Read the Twitter stream of my #socialwine interview by @CraigSutton where we discussed wine blogging.

In honor of spring, our April Virtual Tasting wine will be the 2009 Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling. This wine retails for $12 and is widely available. The tasting will take place on Wednesday, April 28th from 7-9pm Pacific Time.

What you need to do to participate is:

1. Buy this month’s wine from a local retailer or from the winery

2. Post your comments/tweets on the wine that night between 7 and 9pm. For those on Twitter, follow me @wawinereport. I will be using the hashtag #WAwine during the event.

Look for regular updates to the blog and comments from virtual tasters starting at 7pm on the 28th. Hope you’ll join us.
