Anyone can join us for Saturday’s online tasting!

By Jesse on June 9, 2009

This Saturday, we’ve got a Young Winos first — a nationwide tasting conducted completely online.  At 4pm Pacific (7pm Eastern), Winos near and far will be gathering in four local chapters across the country and opening up four bottles of the same wine, the 2004 Azamor Red from Alentejo, Portugal. As the intrepid Winos sniff and sip, they’ll type their responses, questions, and tasting notes in the chat room at youngwinos.com. Also joining the chat will be winemaker Alison Luiz-Gomes of Azamor, and importer Tempe Reichardt of Bibola.com, who can answer any questions the participants may have.

If Patch here can figure out how to use the chat room, then hopefully those San Francisco kids can do it too!  (Hahahaha…. oh boy.  No, but they’re really not very smart.)

The wine in question is a delicious one — we tasted it last month — so the whole experience should be really cool.  The problem, of course, is that it’s only one bottle.  That’s why the LA chapter has decided to follow-up the online tasting with a classic early-summer, late-afternoon, wine-potluck / barbecue / dinner party hybrid. Is there any other kind?
