The Second Great Twitter Blind Wine Tasting Event
More From: Curious Facts & Fun
Posted January 22nd, 2010 by Michael Kane
Following on from the success – oh, well ok, the sheer good craic – of the Twitter Event Blind Tasting (twebt) experiment by Brian Clayton and Kevin Crowley back in November, we were honoured and delighted to be asked to pick and supply the second bottle to go into cyber-tasting!
The event is open to anyone and everyone who enjoys a glass of the old elixir, and having a bit of interaction and fun over the web while they’re at it. All you need is a Twitter account and a glass, and we’ve put together a special price to ensure you can participate from anywhere in country for less than €20.
The time for the synchronised tasting is Sunday 31st January at 8.00pm. All you have to do is follow Brian (@brianclayton), Kevin (@kevatfennsquay), and/or ourselves (@curiouswines), and use the tag #twebt in all your tweets. We’ll also post a revised listing of everyone registered by next Friday (29th) so you can follow everyone on the night.
Bottles will be wrapped discretely to hide the labels. The only rule is one of honour – you don’t look at the label until everyone’s tasted and compared notes. Other than that, it’s a free-for-all. Have a swirl, get your nose in, have a glug, tell the world.
I’ve selected the bottle myself and have put together a special price including delivery anywhere in the country, for just €19. You can also call into the warehouse here in Bandon and collect it over the counter for €14.
Last orders online Thursday 28th January, 1.00pm, or collect from the warehouse up to Saturday 30th, 6.00pm. Thanks a million to Brian and Kevin for organising and the kind invitation.
