Can you really go around the world in only 80 sips of wine?  My friends at Bottlenotes think so and I’m going to try to find out!bottlenotes

Around the World in 80 Sips is inspired by Bottlenotes’ mastermind Alyssa Rapp’s tasting guide of the same name.

On Thursday, February 19, the first companion tasting event will be held here in San Francisco at Crushpad.  You know, Crushpad.  The place where I am making my own wine, the place where all the cool events happen, the custom crush facility in Dogpatch?  Yeah!  Crushpad!

This pour a thon will feature Bottlenotes wines, who will be pouring their wares, from all around the globe.  With wine being more popular than ever, and a global enterprise, Alyssa embarked on a guide that will provide us with sensible, and sophisticated advice from educated consumers.  The book was born out of popular tasting events by Bottlenotes, and this event was born out of the book!

This event is the first of it’s kind so be sure to get there early!  There is a VIP portion set aside for Media, Bloggers and special folk at 5pm, while the regular Joe’s can enter at 6.

Remember to bring your media enabled devices!  The Twitterati will be out in force, and we will be tweeting along with the sips.   Our hashtag for this event is #80sips, and you can follow all the fun by going to and entering this code!

Tickets are $40 for the public, but if you are a blogger, please contact for special dispensation to the VIP tasting event.  If you are a friend of Twisted Oak, ask Jefe how you can save $10 on tickets!
