Tuesday July 26th, my husband and I participated in a

Virtual Wine Tasting Event Which was hosted by   http://winetwits.com

Georges Duboeuf’s Export Director Yann Bourigault and Chef Bob Waggoner, host of PBS’s Ucook with Chef Bob, conducted  a live Beaujolais and Burger Tasting on Tuesday, July 26 from 8:00PM EST, which was also streamed out to hundreds of other tastemakers from around the country. Chef Bob demonstrated three mouth watering burger creations, and Yann paired each burger with a fantastic Beaujolais from the cellar of Georges Duboeuf.  Contd…http://winetwits.com/events/5931

What is a Virtual Wine Tasting you might ask…..?

How did we participate in a Virtual Tasting?

WineTwits.com shipped 3 Bottles of the selected wine with wine tasting placemats, information on each wine to be tasted and recipes for the burger/sliders to be paired with each wine.

We were instructed to sign on http://winetwits.com   a little bit prior to the start time, have our burgers ready for the tasting/pairing and be ready to tweet as we followed Yann Bourigault and Chef Bob Waggoner live during the live tasting/pairing.

This was both I and my husband’s first ever virtual event and we thoroughly enjoyed it.  There was tremendous participation virtually and the tweets were flying as we all followed along tasting our creations and sipping each wine.

We enjoyed listening to the live stream and reading the tweets from all who participated.  I also received tweets from people in my stream wanting to know what was going on with this hash tagged event.  I then had the opportunity to answer briefly with a tweet.

I applaud http://winetwits.com, Export Director Yann Bourigault and Chef Bob Waggoner, host of PBS’s Ucook with Chef Bob for a successful Event.

I recommend stopping by http://winetwits.com

And/or Twitter http://twitter.com/#!/WineTwits and perhaps consider attending an Event either virtually or Live!

  4. I am speechless. This can be a excellent weblog and really attractive too. Great paintings! That’s no longer really a lot coming from an amateur publisher like me, nevertheless it’s all I could say after diving into your posts. Nice grammar and vocabulary. No longer like different blogs. You truly realize what you?re talking about too. So much that you made me wish to explore more. Your blog has become a stepping stone for me, my friend.

    • Thank You for your comments. BTW these are images of actual Roses I Design. These are not paintings 🙂 Stop by again!
