This Friday night, I'll be hosting This Twitter Taste Live for the first time, featuring the wines from Humanitas Wines. Owner-winemaker Judd Wallenbrock is someone I've known for years via email and this blog, and I really love what he's doing with this project.
He makes small batches of wines (literally in his garage) and donates all of the profits to charity. All. Of. The. Profits.
As we head into the holiday season, how can you not love the idea of a winery doing something like that?
This Drink Charitably edition of Twitter Taste live is a joint venture between Humanitas Wines, LENNDEVOURS.com, Twittermoms.com, drinkcharitably.com and Twitter Taste LIVE. We'll be bringing together members of the wine blogging community, wine trade and consumers all over the world for what we hope becomes one of the largest online wine tastings in history.
We'll be tasting four of Judd's wines:
- 2006 Sauvignon Blanc (Monterey)
- 2007 Chardonnay "Oak Free" (Monterey)
- 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles)
- 2006 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)
At this point, it's too late for you to order the wines for Friday, but I'd still encourage you to buy them for the holidays. They make a great gift because of the great story behind them and the juice is pretty darn good too.
The first three can be purchased and shipped as a 3-bottle pack directly from the winery for just $45.
Buy them today.
And the pinot can be bought directly from Humanitas as well.
Buy it today.
And please make sure that you follow all of the action on Twitter at 8 p.m. on Friday. You can follow me here.
