On Thursday, Feb 11, I took part in the #CaliCabs Community Tasting Tweetup event that was created by St. Supery winery‘s resident social media guru, Rick Bakas. The event started at 5 pm PST, with Cabs from Paso Robles south to San Diego tasted from 5-5:30pm. Then Cabs from Monterey to Lodi were up. Finally, at 6-7 pm, northern Calif Cabs.
My contributions…Eden Canyon “Jolie” from Paso Robles, and cabs from Livermore Valley, a Retzlaff Vineyards and BoaVentura de Caires.
The tweets came fast and furious. At times hard to keep up with the volume. According to Rick, 172 of us on Twitter took part, generating about 2,000 tweets to 1,000,000 followers.
Many of the folks were at St. Supery winery, or at Judd’s Hill winery in Napa.
I have to say that even though I was in my living room in San Jose, I felt like I was part of the community. I even got some more followers on Twitter. (Follow me at twitter.com/winefashionista.)
The next community wine tasting will be #SauvBlanc on March 4 at 5pm PST. Hope to see you tweeting there!
