White Wines Live Blogging Haikus

081515cOne of the sessions at the annual Wine Bloggers Conference is a blogging session of white wines. Winemakers from the Finger Lakes wineries were on hand to pour a wine and talk about it in just five minutes. The bloggers multi-task. Listening to the winemaker, tasting the wine and blogging, all within the five-minute time frame. Once over, the winemaker takes his wine to another table and the process is repeated. For this session, I have resorted to writing Haikus. The poetry fits nicely in a tweet and once starting I usually can get on a roll.
