On Thursday September 1, 2011 wine lovers around the world will celebrate the 2nd annual International #CabernetDay, and San Jose’s A Perfect Finish wine bar is THE place in Silicon Valley HQ to gather and celebrate!
Cabernet day is the brainchild of Certified Sommelier Rick Bakas, who has run several such virtual tastings over the last two years. The idea is for people around the world to open some of their favorite Cabernets and share tasting notes with their friends wherever they are through live-chats, Twitter, Facebook and live streaming tasting sessions using the tag #CabernetDay to alert people they are participating in the event.
A powerful use of social media, wines from wineries large and small can all participate by sharing their wines with tasters who then spread the word on multiple networks. The recent #ChardonnayDay event reached over 4 million people through their social networks in one day. That’s almost twice than the circulation of the largest wine industry publication.
In San Jose we’ll be tasting Cabernets from around the world as well as award winning local Santa Clara Valley Cabernets from Creekview Vineyards and Fortino Winery. The team at A Perfect Finish will offer appetizers and even a little dessert to finish off your evening.
One of the coolest parts about Cabernet Day is comparing tasting notes with other tasters around the world and the San Jose event will be live-streaming a broadcast of special Cabernet focused seminars as well as showing the live #CabernetDay twitter stream on a screen at A Perfect Finish.
Note: Space is limited to 100 for this event, Event begins at 6 PM and ends at 8 PM. Tickets are available through Eventbrite for $15 or $20 at the door.
Event sponsored by Bakas Media, Thirsty Girl, and A Perfect Finish.
