Corkd: Are Twitter Tasting Events Worth It?

Today’s DrinkNectar post is featured on Cork’d. Head over there and check out the story about Twitter wine tasting events. Cork’d is becoming a fantastic resource for wine news and I’m proud to be a part of it.   Twitter wine tasting events are changing the wine community. I had the honor of co-sponsoring #WAMerlot and saw firsthand the power of the online community. As a wine brand, these events offer little or no cost opportunities for brand impressions, building your customer base and interacting with your existing customers. As a wine consumer, they provide an opportunity learn, engage and […]

In My Opinion, Your Opinion Sucks

In My Opinion, Your Opinion Sucks While not always successful, I try to live by a few key phrases: “Will it matter a month from now (or even a year from now)?” ~ Worry “The greatest treasure is having someone to share it with” ~ Family “All things are permissible but not all things are beneficial” ~ Balance Lately I’ve been thinking about two other principles as they relate to blogging, twitter and wine.

Nectar Monthly Honors March

March came in like a lion and went out like a lion. An all time high of 30 posts with 28 formal wine reviews made for a busy month.

It’s pretty inspiring to think that the two main Twitter events for March could have driven sales upwards of 350 cases of wine and millions of […]

Now, don’t get me wrong, drinking wine with James @winecentury or Joe @suburbanwino is far from sexy, but wine is the sexiest beverage there is.

The Buy Local Wine Challenge

Buy Local! It makes sense supporting local businesses; higher profit margins, more money stays in the local economy and the capacity to create jobs increases. For the New Year, I vocalized my desire to buy more of my wine locally. I am extending this challenge to all of my wino friends. The resolution is not to buy ALL of my wine locally, just more of it. I commit, where possible and when fiscally responsible (I’ll explain later) to purchase most of my wine from local wine shops or directly from the winery. Who’s with me? Does it make sense? For […]
