Watch this spot for virtual wine tasting

We've got the database of winners from the California State Fair Wine Competition and ready to sample some of them. So why not make this a shared experience?

Here's the plan: I'm going to select three wines, which will be announced next Wednesday on this "Appetizers" blog, and we'll taste them virtually as a group at 6 p.m. on June 30. We'll have it set up so you can share your tasting notes and thoughts live via Twitter, Facebook or

I'll be picking wines that are both affordable, easy to find locally and also scored well at the State Fair. Also plan on some notable food and wine personalities to join this virtual tasting. More info. coming soon ... salud!
