It’s that awesome time again when the Wine 2.0 (Twitter) folks gear up and take over San Francisco! Wine 2.0 San Francisco Expo is taking place on Thursday April 2nd and if it’s anything like their past events…it’s going to be a killer wine shindig! Indeed, my introduction into the 2.0 movement of wine events was the very first event I covered for WineLog. I’ve been to a number of others, including the last one that Smoke (Twitter), Cornelius and others held at Crushpad (Twitter), the site of this year’s event, as well.
Wine 2.0 along with others are leading the way for the new direct to consumer and social networking outreach in the wine industry. Their social network on the Ning platform has quickly gained large participation and their many industry/consumer mixed events have proven to be a major success over the last few years.
This year’s SF Expo will again feature many, many wineries including plenty of the premier, hard-to-visit boutique wineries that I’ve come to expect at their events. You can also anticipate a number of speakers, symposiums and various other consumer and industry wine and food companies presenting their artisanal offerings during this special night.
I’m very excited to be attending and proud to announce that WineLog.net is one of the media sponsors for the Bloggers’ Lounge, debuted at ZAP 2009, a spot for all of us winebloggers to set up our laptops and blog in real-time during the event! All of the details are below…come find me when you arrive.
