Just a reminder that tomorrow night I'll be co-hosting a live Twitter
tasting of four cabernet franc-based Finger Lakes wines as a part of TasteLive.
My co-hosts are the folks from Finger Lakes Wine Country (FLWC) and at least two of the winemakers whose wines we'll be tasting.
FLWC launched a TasteLive page
a month or so ago, and this will be the first event to really kick off
the page. There will be many more, so stay tuned for more announcements.
For this edition, we'll be tasting these four wines (in this order) starting at 8 p.m. ET:
- Fox Run Vineyards 2007 Cabernet Franc/Lemberger
- Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards 2007 Cabernet Franc
- Rooster Hill Vineyards 2007 Cabernet Franc
- Red Newt Wine Cellars 2007 “Sawmill Creek” Cabernet Franc
Fox Run Vineyards winemaker (and frequent NYCR commenter) Peter Bell will be Tweeting under the FoxRunVineyards account and Red Newt winemaker Dave Whiting will be under his own FLWine account during the tasting.
The hashtag we'll use is #FLXwine.
