Gira Mondo Wine Adventures Sip & Twit event tonight

GiraMondo Wine Adventures, a premier wine event company in the national capital area teams up with WineTwits, an online community of 40,000 strong wine enthusiasts who tweet, to bring the first ever online fully interactive wine tasting in the DC area.

Sip & Twit will be the first event of its kind in our area blending together the traditional world of wine tastings with new media and technology. The room will be set up like a traditional tasting, with stations featuring wines from around the globe, with an emphasis on Argentina and Chile. Representatives from major wine labels and GiraMondo Wine Ambassadors will be on hand to educate and inform.

Whereas a typical tasting involves attendees busily scribbling in notebooks, Sip & Twit participants will be able to ‘tweet’ their tasting notes and thoughts as they walk around the room. The tweet-feed will be simultaneously broadcasted locally to plasma screens around the room and globally to the online community utilizing the technology of our partner WineTwits.

The two participants who tweet the most that evening will take with them a magnum of fine Argentine Wine. Other prizes will be awarded as well including Crushpad’s Fusebox- blend your own wine, wines, accessories, and more!

Location: Whittemore House 1526 New Hampshire Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20036 – Metro: Dupont Circle (Red Line) Hours: 5:30pm-8pm
