Virtual Tasting with two Hands Michael Twelftree 1/19/10

Posted by Gregory Dal Piaz, Jan 12, 2010.

We'll be tasting wines with Michael Twelftree and participating in an online virtual tasting.!

If you want to join us in our NYC conference room, please let me know as we'd love to have you.

If you just want to join online stay tuned for all the details to be released by Monday the 18th.

If you have any questions you want us to ask Michael feel free to send them along if you think you may not be able to join us online.

One of my favorite producers! Wish I could be there in person. For anyone who misses the online, is it recorded and archived anywhere to be watched later?

Hey Chad,

Yes, if you miss the live broadcast, you will be able to view this on the site afterward.

Hope you can join us though. And tell your friends!

I'm sure some form of this question is already on the slate. But now that Two Hands is 3+ vintages into their US/Napa venture, would love to hear his thoughts on the differences between US and Australia. Viniculture and viticulture, but more importantly the business aspects of the wine trade. What surprised him, both positively and negatively. Thanks!

Will do!

Ohh yess! I am in ( on the virtual that is). Can you pre-list what is being tasted so that we might procure it ahead of time?

Lily’s Garden 2007 - Garden Series
Gnarly Dudes 2007 - Picture Series
Angel’s Share 2008 - Picture Series

That's the line-up but if you can only find other vintages, or even entirely different wines I think it would be fine.

The more wines we're all tasting the more info we can get out of Michael!

Hi Greg,
Andrea and I would love to join you. Turns out, it is also her birthday so this would be a fun way to start the celebration.

Would love for you all to join but I forgot to post the time. 9pm Eastern time, so that our west coast friends can get a chance to get home and join us.

In any event I'll be in the Snooth offices ready to welcome all, or almost all it's not that big an office, comers!

I'll certainly try and watch the broadcast, but won't be able to try any of the wines as I don't really have any of their wines to hand. (Uh, I only just noticed the pun there. Apologies for that). Should be interesting though.

One of the Two Hands winemakers visited one of my local wine stores once, so I've already had a chance to taste some of their wines. I remember particularly liking the Brave Faces Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro. There are a number of others they make I'd be keen to try too, such as the Gnarly Dudes Shiraz.

Hello Gregory, Like everyone who tunned in, I enjoyed last nights discussion. That was the second time I have been part of a live forum. The first time was last year when Snooth hosted "open that bottle night" The wine group I am now part of has a big party planned for this year's "open that bottle night". Will Snooth be doing the same thing this year as well? Thanks Greg...Green Pea

Was the virtual tasting recorded? I would be interested in watching it but missed the live event. Also I was expecting to see many new reviews for the wines tasted (looked at the two hands angel's share 2008) but didn't see any new reviews. Did people just watch and not drink?

It was a lot of fun. I think there were a lot of people drinking, I know I was. It tried to get a bottle that you guys were tasting but ended up with the 2007 Bella's Garden, but I sure am glad that I did because it was a great bottle of wine. The best part was being able to communicate through the chat function.

We had a great time too! Thanks to everyone for joining us. Keep tuned for our next guest...
