Twitter handles: Wine industry

6 July 2009

I’ve been focusing on the wine industry this week as a possible sector to write about for the book. So far I’ve found a young-to-Twitter but robust community of wineries, wine organizations and wine enthusiasts on Twitter. Here are some notable handles that I’ve found so far:

@tastewashington
Taste Washington is the wine-tasting arm of the Washington Wine Commission. Recently, Taste Washington used Twitter to promote and document the “Taste Washington Spokane” event.

@projectvino
Project Vino is an Australian wine site focused on community recommendations. TechCrunch reported on the group hosting a Twitter wine tasting back in April 2008. More at http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/04/30/project-vino-twitter-wine-tasting/

@winetwits
Huge (34,222 following, 35,424 followers) congregation of winos on Twitter.

@winescribbler
Andrew Barrow is a wine blogger out of Wallingford, UK, who has hosted wine-tasting events on Twitter.

@writeforwine
Coworker, Canadian and former journalist based in the Northwest who is also wine blogger.

@woodwardcanyon
A little-known Washington winery that just began using Twitter. May provide an interesting perspective of an independent winery trying to use Twitter.

@columbiawinery
Large Washington winery that just began using Twitter. Another new-adopter perspective but from the POV of a larger winery.

@prosserwinectry
This handle is actually the City of Prosser, Washington’s Chamber of Commerce, which promotes its wine economy.

@cornerstonenapa
An independent Napa winery that uses Twitter and has a good audience (2,001 following, 1,622 followers).

@guyjacques
Co-Founder of the Wine social network website vinivino.com and based out of Montreal, Canada.

@fiascowines
A family out of New Zealand trying to launch a wine label. Frequent Twitter users (4k+ Tweets).
