WBC09: It's here! Well, the Twisted Pre-Party, Anyway!

WBC09 DesktopThe 2nd Annual North American Wine Bloggers’ Conference is almost here, starting tomorrow!  It is again at the Flamingo in Santa Rosa, CA, deep in the Sonoma Valley.  Last year’s inaugural conference exploded the reach and understanding of wine bloggers, wine & social media and their effect on the wine biz.  It also had a profound effect on myself and my own understanding of social media, blogs and wine.  Starting things off, however is a pre-party at Twisted Oak and downtown Murphy’s, courtesy of that crazy vinoman, El Jefe, Jeff Stai (Twitter)!

Twisted Oak WineryWe’re going to be touring the Twisted campus, tasting plenty of their wines as well as touring the main wine drag in Murphys, hitting many different winery tasting rooms that are plentiful.  That’s followed by a BBQ at Twisted Oak Tasting Room and a secret blending session to finish out the night.  Woot!

Look for plenty of crazy posting over the next four days, minimal editing as I’ll be posting on the fly, live and lots of really great wine adventures.  Enjoy!
