Why: for fun, to get together and explore wine with like-minded Finger Lakes wine geeks
I’ve had the idea to start a local wine tasting Meet Up or tasting group for some time now. With a few more Finger Lakes wine industry members jumping into conversations on Twitter, I thought it would be fun to blaze forth with a Tweetup. In this case, it will be a mini-Tweetup because the Sheldrake vertical tasting has limited seating, so for the next one we’ll work to include more tweeps (people on Twitter). Ideas welcome.
Thanks to Tom Mansell of Ithacork blog for coming up with the Sheldrake tasting idea. Watch Twitter on Sunday afternoon …you may see some live TwitPics and tweets. More details on the next Finger Lakes Wine Tweetup soon.
