My travels through “Winedom” has lead me to many interesting wines, places, and people. The time has come for a new adventure in “Winedom”. Social media and wine. Admittedly it is with some trepidation I approach combining social media and wine. Sure, I have dabbled in social media. I have various FB “Likes”, and “Friends” that are wineries, or otherwise related to the wine industry. I’m also active on Twitter where I follow various wineries, wine bloggers, and post reviews of the wines I drink via GrapeStories.com. But to date, I haven’t combined my love of wine and social media, mostly I suppose, because I wasn’t sure how it worked. But I’ve already missed a couple of opportunities to further immerse myself in social media and wine. Both Cabernet Day and International Grenache Day were held in September. With Global #Zinfandel Day coming up this Friday, November 19th, I can no longer resist the urge to take the plunge! I hope you will to!
Since a picture is worth a thousand words… click here for a video invitation.
In addition to posting to social media, tweet ups, and meet ups, there may be wineries in your area hosting an event and/or offering specials on Zinfandel, be it a sale, or low/no – cost shipping.
Not sure about all this? I recommend using Facebook where you can simply “like” the ZAP – Zinfandel Advocates and Producers Facebook page and participate.
So here’s what we’re going to do…we’re going to open up a bottle of 2005 Rosenblum Cellars Monte Rosso Reserve Zinfandel that we’ve holding on to for a couple of years and invite some friends by. If you’re in the area, bring a bottle of Zin and join us as we sip and socialize, virtually and live!
