March 2, 2010 at 2:15 pm

If you’re on Twitter, you should probably check out this event. Black Star Farms, a Michigan winery, is teaming up with @MichByTheBottle, for the first ever Tweet and Taste, a virtual tasting event to be held on this Monday, March 8th, at 7:00 pm CST. Join the winemaker, a master sommelier and several local wine bloggers as they explore a select group of wines from Black Star Farms and share their impressions on Twitter. If you’d like to participate in the tasting, you can order Black Star Farm’s wines (they are offering $0.01 shipping if you use the code TWEETNTASTE at checkout), and chime in with your impressions on Twitter with the other participants.

On Monday, log on to Twitter, and search for the term, #ttmi (the hashtag all participants will attach to their tweets discussing the wine). Full details are at So far, there are 65 confirmed participants. It should be a fun and unique way to discuss local wine.

As an aside, Black Star Farms’ 2006 Arcturos Pinot Noir was part of a tasting that I recently held (and which will be written about soon on The Local Beet), and it performed above the pack of other local wines. So, even if you don’t plan to participate in the tasting, this would be a good opportunity to take advantage of Black Star Farm’s shipping special for Tweet and Taste, and try some of their wine.
