Four Seasons Hosts New Kind of Wine Tasting on November 17. Twitter-based wine event provides access to three of the brand’s top sommeliers, sharing perfect pairings for the upcoming holidays.
WHAT: An intermingling of technology and oenophilia that provides unprecedented access to three of Four Seasons’ top sommeliers in the United States. On #WineWednesday, November 17, 2010,
WHY: To tap into a wealth of wine knowledge from three sommeliers with more than 25 years of combined experience.
Using the Twitter social media platform, James Tidwell, Master Sommelier and 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, recognised as “one of the best around” by Bon Appétit magazine, will lead participants in a virtual guided tasting of three distinct wines. Discussion will address the unique flavour profiles of each and how to pair them with seasonal dishes. Tips for weaving the wines into a Thanksgiving holiday menu will also be shared, and the event will end with a Q & A session.
