Two Wines for the Hugel Twitter tasting

Mr Hugel himself kindly arranged for samples to be dispatched so us UK wine bloggers (myself and The Wine Conversation at least) can join in the fun of next Thursdays Twitter wine tasting. So have wines, will Twitter!

Organised by a new American retailer (Bin Ends Wine) the idea is that a host of twitterer's will taste and debate the wines in unison. Bin End Wines offers the wines at a discount I believe to those who wish to join in the fun across the States.

Also participating will be Etienne Hugel himself. Lets hope Etienne can provide some illuminating info even when limited to Twitters 140 characters per tweet!

The plan is for me to lug the wines (Hugel's Gentil 2006 (sold in the UK as Les Fleurs d'Alsace), Pinot Blanc 2006, Gewürztraminer 2005, Riesling Jubilee 2004 and Gewürztraminer VT 2001) up to London and join Rob of The Wine Conversation for a evening of fine Alsace wine and delicious food. And the blogging/twittering too of course.

You can follow the tasting on twitter (adding such wine gurus as Wanna Be Wino, Tim of WineCast, Ryan and Gabriella of Catavino, Dale of Drinks Are On Me, and Joe of 1 Wine Dude to your list of friends. And not forgetting BinEndsWine and Etienne Hugel too).

Looking forward to it!

Still have to decide on the menu so I have time to buy things in. I assume you will be bringing your culinary skills with you? Can you pack them in too??

This looks like a lot of fun!

I've been on twitter for about 4 months now and I was wondering if anyone in the wine industry was taking advantage of the format. After all, it is the equivalent of an online dinner table with quick comments thrown back and forth over the meal and drink. I'm glad to see this taking place.

I want to follow the conversations, but what day and time is this taking place?

The 'event' is Thursday 21st August 2008. I'm a bit vague on the actual timing - late evening UK time I think...

I'm afraid that last time it started at midnight UK time!!

I'm not entirely sure of timings for this one, but I'd guess around the same.

I think I'll join in if I can find the right wine.

Everyone in the UK: We're very excited to have you on board, as is Etienne! Thanks for staying up late!!

A late night across the pond! Looking forward to seeing your reactions via twitter.

And I will be there in spirit! (multiple meaning intended!)
