The Four Seasons is getting in on the Twitter wine tasting trend, hosting its first virtual event and you don't even have to head to a Four Seasons to participate (although really, why wouldn't you?). The event takes place on November 17 and focuses on perfect pairings for the upcoming holidays and will highlight wine knowledge from three sommeliers with more than 25 years of combined experience.
James Tidwell, Co-Founder and Current Head of the Texas Sommelier Association; Mark Sayre, one of Wine & Spirits magazine's "7 Best New Sommeliers of 2010"; and Dana Farner, recognized as "one of the best around" by Bon Appétit magazine, will lead participants in a virtual guided tasting of three wines: Loosen Bros. Dr. L Riesling, Paraiso Vineyards Syrah, and the Chappellet Mountain Cuvee.
The discussion will address the unique flavor profiles of each wine and how to pair them with seasonal dishes or use them in a Thanksgiving holiday menu. The event will end with a Q & A session. To join in log-on to Twitter at 6:00pm CT / 7:00pm ET on November 17, 2010 and search for the hashtag #FSWine. You can also join a dedicated Tweetup at the nearest participating Four Seasons hotel or resort. Tweetups will be held at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta; Four Seasons Hotel Austin; Four Seasons Hotel Boston; Four Seasons Hotel Chicago; The Ritz-Carlton Chicago, A Four Seasons Hotel; Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas; Four Seasons Hotel Houston; Four Seasons Hotel Miami; Four Seasons Hotel New York; Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach; Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia; Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis and Four Seasons Hotel Toronto.
