Dear Bacchus, July 20, 2012

This rebirth of cool climate chardonnay festival kicks off in Niagara today: find out about the event and the latest Google + video chat about this style of wine. You'll also find those lovely wines in the this week's picks.   

Speaking of chardonnay, that was one of several wines we tasted last night on Twitter with Canadian cheeses. A terrific group of wine tasters shared thoughts on the pairings and lots of laughs in a live tweet-up that everyone could join. (They had a whey with curds.)
Most amazingly, our discussion trended #1 on Twitter: it was the most discussed topic on Twitter worldwide, more popular than Jay-Z, Mitt Romney's wife and pop culture icons. Smokin!

PS Join us this Wednesday at 8 pm as we get together again for Canada's first-ever, live Google + video group wine tasting.
