Here's how it worked... you voted, I drank... and then I drank a little more!

This week, I welcomed some new technology to help us share a bottle. Introducing a new way to see The Wine Whore that I like to call 'The Wine Whore Television (TWWTV). Click the TWWTV icon here (or any of these icons) to connect with me at any time for a drink or even just to chat:

Never Wine Alone:
Wine is more fun when shared with the company of others. Join me every Wednesday @ 6:30pm ET for the virtual tasting via Twitter, Facebook, and now TWWTV. Keep reading to find out how this week's tasting went down...


Geek Out with Some Vintage Info:



"Premium grapes sourced from the North Coast region of California. The Roussanne imparts a concentrated and viscous mouthfeel with apricot and honey aromas. Sauvignon Blanc & Muscat Blanc provide the citrus notes and bright acidity. The Chardonnay added minerality to the palate and tropical aromas making this wine very well balanced.

The Roussanne and Chardonnay are barrel fermented while the Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat Blanc are stainless steel fermented. A third of the Chardonnay went through ML and 100% for the Roussanne."

Sorry I can't get to see this live (I still have to work for a living). Would like to be quest. Of course airfare, hotel, per diem would be quite high, so I'll wait for a few episodes to succeed and then apply. Nice job for first time out!!
