Wine Bloggers Conferences

\"At Paul Masson Vineyards luncheon, strolling troubadors perform the traditional affinity of troubadors with wine.\"

The beauty of blogging is that it can create virtual communities that span the globe, connecting people who have perhaps never met, but share a common interest. But sometimes it’s great to meet face to face, and do that old-fashioned thing: Talk. Drink wine. Spray milk out your nose when someone says something really funny. If you’ve got a wine blog, and want to meet with other wine bloggers, this year provides not one, but two great opportunities for doing so:

  • The European Wine Bloggers Conference, 29-31 August in Rioja, kindly organized by Ryan and Gabriella Opaz of Catavino and Robert McIntosh of The Wine Conversation. I am excited to say I’ll be there, and am very much looking forward to seeing friends, meeting new people (some of whom have already “virtually” become friends), and learning more about the European blogging community. If you can, please join us!
  • The American Wine Bloggers Conference, 24-26 October in Sonoma. Not to be outdone, the folks behind the Open Wine Consortium are organizing what looks to be a great event in the US. I’m hoping to make this one as well, if I’ve recovered from my Big Birthday a week prior!

…and there you have it. See, I can write brief posts. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    Let’s see if I can make it… Spain is always Spain, and the idea of meeting wine bloggers from all over the world is soooo inviting!!

    Damn, I’m envious.
    Been having a hard time finding my way back across the waters since spending most of ’03 in Barcelona.
    Luvly project here, BTW. See you in Santa Rosa. (Or should I write-say ‘@theFlamingo’?)
