Cream Wine Company, starting June 17th, will host monthly wine tastings online using the social media outlets Twitter and Facebook. Creating a virtual wine tasting community is interactive and has many advantages for the consumer and the wine industry: it brings wine novices and participants together with experts in the wine industry, allows winemakers to respond directly to consumers real time, promotes local retail businesses and restaurants, creates an opportunity to engage with people from all over the U.S. and the world, and just makes tasting wine a little bit more fun.

“It’s the perfect way to bridge the gap between the vineyard, marketing and consumer without having to host a party for a million people in your own home,” says Andy Pates, proprietor of Cream Wine Company.

June 17, 2010, from 5-8 PM Central Time, Cream Wine Company will host their first online tasting featuring 2008 Murphy’s Law Red from Washington. Special guest Christophe Bakunas, owner of Local Wine Company, the national representative for Murphy’s Law and other wines from the West Coast, will be attending the first tasting as well as sommeliers, bloggers and other wine industry professionals using their personal Twitter accounts and the hashtag #tastecream. Convinced of the success of virtual wine tastings, Christophe Bakunas adds, “It’s an opportunity to discuss the same wines with friends colleagues and people from all over the world.”
