Survey says..... Here are the results from the TM Wine Tasting Twitter Party Survey:

Thank you so much to all you fabulous moms who responded to our survey about what kinds of wine you'd like to taste at our monthly Wine Tasting Twitter Party. Without further ado here's what you said:



Almost 60 percent of you want us to break it up about 50/50 between red and white wines.



Half of you are interested in trying a global selection of wines with another 30 percent indifferent as to the wine's origin. So we'll definitely extend our international reach over the… Continue

Drink Pink and Chill Out on Friday #tmwc

I love the bottle for this month's #tmwc wine tasting – the Leverano Rosato is one of my summer favorites. It's glorious hue may remind you of white zin, but don't even think about them in the same sentence. This dry rose (rhymes with chardonnay but I can't find that accent mark on the keyboard) is crisp, a little acidic and absolutely refreshing. Drink it chilled like you would a white wine.



The wine gets it's color from red-skinned grapes. When the grapes are crushed the skins stay… Continue

#TMWC - Get Ready for Friday with Food Pairings for Gruner Veltliner

Hope you're all looking forward to this month's wine tasting as much as I am. If you haven't joined us for one yet, you should really check it out. It always puts me in a good mood and gets me laughing. This month's wine is a Gruner Veltliner (GV), a grape varietal that is mostly grown in Austria. Dry, crisp and minerally, this wine is great for summer sipping – and usually fairly inexpensive. (By the way - the Gruner should have those dots over the "u" but I can't figure out how to do that on… Continue

What to Eat While You Tweet? Merlot Edition

As we're celebrating with Merlot this Friday with the #tmwc, I thought I'd offer some ideas of what you might want to eat while you tweet? As always, I'll walk us through the time zones so everyone can get in on the action.



For those west coasters who will be enjoying a starter -- I'm going to suggest cheese again. You just can't go wrong with the classics. Since merlot is a medium bodied wine but low in tannins, you can pair it with popular cheeses like parmesan, gouda, cheddar,… Continue

What to Eat While You Tweet: Food ideas for tonight's TwitterMoms Wine Tasting

Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been looking forward to tonight's TwitterMoms Wine Tasting Tweet Up (#tmwc) all week.



So let’s talk about what we’ll be sipping. The selected bottle is the Panarroz Red ’06 out of Spain. How you taste this wine will depend on your individual likes and dislikes, however, the Panarroz is generally described as full of berries, a little peppery, smokey, and with a smooth mouth-feel.



The wine is actually… Continue
