Which Pinot Grigio Reigns Supreme? Barone Fini WineTwit Online Tasting.

20 Mar

Which Wine Will Prevail? 1 or 2?

Barone Fini wines and WineTwits have organized an online blind tasting on March 24 from 8-8:30 pm EST.  The tasting will be led by wine producer Giovanni Bonmartini-Fini.  This is a pretty awesome experience to take part in.  You go to the tasting website, register, and get sent two brown-bag-wrapped bottles labeled 1 and 2.  There are still some kits left–22, so don’t delay if you want to take part in this.  $30 isn’t really bad for free shipping and two bottles of Pinot Grigio!  Oh, and you just might win a trip to Venice–Venezia to my paesans.

So, how’s it work after that, what’s up with an on-line tasting?  You’ll watch a discussion on winetwits.com and may even have a chance to ask a question or two to Giovanni!  Also, you’ll tweet your tasting notes with the hashtag #tastingchallenge to @winetwits.  So, you can look through the twitterverse and see what other people think about each wine and which one they prefer.  I wonder what kind of differences in these wines people will notice because the bottle that is not Barone Fini is about twice the cost.  :)  Be sure to follow along with @OmNomCT during the tasting challenge.  If you’re taking part, let us know, and we’ll tweet it up together.

    I’m looking forward to the results – the Barone Fini from Alto Adige may be appearing on our wine list!

      Sweet! I’m interested to see what the other wine is that they’ve included! :) What’s good about the Barone Fini is that it’s pretty affordable, so it could be a real go-to wine. I’ll let you know what I think of those wines.
