#VinoChat – We’re Talking About Wine!

When: Every Thursday 9pm Eastern Time (6pm Pacific) weekly.

Join the Chat here: http://VinoPete.com/chat


One of the Top 3 Wine chats on the internet!

*Including #SommChat and #WineChat

Also join the #VinoChat Facebook Group now and keep the conversation going all week long!:


The topic and other info for each week will be published on the #VinoChat page here as well.  The chat will cover a different kind of wine each week.  I will also post a review of a favorite bottle coordinated with the chat on VinoPete.com too.

Each week we will talk about a different wine topic or entertain a special guest.  All you need to attend is a Twitter account and an interest in wine!

You can use your Twitter account and client to post using the hashtag #VinoChat during the chat.  Even better I recommend using Tweetchat or Twebevent.  Stats for each chat will be made available after each chat thanks to Hashtracking.com.

Vino Pete is off to visit the Niagara Escarpment AVA!  Great photos of Harvest 2012 here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152120893500503.915091.501670502&type=1

From Wikipedia

“There are now 16 wineries making up the Niagara Wine Trail. This wine region is less developed with more open spaces than the 70 or so Niagara Peninsula wineries (known for Ice Wine!) on the Canadian side of the Niagara Riverbut shares the same terroir. Wines range from traditional varietals such as Merlot, Cabernets, Chardonnays and Rieslings to fruit wines.”
