#Winechat is a chat on Twitter that occurs every Wednesday night from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. EST (6-7PST). Each week there is different topic or guest Tweeter. On August 8, 2012 at 6:00 p.m., Charlotte will chat about wines from Castilla – La Mancha, a region located in the center of Spain with over 1,240,000 acres under vine and is home to 46 different grape varieties. Check out more info on this region here. You don’t have to be a total wine geek to join however, you must have a thirst to learn and chat about wine! Check out some fun #winechat numbers here.
How do you join #winechat? Using a tool such as Tweetdeck or Hootsuite, log into your twitter account and follow the #winechat stream. Be sure to include #winechat at the end of each tweet so everyone in the stream can see you!
Charlotte’s Pop-Up Wine Schools gives her a chance to teach in-person where wine lovers can find her “popping-up” in her favorite wine bar or restaurant around the United States to teach classes or consult. Couples can attend these classes as a fun outing while building their wine knowledge, including likes and dislikes. For those couples that would rather enjoy a more private setting, the Boozy Academy also offers e-courses which can be taken in the comfort of your own home.
The Wine Key creates a fun and informative environment that takes one back to the pure basics of wine. In the end, an overall wine experience post-course will give an enhanced trust in one’s palate in order to make the best wine decisions.
For someone looking to dive deeper in the wine barrel and receive one-on-one attention while truly reshaping their knowledge and wine lifestyle for 12 weeks, the choice e-course would be the Private 1-on-1.
- The Wine 101 Group e-course would be just 6 weeks long and can enjoy with friends the information about vineyards, their grapes, wine making/production, food and wine pairings, wines around the world, as much more.
- Harvest & Productions, this seasonal wine e-course is 6 weeks as well covers the major growing regions of the northern hemisphere during harvests, what makes a great vineyard, other major growing regions, updates from around the world, and much more.
Also known as “The Palate” due to her impeccable ability to describe wine in the most ridiculous yet often accurate manner. She is the Founder and Wine Educator of The Wine Key. Charlotte has over 10 years experience in the Wine Industry and Hospitality. She has worked as a Cellar Rat, (Yep! That’s a real job title), Tasting Room Manager, Sommelier and WineWriter. Through these experiences, Charlotte has seen a disconnect between wine knowledge and the enjoyment of wine. Her mission in the wine world is to bridge the gap.
