How to Participate?
Attend a wine bar location and find the other Tweeters with computers, tablets, or other devices. There will be coordinators at each location to help you with any questions about Twitter and Texas wine. Select any Texas wine you want and tweet with the others about it. Post photos from your wine bar and discuss the atmosphere and location.
If you cannot attend a wine bar location, enjoy tweeting from home about any Texas wines you are tasting, and interact with others doing the same at the live venues. We will also be inviting Texas wineries whose wines are available at our Twitter locations to participate. Check back on this page before the event for a list wineries and their Twitter names.
Participating wineries so far and the Twitter names are: Duchman Family Winery (@DuchmanWinery), Messina Hof (@Messina_Hof), Bending Branch Winery (@BBranchWinery), Cap*Rock Winery (@CaprockWinery), and Julie Kuhlken from Pedernales Cellars (@JulieKuhlken).
