Drinklocalwine.com Conference in Virginia

This past weekend has been an exciting one for Virginia wineries many of which participated in the Drinklocalwine.com conference held in Lansdowne, Virginia. The weekend began Saturday night with a special winemakers dinner (invitation only). At this dinner we met Virginia winemakers and social media bloggers and Tweeters and Facebook users. This event took place at Tuscarora Mill in Leesburg, VA and the focus was local wines and local foods.

Sunday morning we were ready for the full day of events that included three seminars followed by the Twitter Taste-off. At the Taste off, approximately 21 Virginia wineries presented one white and one red wine for Tweeters to taste and tweet about. A small table set apart from the Virginia wineries was used to showcase six Maryland wineries. We enjoyed tasting many of these fine wines and tweeting about them.

Sunday evening we enjoyed another winemakers dinner with the focus on local wine and local food at the restaurant in Purcellville, Magnolia’s at the Mill restaurant.

This morning we are on our way to three Virginia wineries we have not had the opportunity of visiting. They are open for the media who participated in the drinklocalwine conference between 10 and 2pm.
