If you tuned in live to the TTL 05 event, you know that after the Hahn Estates wine tasting, I went on to my own Grocery Store Zinfandel tasting. My idea was to find 4 zinfandels in the grocery store, all under $20, and taste them live with you.

The next twittertastelive.com event is Saturday November 15th at 6pm est.

I’ve been babbling about this Twitter Taste Live stuff all week, if not two. I want to explain why I’ve been talking about it, plus hopefully get your help so I can win some wine!

I try to offer something for everyone. I’m the Baskin-Robbins of blogging, 31 flavors to satisfy everyone.
Tonight, we went to Italy for dinner. While we didn’t actually FLY there, we did have a fantastic lazagne,some garlic bread, and of course, a nice Italian wine to compliment the meal. I did not take a lot of time picking tonight’s wine out, and went with something that was inexpensive ($10) and being demoed in the store.
