I'm exited to announce today that I'll be co-hosting a live Twitter tasting of four cabernet franc-based Finger Lakes wines as a part of TasteLive. My co-hosts are the folks from Finger Lakes Wine Country (FLWC), who have definitely embraced new and social media more than any other New York wine organization.
FLWC launched a TasteLive page a month or so ago, and this will be the first event to really kick off the page. There will be many more, so stay tuned for more announcements.
For this edition, we'll be tasting these four wines:
- Fox Run Vineyards 2007 Cabernet Franc/Lemberger
- Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards 2007 Cabernet Franc
- Red Newt Wine Cellars 2007 “Sawmill Creek” Cabernet Franc
- Rooster Hill Vineyards 2007 Cabernet Franc
Too often, people dismiss red wines from the Finger Lakes, but I think participants are in for some surprises with these wines, even though I've only tasted two of the four myself.
