Starting a virtual wine club - anyone interested

Posted by LouA1338, Aug 15, 2011.

Anyone interested in selecting a wine a week and everyone buying a bottle and capturing tasting notes?  Not sure of best way for this to work and open to suggestions but the idea would be to share thoughts and rate each wine.  Would need to set a price limit for wines, share any discounts and plan about a month in advance.

Let me know.

That's a great idea, and our Global Tasting Initiative, focusing on a specific grape each month, is trying to do just that in the broadest sense. We've had a pair of virtual tastings when a group of us got together and tasted the wines together live in a skype chat.

I'm on board to help if I can!

Great idea. Google+ has their new hangouts feature which sounds like it would be a good match for this if you want to taste live.

Yeah, this sounds great!  I would definitely get involved!

This would be a lot of fun and quite educational.  I would love to be a part of something like that.

Well August is halfway done and usually very busy for folks near the end of the month so how about starting to plan for September? We're focusing on Cabernet so maybe we can taste a different wine each week, California, Bordeaux, Australia and Chile?

We can try and establish a set time, maybe we can video as well as Google circle it so that folks who miss it can catch up?

This sounds interesting.  Personally, I am more comfortable with "batch mode" rather than "real time" events.  But let's see what emerges.  The idea of expanding the GTI concept sounds good.

I'm so terrible at technology, though still interested.  How would one log on to such an event?  And if we do a video mode, let's make it after my kids' bedtime ;)

Count me in , I'll bookmark here and check back to see if we get anything going. What price range are we looking at, I specialize in wines under $20 and my wallet can't handle much more than that anyway :)
