Whole Foods Market is celebrating wines from New Zealand this fall, and they are taking to social media to alert the wine-loving public. There are two virtual tasting events set - one on Thursday September 18 and the other on Thursday October 9, 2014. Both tasting events are scheduled to run from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. CT.
To participate in a virtual tasting event, get the wines at a Whole Foods Market near you, take them home, log onto Twitter and stay ready with the hashtag: #WFMwine. Using the hashtag in your tweets will channel your comments into the stream with everyone else's. We always have so much fun that way! To follow along, set up a search for #WFMwine and save it. It's very easy to keep in the flow that way.
You can also win a trip to New Zealand in the Whole Foods wine department. Look here for details on the contest. You have until the end of September to enter for that prize.
