Four Seasons to host Twitter wine tasting

Social media just got a little sexier.

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts are bringing the fine art of wine tasting to Twitter on Nov. 17.

Join three Four Seasons sommeliers in a virtual wine tasting using the hashtag #FSWine. Sommeliers James Tidwell, Mark Sayre and Dana Farner will lead participants in a guided tasting of three distinct wines – Loosen Bros. Dr. L Riesling, Paraiso Syrah and Chappellet Mountain Cuvee. They’ll discuss each wine and its unique flavors, how to pair them with seasonal dishes and tips for weaving the wines into holiday menus. The virtual wine event will end with a question and answer session.

So how does one actually *taste* the wine if it’s virtual? Buy the wines yourself, or head to a Four Seasons hotel for a “tweetup” during the event, where participants can sample the wines and mingle in person while also conversing over Twitter. Tweetups will be held in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Las Colinas, Houston, Miami, New York City, Palm Beach, Philadelphia, St. Louis and Toronto.

If you can’t make it to one of the hotels, log on to Twitter at 7 p.m. Eastern time Nov and search for the hashtag #FSWine. To ensure that comments and questions are woven into the conversation, include the #FSWine hashtag with each tweet.
