SITT twitterers

The SITT (specialist importers trade tasting) today at Vinopolis was excellent, if a little busy at times and slightly too warm. It was brilliantly organized, with a plentiful supply of great tasting glasses and far too many interesting, characterful wines to try in one session. If I find the time I'll post my top ten from the tasting here.

I bumped into a bunch of wine twitterers (see http://www.twitter.com/ if you are wondering what this is about - it's a form of micro-blogging that's all the rage at the moment) - and Andrew Chapman, an avid twitterer, took the picture above. From left to right, Brett Jones, Ryan Opaz, me, Robert Mackintosh and Gabriella Opaz. [For the original picture, go to: http://twitpic.com/1onra]

It was great to meet you as well Jamie! And hopefully, this will be the first of many more encounters in the near future.

Rob McIntosh was taken aback that I chose to leave Twitter. Trouble is, there are too many distractions in one life! Re. the heat in Vinopolis, when open plan, the structure was cooled in quite a sophisticated manner. Air was sucked from one end of the building all the way into what was Argentina and is now 'Brew Wharf'. The original vents are still in the latter. By paritioning it, the system's functionality is totally cancelled. I used to enjoy the SITT upstairs (much brighter) although its popularity must have sent it into the main halls.

Sorry I was only able to meet a few of the UK & Iberian (!) Wine Twitterverse yesterday. But it was nice to see those that I did.

Re: the heat of the halls - I agree with Douglas that the upstairs room was cooler and brighter, if quite crowded. Yesterday was crowded AND unbearably hot. There must be a better venue. But the glasses were nice and abundant.

A Twit Twoo...

Twittering about wine is something I WOULD like to read about. But how do you keep it down to 140 characters?
