Red and Rosé Wines Live Blogging Haikus

081615aOn our second day of the Wine Bloggers Conference, it was time for the winemakers to speed taste their red or rosé wines. The winemakers had five minutes to pour and talk about their wines to the bloggers that were typing away tweeting, trying in ernest to type less than 140 characters as they listened to the winemakers and tasted the wine. It does take some practice for the winemakers. They are trying to talk about their wines and at times it looks like their captive audience is not paying attention. In reality, the bloggers are multi-tasking. Paying attention is one of their tasks and although they may be typing, they are still listening. As with the white wines, I wrote a haiku for each of the red or rosé wines tasted.
