On the second Saturday of each month, a group of bloggers who are passionate about the way good wine enhances a meal come together to blog about a wine pairing they have done. Each month has a different Wine Pairing Weekend theme to focus the pairings. There is a live Twitter Chat at 11 a.m. each of those 2nd Saturdays, using the hashtag #winePW. Anyone interested in wine pairing is welcome to join the chat.
I started this event in June of 2014, and every month since then we have had a great time! For more background, check out the original post announcing Wine Pairing Weekend.
New bloggers are welcome any time. Just let me know if you’re interested in participating!
The Wine Pairing Weekend Calendar below is a listing of the upcoming and past events. The past event listing directs you to the host’s blog post which will have a link to all the other blogs from that month. Check them out to fuel some good wine pairing ideas! I have also added a section for other wine pairing events coming up, including Italian Food, Wine & Travel and French Winophiles. Both were started by #winePW participants!
