Got that wineoclock feeling but not sure what to have? Fed up with drinking the same old thing? We’re here to help! We are really excited to announce our first ever BMB wine twitter tasting, taking place on the 31st March from 8 – 9 pm.
The format is simple. Starting at 8pm, we will taste through a selection of three wines including a sparkling, a white and a red wine. All of the wines have been selected by fellow BMB member and wine expert Helen McGinn (@knackeredmutha). She’ll guide us through the wines answering any questions you might have as we go whilst we swirl, sip, slurp and swap notes.
What do I have to do to take part?
- Be on Twitter at 8pm on the 31st March
- Buy one, two or all three wines to be tasted before the tasting starts
- Find us using the twitter hashtag #bmbwinetasting
- During the tasting please add #bmbwinetasting to any tweets so we can track the conversation
- Direct any questions any time during the tasting to Helen using @knackeredmutha
