If anyone ever asks me how to plan a successful event, I always advise to pit it against a considerably larger event going on at the same time. Tonight, we tilt at windmills on #cabernet day (oops). Consider this your white wine intermezzo if you must!

The August Virtual Tasting is tonight! The wine is the 2011 Milbrandt Vineyards Traditions Pinot Gris. This wine retails for $13 and is widely available. The tasting will take place 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. Tweet your comments about the wine on Twitter between 7 and 8pm Pacific tonight using the hashtag #milbrandt. For those on Twitter, follow me @wawinereport.
