This Saturday, our two tasting rooms (Lytton Springs & Monte Bello) will be hosting members of our ATP Wine Program for an After-Hours Event, celebrating the launch of our new 2008 Buchignani Ranch Carignane. Every vintage, this 100% solo-varietal old-vine Carignane is one of our most highly anticipated releases, and based on our own preliminary tastings, this is a vintage that should exceed every expectation.
This particular event is going to have an extra-special twist; it’ll be a TasteLive event! Meaning, you, and you, and you, and you, and you, are encouraged to tweet along in real-time while you taste with other Ridge fans in the Virtual Ridge Tasting Room online. Have an iPhone? Bring it along, and tweet from your own device! No smart phone? No problem! We’ll have a way for you to tweet on-site! Can’t make it to the event in person? No problem! Our very own social media maven and brand-new-momma Melissa Baker has made it easy for EVERYONE to join in the fun! Here’s what she has to say:
You can taste along with us at http://www.tastelive.com/ridgevineyards. Once you create your free account with TasteLive you can post your tasting notes and questions directly onto our page and see what others have to say!
Following the conversation is easy– You can either log onto http://www.tastelive.com/ridgevineyards (do this before the event starts) and follow and tweet from there, or just mark / tag your tweets with the hashtag #ridgewines . Then follow the tag on your twitter application of choice.
So if you’re an ATP member, and you’re going to be anywhere near Lytton Springs or Monte Bello this Saturday evening, make sure to join us in our tasting rooms, and be ready to TasteLive!
