Sniff, Swirl, Sip … Tweet tonight at the Four Seasons

November 17th 10:11am, 2010

080610_twittericonAh, the power of technology. Over the years, technology has enabled us to see and hear things we haven’t been able to experience firsthand. But so far, we can’t exactly taste things removed from our purview.

Tonight, we’ll come a touch closer to having a virtual culinary experience. Wine lovers will experience a brave new world of vicarious swirling and swishing when the Four Seasons St. Louis takes to Twitter to report the happenings of a live wine tasting as it occurs.

Sniff, Swirl, Sip … Tweet? starts tonight at 6 p.m., at Cielo at the Four Seasons hotel – and simultaneously in the “Twittersphere.” Of course, the tastiest way to enjoy this event is to drop by Cielo and enjoy the Loosen Bros. Dr. L Riesling, Paraiso Syrah and Chappellet Mountain Cuvee the tasting will sample. But if you can’t make it downtown by 6, don’t sweat it: You can follow the tasting on Twitter as noted sommeliers from Four Seasons hotel restaurants in Beverly Hills and Dallas and Austin, Texas, live tweet from the event, filling you in on all the delicious details. Just follow the hashtag #FSWine and you can join in on the virtual vino fun.

If you are able to make it to Cielo tonight, $18 will buy you samples of these three wines – alongside three appetizers – that are recommended for holiday parties. In addition to flavor notes, the sommeliers will be sharing – both live and on Twitter – tips for integrating these wines into a Thanksgiving holiday menu. They will end the night with what is sure to be an interactive Q & A session.
