I mentioned last week that the Twitter Moms were having a wine tasting. The chosen wine was Panarroz Red "06 that apparently was available at BevMo...and nowhere else. I didn't even know what BevMo was but typed it in and found out they could ship me the Panarroz (priced at $8.99) for $13.41 shipping, regular mail. But since I found this out the day before the actual tasting, it would have cost me $35 to ship over night. I couldn't justify paying $44 for a $9 bottle of wine. I contemplated not going (or logging in) since part of the allure for me was to actually discuss the wine, but I decided to join in anyway...and I'm glad I did. It was a total blast. Only like 3 people had the actual wine, some weren't even drinking wine. We talked about our individual wines, legs, quail (someone was actually making that for dinner. Boy, I need to step up my cooking game.), pizza and lots of other stuff. It was an enjoyable evening and I will definitely be attending the next...with the right wine.
Below is an excerpt from the evening. Thought you might enjoy. People were just showing up as they saw the tweets. Someone even tweeted to others how funny a wine tasting looks in print. Good times.
