The Buzz: American Pinot Noir Tasting with Jordan Mackay

I'm starting to think that Twitter Taste Live is going to take over the world (sort of in a Google/Facebook type of way)... and I LOVE IT! I love it almost as much as I love overusing the ellipse and sippin' on a fabulous Pinot Noir, which leads me to my segway...

For WinoBees needing a little sumpin-sumpin' to do this weekend, wine writer extradonaire, Jordan Mackay (who wrote “Passion for Pinot: A Journey Through America’s Pinot Noir Country”) will host an online winetasting of American Pinot Noirs this Saturday, March 14, 2009, at 8 p.m. EST.

Wine lovers are encouraged to join this interactive, educational wine tasting event via Twitter Taste Live. How's it work? A live video stream at will allow tasting attendees to follow Mackay’s educational tour through the finest Pinot Noirregions of California and Oregon. Participants can also ask questions through the Web site’s real-time Twitter feed.
