Tasting Twits

Marlborough vineyard Brancott Estate is offering the winner of a Twitter contest two free airline tickets to New Zealand, inviting Tweeps to provide ‘tasting notes’ on one of their wines in condensed, 14-character tweets. The winery is looking for “creativity” and “judicious care” when it comes to articulating his or her take on any of Brancott’s sauvignon blancs, pinot noirs, or pinot grigios. The contest closes June 13. Users are allowed one submission per day. Use the hashtag #Whatif or visit their Facebook page for more information.
