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).
