#Chardonnay Day Recap
#ChardonnayDay is an international tasting shared on social networks by thousands of winelovers worldwide
The first #Chardonnay Day was a success: here you have some numbers.
We started ay 7.30 pm in a beautiful mild evening, with many old friends and some new ones, that I have been delighted to meet.
We tasted 9 wines from 4 different vintages, produced by 5 Sicilian wineries, opened a total of 29 bottles, and left about 2 am
Some of us twitted through the @cantinebarbera account, purposely created for the event, some others simply spent the night talking, tasting, listening to good music, discovering or re-discovering the pleasure of sharing a good glass with friends.
I had 1.353 contacts on Cantine Barbera's Facebook page, and my rating on Klout jumped from 41 to 45 in just one day. One of my “virtual” friends twitted a fantastic review for Piana del Pozzo 2009, which you can now read here.
This has been my little contribution to a global international event, which enjoyed a huge success: more than 4 million people reached by the tag #Chardonnay, with almost 30 million impressions on social media. And this almost doubles the readership of the most popular (and traditional) wine magazines.
IMHO, there are signs of a new born democracy in the wine’s world.
