Synchronized Global Wine Tasting by Sud de France - Vineyard Party

We had a fun little vineyard party.  Sud de France sent us a kit of Languedoc-Roussillon wines so that we could host a Carcassonne wine tasing.   We drank and were merry.  We did a live stream which is really lo-fi, but fun and spontaneous.  The live stream of our synchronized worldwide tasting is available at Love That Langedoc.

This is just a brief update to say we had a good time and we’ll put together a better-edited version of the tasting soon.  Thanks for all the cool people who showed up like Emma and Matthew from Vinecole, Aude Campos (our marvelous wine selling dynamo), and Mallorie from the gorgeous Chateau Bouis.

A little last minute, but I decided to have a party on Monday in the middle of the day.  I’m not expecting hundreds of people, but if you can tear yourself away from work (or your relaxing vacation), come to O’Vineyards and join me for Sud de France’s SYNCHRONIZED GLOBAL TASTING in commemoration of their 4th birthday.

sud de france global synchronized wine tasting kitThey sent kits of wine to 50 different people around the world. And they’ll be running tastings with all sorts of journalists and wine lovers at the Maisons du Languedoc in New York City, Shanghai, London, Milan, etc.  And we’ll all be tweeting and blogging and video conferencing and all sorts of nonsense.  So tune in on June 21st. Wine is going to be tasted.

And when we run out of the preselected wines Sud de France sent me, we will drink other wines from the Sud de France.

If you cannot come, please do your best to go out and find a bottle from the Languedoc Roussillon and open it on June 21st!  With good friends, if they’re around!

The tasting starts at 11 AM but you can come before or after.  If you know my mom, you realize that there will be food.

Here is an events page for the tasting (but it is not an events page for my party. It is the GLOBAL events page).
