Wine Bloggers’ Conference: Live Wine Blogging of Whites and Rosés

This is my third conference (2011, 2013, and 2014) and my third time participating in live wine blogging (10+ wines tasted in a hour) and I’ve never actually blogged during it. I am one of those who believes that the wines deserve a little more attention for a more thorough blog post. That being said, I do enjoy the camaraderie of the blogger participants and producers, and I also believe that what I do, which is tweet about the wine, including a photo, brief tasting notes, and some some key hashtags, at least gets the wines out there in front of a live, virtual audience.

With that explanation, below are my tweets for the 2014 live wine blogging of whites and rosés, including links to the Twitter accounts for the producers who participated. Thank you to them for allowing us to taste their wines. Next time, we will spend more than five or six minutes together, promise.
