November’s #TXwine Twitter Tuesday will actually be held on Thursday, November 13. This change comes as our normal #TXwine Twitter event will be celebrating International Tempranillo Day along with many other Tempranillo lovers on that Thursday.
Many people have called Tempranillo “the signature red grape of Texas.” Tempranillo certainly appears to be doing well here, but what better way to ascertain its status and reflect on its future in Texas versus the rest of the world than to taste, tweet and chat with others both inside and outside our great state.
No specific Texas Tempranillos will be featured in this Twitter event. So, feel free to find one, two, or a few of your favorite Texas Tempranillos (TEXAS on the label) and share your thoughts and tasting experiences with the event’s participants.
Jeff Cope and Russ Kane will lead this #TXwine Twitter chat and help moderate the discussion as we enjoy a few of our favorite Tempranillos. Denise Clarke will be hosting friends at her house for a fun time together to enjoy Tempranillos, so you may want to consider doing the same.
Join us for the November #TXwine Twitter chat on November 13th from 7-8 p.m. CST. Grab your favorite Tempranillo and we look forward to seeing you for a night of tasting and tweeting.
Please remember to include #TXwine and for this event #TempranilloDay in your tweets so everyone participating in the chat can see your tweets!
Denise, Jeff, Jessica, Russ, and Daniel
