Well folks, August 2011 marks the 3rd anniversary of the blog’s Virtual Tastings. To recap, each month I pick a single wine and we taste and talk about it on a specific date using a designated hashtag on Twitter. Join us!

To celebrate the third anniversary of the Virtual Tastings as well as the Summer of Riesling, August’s wine will be the 2010 Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling. This wine retails for $9 and is widely available. The tasting will take place Thursday August 25th from 7-8pm Pacific.

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 between 7 and 8pm using the hashtag #stemichelle. For those on Twitter, follow me @wawinereport.

Hope you will join us!
