#twsTaste: A Wine Champions Tasting From The Comfort Of Your Own Home


Several Society members already use Twitter to swap their thoughts on wines purchased from The Society. Last year we explored this idea a little further and hosted an online tasting of New Zealand wines, which proved very enjoyable; we hope this edition will be even more so.

Join us for an online guided tasting of two of the 2015 Wine Champions on Thursday 2nd July from 7.30pm-8.30pm UK time.

Wine Champions 2015 Tasting; The Wine SocietyMembers who use Twitter are cordially invited to crack open either or both of these wines – both of which triumphed in our extensive blind-tasting sessions to find the best of our best for drinking now – and taste along with our resident tweeters Ewan Murray and myself. This tasting is an opportunity to add your comments about the wines as we all taste together online from the comfort of our own sofas!

To take part, simply…

1) Order the wines
The two wines we will be tasting (in order), both of which can be found in our 2015 Wine Champions offer, are as follows:

Puglia Bianco, A Mano 2014 (£7.50 per bottle)
This delicious, spot-hitting crisp dry white from Italy shone in the tasting room for its modern, summery style; coupled with its friendly price tag, we therefore thought it the perfect candidate for this tasting.

3C Cariñena 2014 (£5.25 per bottle)
The cheapest of our Champions, this red bowled our tasters over with its succulent, tangy and berry-laden charms. Try for yourself and let us know what you think on the day!

To ensure delivery before we taste, please order by noon on Monday 29th June.

2) Log in, crack open the wines and enjoy!
Simply log in to Twitter from 7.30pm on the 2nd July and look up twitter.com/thewinesociety, or search via the hashtag #TWSTaste.

In advance of the tasting we suggest Twitter users follow @TheWineSociety so that you will easily see when the tasting gets going.

During the tasting feel free to add your thoughts and comments, and do let us know if you’re enjoying a particular dish with the wines too – food and wine matching tips are always welcome!

We look forward to talking to you on 2nd July.
