Tomorrow starting at 6PM the Finger Lakes Wine Alliance is sponsoring the official release of Finger Lakes Riesling from the 2011 vintage. There will be tastings held across the state and you will have an excellent opportunity to taste right here on Long Island.
Empire State Cellars will be hosting a Virtual Tasting starting at 6pm. Lenn Thompson founder and publisher of The New York Cork Report and I will be offering folks an opportunity to taste these Riesling in a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere.
Yes, you will be able to taste these wine in person, but here is how the virtual tasting comes into play. You will be tasting with others from across the globe the same wines at the same time and you can interact with the winemakers and vintners via Facebook, twitter, instagram and any other social media outlet that you use.
If you are on Facebook, make sure you “like” Finger Lakes Wine so you can post your favorites and ask questions.
If you are on twitter, make sure you use the hashtag #flxwine when talking about the Riesling you are drinking
And if you use Instagram, make sure you tag your photo with #flxwine.
This should be fun and most importantly educational. It would be great to see you tomorrow at Empire State Cellars in Tanger 1 (next to the food court). But if you can’t make it, make sure you have a bottle of Finger Lakes Riesling and taste and tweet, post and photo right along with us!
See you tomorrow at Empire State Cellars or online!
