April 18th, 12 Pacific Time, Iron Horse Winery will be tweeting globally about their wines ‘From Sonoma to New Jersey’ via WineTwits’ Sip and Twit’, and about the Pinot Noir Estate Napa Valley (Green Valley) we most recently paired with food, which by the way is an excellent wine!

Adrienne and I will be posting a video this next week of some Tweets gathering together to taste the wine and discuss its wonderful notes and accolades…

Join Us!

4PM Eastern- Partners In Wine Club will be attending the Iron Horse Tasting at:

The Wine Loft
32 Laird Street
Long Branch, NJ 07740-8100
(732) 222-7770

Hashtag #GreenValley- See you on Twitter

We have paired the Iron Horse Pinot Noir, 07 with a lightly dressed EVO Feta Cheese, olives, and Dolmas, along with an earthy black bean, mixed cheddar, crispy tortillas, and mixed green salads. The bottle of Pinot we opened was a perfect match! So we look forward to tasting more on Sunday!

Cheers and Tweets!

Today is National Wine Day

In perusing  Twitter for the last couple of hours, low and behold I just found out it’s National Wine Day. What better day than today to drink some of your favorite wine. Let’s give thanks to those folks in the industry that provide us with so much guilty pleasure. Face it, wine has been around for eons, and has made many an un-pleasant person into a kind mannered soul, thanks to the wonders of this miracle discovery.

For those of you who do not know, wine has many virtues:

  • It helps with your mood
  • It helps put you into “The Mood”
  • Red wine has been documented to increase a woman’s sex drive ( I have documentation on that!)
  • It has health benefits e.g. Resveratrol- with antioxidants and immune benefits ( I have documentation on that as well)
  • It helps the economy
  • Wine goes well with food
  • The bottle doesn’t talk back to you!

And the list goes on and on.

Wine, with all it’s virtues should be The National Drink. Heck, instead of National Wine Day, let’s proclaim National Wine Month and spur on this economy. You’ve heard of “Palette Fatigue, I say forget the recession and forgo “Recession Fatigue” .

Drink wine and make new friends.

Cheers! From the Partners In Wine Club!
