We’re going to bring some of the best wine bloggers and writers in the country to Dallas in August for the first DrinkLocalWine.com conference. This will be the start of what co-founder Dave McIntyre and I hope will be an annual event that moves around the country to key regional wine states. And yes, it will be open to the public -– seminars and a Texas Twitter wine tasting included.
The details are on our new and improved Web site -– DrinkLocalWine.com, which includes a DLW blog, with links to some of the best regional wine writing in the country. We are also Twittering (may the wine gods protect the world) and we have a Facebook page. We’re at 300 fans in just three days on Facebook, and I don’t understand that at all. (I’m not complaining -– I just don’t understand it.)
I’ll have more on the conference as we get closer to the date. Everyone is welcome -– we’ll have registration information in six weeks or so. But we already have commitments from some of the top regional wine people in the country, including winemakers, growers, sommeliers, and writers, to speak.
And you know something? Even the Wine Curmudgeon is excited about this. And how often does that happen?
