Wow. This past Saturday was the first-ever “Open That Bottle of Local Wine Night” and I think I can speak for my Cork Report colleague Gina Shay when I say that it exceeded every expectation.
Just on Instagram, there were more than 2,100 posts over the course of 24 hours or so (with even more on Facebook and Twitter).
I just want to thank each and every one of you who took part. It was so much fun to scroll through my various social channels Saturday night, seeing what everyone was drinking. I tried to comment on, like and share as many posts as I could.
The local wine community isn’t about just New York or Virginia or Michigan. It’s all of us. Together. Saturday night proved that.
If you’re interested in seeing some of the posts you can see them here:
Thank you again – and I think we’re going to make this an annual event. Maybe two times a year. Stay tuned for more.
