Rhone #WineChat with Rhone Rangers Sonoma William & guest Randall Grahm
Wednesday, March 20, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (PDT)
This Wednesday from 6-7 pm Pacific, the weekly #winechat is dedicated to American Rhone wines, as a special kick off to the coming weekends "Weekend Celebration of American Rhones" in San Francisco March 22-23rd - #RRSF.
Hosting this week is 'Sonoma William' - blogger & garagiste turned commercial Vintner, for Two Shepherds - recently named by Wine Business Monthly as Top Ten Hot Brand for 2013, with special guest Rhone legend and icon Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyards. The Rhone Rangers will also be in attendance & supporting.
How to Participate, What to Bring
The event takes place entirely on Twitter, under the hashtag #winechat.
We recommend you use a Twitter platform like Hootsuite or Tweetdeck, with a column that pre-sorts the Hashtag, but you may also follow along via search.twitter.com and search on #winechat.
See Diagram below for Tweetdeck on a MAC or PC setup.
What to bring? Questions, discussion points, and if you'd like open a bottle of domestic Rhone wine, red, white, rose' or blend, and share your thoughts.
Please Note, Domestic Wine Focus
The Rhone Rangers is the largest non profit organization of Domestic Rhone wines & producers. We of course love French wine, and will discuss the grapes from the Rhone valley, but ask that you bring a domestic Rhone to the tasting if you can.
Our upcoming Mar 22-23rd Weekend is the biggest Rhone tasting in the US, with Seminars, Winemaker dinner, Trade & Consumer tasting.
We hope you will come Rhone with us!
