I will be participating with other wine bloggers from around the country for the third installment of Finger Lakes Wine with Taste Live on Twitter. This event is sponsored by Finger Lakes Wine Country and moderated by Lenn Thompson of The New York Cork Report. And the host winery on Long Island will be Shinn Estate Vineyards.
In previous months we have tasted Cabernet Franc and Sparkling wine. This month the topic of our tasting and tweeting will be Finger Lakes Pinot Noir. There will be five Pinot Noir wines we will be tasting through, here is a run down:
- Atwater Estate Vineyards 2007 Pinot Noir
- Damiani Wine Cellars 2008 Pinot Noir
- Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards 2008 Pinot Noir
- Heart & Hands Wine Company 2008 Pinot Noir
- Ravines Wine Cellars 2007 Pinot Noir
I am not too familiar with pinot noir, it is not something I have very often, mainly because it is not widely grown and bottled on Long Island. This will be interesting for me.
Once again you can participate in this event by visiting the vineyards website to purchase the wine. Of you can visit your wine shop and see if they have any. Or just open your favorite Pinot and pour along with us.
Remember it dos not cost any thing to participate, just a twitter account and make sure your search and follow the hash tag #flxwine.
See you in Twitterville on Wednesday!
