Interesting side-story on the much-tweeted SITT tasting today. The wine social media community – me included – used the #SITT twitter hash tag without testing it first.

Thus if you head to Science in The Triangle’s website you’ll see all our tasting notes and comments appearing: scienceinthetriangle.org
