about the wines, there were tweetups being held all around the state.
The fun thing about any wine tasting is the people that you share the wine with, and this event was no exception. I had a great time sharing these wines with some friends here in West Texas, and I also enjoyed getting to spend some time talking about Mandola wines with a host of fun peeps online. Thanks so much to the featured guest bloggers who participated in the event:
Also, at the risk of leaving some wonderful people out, I would like to say a special thanks to some additional people who helped out with making this event such a great success:
- A couple of great peeps from Austin – Denise Fraser and McKinzey Crossland
- The folks at Deep South Magazine
- Brian Kirby from TheOther46 blog
And last, but certainly not least, thanks to Bill Elsey and Dave Reilly from Mandola for taking the time to share their wines with us, and answer all of our questions. It was great having the opportunity to work with them on this tasting.
I will be posting my reviews on the four wines that we tasted on Monday, but it's rapidly approaching 2:00 am here in Texas as I'm writing this, and my eyes are telling me that it's bedtime. Adios!
