Join the world in raising a glass of Chardonnay on May 6, 2010! All day, around the world, people will be tasting Chardonnay and sharing their impressions with other wine lovers worldwide. From the big, rich buttery chardonnays to the crisp, fruity chardonnays you can find a Chardonnay to match almost any palate, if you know where to look and what to pair. That is what this Worldwide Chardonnay Virtual Tasting, sponsored by Rick Bakas, is all about. This virtual tasting is defined to celebrate and educate about the diversity and possibilities of Chardonnay from around the world. I will let others espouse the virtues and styles of Chardonnay while we focus on Washington Chardonnay.

One of our favorite things is to do, is to invite friends to bring some tasty tidbits to pair with a variety of wines that we provide. Mix and match to find your favorite pairings. Here are some suggestions:

How to join the Virtual Tasting

As Rick Bakas states, all you need is some Chardonnay and access to Twitter.

  • RSVP  via EventBrite, not required but it is fun to see the different regions of the world represented
  • Use your own Twitter account or access a shared tasting Twitter account, available at some public tastings. (Note: due to our crazy schedules, we will NOT be hosting a public tasting this time, sorry)
  • Drink your Chardonnay and share your tasting impressions with the world utilizing the hashtag #Chardonnay
  • Follow along the conversation by setting a Twitter search to #Chardonnay, using Tweetdeck, Seesmic, Twitterfall or so you can read what others are drinking.
