Canadian Wine, Natalie MacLean - Food Gypsy

Drink, Eat, Tweet – Canadian Wine & Cheese with Natalie MacLean

Published On July 16, 2012 | By Gypsy | Reading & Resources, Wine

Join the conversation on Thursday, July 19th as Canada’s Natalie MacLean leads a band of merry wine and cheese lovers on a tweet-up tasting.  Learn more about wine & cheese parings, and connect with new tastes and products.  Unlike most social media invites, this one encourages consumption!

This Thursday at 8PM (EDT) meet and tweet on Canadian wine & cheese.  Natalie has collected a group of  sommeliers, writers, journalists, food lovers and… me.  Yup, little ‘ol me and I’d like to invite… you!  Here’s a link to Natalie’s website where you’ll find thousands of wine reviews and a link to the event so you can check it out for yourself.

You have no idea of the homework involved… I’m exhausted!
