From April 24th to April 26th, Lansdowne Resort, the beautiful retreat in Leesburg, Virginia, will play host to the 2nd annual DrinkLocalWine.com conference. This year’s focus is the Virginia wine industry - including, but not limited to, its winegrowers, unique terroir, farming practices, and the award-winning limited production wines produced. Virginia wine lovers, bloggers, writers, industry professionals, and supporters of DrinkLocalWine are embarking upon DC’s Wine Country to mingle, learn, enjoy, explore, and swirl, sniff, and sip regional wines. There will be seminars, panel discussions, a Twitter Taste-off, winemaker dinners – too much to list. What’s really awesome is this is taking place right in our backyard and an up-and-coming wine producing region like Virginia is getting a much deserved spotlight shined its way!
Make Mine Virignia Wine!
For the next three days, starting tomorrow, I will be joining wine friends, bloggers, tweeps, etc. to celebrate and support the DrinkLocalWine cause. The focal point of the conference, led by the Washington’s Post Dave McIntyre and wine blogger Jeff Siegel of the Wine Curmudgeon, is to put a bright spotlight on wines made in the other 47 states (sans CA, OR, and WA) and Canada. This is not because they have something against the wines produced in the other three sates, it’s because the other 47 states do not get the exposure or media coverage that they deserve. I’m excited about the conference and even have several wine friends who are bringing selections from Colorado, North Carolina, New York, Texas, Maryland, Florida, and Utah. Is that cool or what? If you have not signed up for the conference yet, visit the DrinkLocalWine.com website and come out and support the cause. It’s going to be a really good time and I look forward to seeing you and sharing a swirl, sniff, and sip! Feel free to hit me up on Twitter, FB, or text me if you are in the area. Have a question about this post, friends? Feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and as always, Happy Sipping!
