(Forgive me, having a little illumation moment there...) A really big Twitter Taste Live event is scheduled for November 21st. What is Twitter Taste Live? It's a monthly (sometime bi-weekly, sometimes weekly) virtual live wine tasting event, and it is the brain-child of Bin Ends Wine.
Who can participate in Twitter Taste Live? You! Me! Everybody!
This is a really special TTL because Humanitas Wines, LENNDEVOURS.com, Twittermoms.com, and drinkcharitably.com have joined to bring Drink Charitably to Twitter Taste Live! The wines for the event can be purchased directly from Humanitas for $45 and include:
2006 Sauvignon Blanc-Monterey
2007 Chardonnay "Oak Free"-Monterey
2006 Cabernet Sauvignon-Paso Robles
Who will benefit from your participation in Drink Charitably? Humanitas donates all the profits from their wine sales to chapters of America's Second Harvest, Habitat for Humanity and Reading is Fundamental in the wine purchaser's local region! So, the beneficiaries of your participation are your local community and YOU!
What do you have to do to participate? You will need a free Twitter account, and you'll want to follow @LENNDEVOURS, @twittermoms, and @binendswine at a minimum (oh, and @smellslikegrape!) You can also track all the hip hashtag action on the live #ttl stream over on the official Twitter Taste Live site. There's also a complete list there of participants to follow on Twitter. Alright, this post is positively lousy with links so, I'm going to stop now. Just one last thing: These events are fun, fun, fun! Where else can you taste wines with a bunch of cool bloggers and wine lovers from the comfort of your own home?
