TWEBT – A Twitter Blind Tasting

June 16th, 2010

TWEBT will now happen on Sunday JULY 4th – blame the World Cup for suddenly getting interesting

A while back, I wrote an article / blog in real-time ( I was the Kiefer Sutherland of the wine world for about 90 minutes ) during a blind tasting of a wine. What made this blind tasting different was that while I was alone at my kitchen table tasting the wine, in a virtual capacity, there were many more people co-tasting with me. Through the medium of Twitter we all tasted the mystery wine and made our guesses about it being new world or old world, vintage, grape variety, country and region. All the while the supplier of the wine laughed at our guesses from the comfort of their full view of the label.

The tables are turned for now I am the supplier and I know the wine. Is it Red, White, Rose or Bubbly?
I can’t tell you as the inventors of the TWEBT, Mr. Brian Clayton and Mr. Kevin Crowley would be most upset. It’s all happening on Sunday July 4th, so you can call into Red Nose Wine in Clonmel to collect your bottle or order online here. For full OFFICIAL rules please got to Brian’s blog.

Let the guessing commence.
