Virtual Wine Tasting: Barone Pinot Grigio


On Thursday I am participating in the #TasteChallenge virtual wine tasting event hosted by @WineTwits on Twitter. The event will be presented as an online broadcast from New York City. You can sign up and join me in this virtual wine tasting event.

Following are details on how to join and participate:

The Barone Fini wine brand is conducting a national Pinot Grigio Taste Challenge on Thursday, March 24th from 8-8:30PM EDT.

There will be a live event featuring the producer of Barone Fini, Count Giovanni Bonmartini-Fini.  The Fini family has been producing wine for over 500 years dating back to the time when their family made wine for the Medici’s when they ruled Venice.

Two premium Pinot Grigio wines are part of the “blind” taste challenge. Giovanni will be guiding both in person and online guests through each wine.

Anyone can participate by registering at By registering you are automatically entered into a sweepstakes trip for 2 to Venice, Italy.

Register for the virtual tasting and log-in Thursday 3/24 at 8PM EDT and watch for a live streaming video of Giovanni as he lead the blind taste challenge. I will be participating with a small group of friends and will be tweeting questions and comments. If you are on Twitter, follow #tastechallenge to learn more about these wines.

As someone who wants to get the best value for her dollar, I’ll be paying close attention. I’m not a wine connoisseur, but I know that a great wine doesn’t have to break the budget.

Disclosure: I will be provided with wine for the tasting. I am over 21, as will all guests participating. All opinions about the wine will be mine or that of my guests.
