Taste and Tweet Bordeaux Wines Tomorrow!

Don’t forget to join our Twitter Tasting tomorrow, March 11, 7 – 8 pm ET, 6 – 7 pm CT or 4 - 5 pm PT. This promises to be a fun soirée with French flair as we taste the highly anticipated 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Grab your beret, pick up a bottle (or four) of the limited-time-only 2009 Bordeaux vintage and get ready to taste and tweet. We’ll lead a virtual tasting of four of the featured Bordeaux wines that represent what some experts call the best Bordeaux vintages in the last 30 years! We are excited to share these exceptional French wines at bargain prices – all under $20. We’ll also be joined by Cathy Strange, Whole Foods Market’s global cheese buyer, who will talk and tweet about an amazing selection of French cheeses that are perfect soul mates to these exquisite Bourdeaux wines. Check out details for the Twitter Tasting and get ready to taste and tweet. It’s easy and ever so tasty! You can follow us on Twitter @WFMWineGuys and #WFMWine and check with local stores for Twitter Tasting events. To guide you in the tasting, we’ve designed a Bordeaux Twitter Tasting sheet so before the tasting begins, print out the tasting sheet so you can make notes about your favorites. As you sip and swirl, we want to hear from you! Share your thoughts on TweetChat or use the hashtag #WFMWine with your tweets if you use TweetDeck or another tool. Follow @WFMWineGuys and #WFMWine to see what others have to say about the wines. What should you tweet? Whatever comes to mind as you taste the wines and cheeses! Feel free to comment on the smell (nose), taste profile, color, price and cheese pairings. Any thoughts are welcome – tasting and enjoying wine is all about your personal preferences. We’re so excited to share these limited-time-only deals from this sought-after 2009 Bordeaux vintage. These wines will be featured for only two months at Whole Foods Market stores and are true bargains but they drink like they cost a fortune. We look forward to tasting and tweeting with you tomorrow! Cheers!
