#BCWineChat, why you should follow it

Have you ever really wanted to know what goes on in the BC wine industry? Do you want the opportunity to engage with fellow wine lovers and possibly even have the chance to talk to a winemaker, an owner, or various winery team members?

Then you should log on to @twitter every Wednesday at 8pm PST/11pm EST and look for the hashtag #BCWineChat which was created by Sandra Oldfield, CEO of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards located in Oliver, BC back in December 2011.

What an amazing way to keep in touch with the industry, to talk with your peers and share ideas. It is a great way to engage with fellow colleagues and other wineries, there is no travel time on twitter, just saying. Plus, you don’t even need to wear pants, there is no dress code! 😉

All of the chat discussions are archived at bcwinechat.com and you will noticed that there is even a schedule and a place where you can also suggest a topic. If you are afraid to tweet and jump in, you can always read and watch, but we all would love to hear from you, many perspectives is always key.

I have met many amazing people in the wine industry via twitter that I am happy to call my friends. We are all working towards the same goal and that is of course the success of our industry.

In vino veritas
