Famille Perrin Chateauneuf du Pape 2009
As of late I have found myself posting photographs of wines I have enjoyed via social media. This has allowed me to share with others the wines I am discovering when time is not available for an extensive Whine and Cheers post. Many of these wines I hope to write about some day but that day has not yet come.
Chateau Vignot Saint Emilion 2007
Twitter, Facebook or Instagram are great ways for me to also keep a visual public record of my imbibing. In fact this site was partly started because of a year-long wine diary my better half and I began about four years ago. Social media is my new wine diary. Yes it can be a crutch [not writing] but it is also a wonderful way to share information and start conversations. So with this said, I present my photo journey of wines enjoyed but not written about [yet!] over the last couple of months. Wines that made me all atwitter. So much so that they were recorded for posterity. ¡SALUD!

Cabernet Day August 30th 2012 – Celebrating everything Cabernet….
In preparation for the 3rd Annual Cabernet Day I decided to review all my earlier Whine and Cheers For Wine posts. Surprisingly many included Cabernet as a topic; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Blends etc. and include wines from California, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, Australia France and more.
In commemoration and celebration of this special day I have decided to repost my reviews via Twitter throughout the day of August 30th referencing #CabernetDay. Please join me in revisiting these posts and by sharing your own. I too will be checking posts on Twitter by searching #CabernetDay throughout the day. I am looking forward to learning more about the varietal and even more so seeing what everyone will be drinking in celebration.
To join the crowds and or register to follow #CabernetDay events; check out; http://cabernet.eventbrite.com/
For those of you not on Twitter or for those of you just looking for some Cabernet information; I have listed below all the references available on Whine and Cheers for Wine. If you prefer to do the search yourself just type in Cabernet Day in the Search portion of our site. Please visit, share your thoughts and see what other posts get your attention. ¡SALUD!
