About #WiningHourChat

We enjoy wine. We also enjoy conversing and learning about different wines, wine regions, grape varietals, food and wine pairings.  As there are many experts and wine connoisseurs out there, some winelovers may hold back from participating in wine discussions because they feel intimidated or feel that they do not have anything to contribute.  Our goal is to curb those feelings and offer a venue where everyone, regardless of their experience level, has a valued voice. #WiningHourChat functions as a community of learners and winelovers. No stuffiness here, just an easygoing vinous chat.

HOWEVER, we do ask that you be courteous and respectful of #WiningHourChat, and not use this time or medium to promote your own agenda or business, unless invited to do so.  We are happy to collaborate whenever possible.

Here's our routine:

Q & A

Our Wine Rating Scale:

Very Good=  4
Good=          3
Eh, Ok=        2
Never again  1

You will know our topic in advance.  You will also be made aware of the wine region and particular wine varietal selection.  So that it is easier and adds to the diversity of the conversation, you may use whichever brand, winery, vineyard you like-it just needs to be from the specified region and specified variety. For example, if the selection is California Cabernet, you would get a (any) Cabernet from California to taste and discuss.
