Wine for Summer's Bounty: Preview for #winePW 3

The corn is high, those wonderful August tomatoes are here, and plenty of great produce abounds at local farms. What wine pairings can help us enjoy summer's bounty? Join us for Wine Pairing Weekend on August 9th to explore this tasty question!

"Wine for Summer's Bounty" is the theme of the Aug. 9 #winePW event.

As I explained in my post introducing Wine Pairing Weekend, I find plenty of online events focusing on food and wine separately, but not too much looking at the interplay of food and wine. Wine Pairing Weekend (#winePW for short and on Twitter) is a monthly event featuring bloggers posting about a pairing in response to a particular theme, along with discussion on social media about the topic. This will include a live #winePW Twitter chat at 11 a.m. Eastern time on Saturday August 9. Anyone interested in the subject can jump into the conversation on Twitter at that time, which can also be accessed on our Twubs page for easy viewing and tweeting. The questions for the chat are posted over on the Wine Pairing Weekend site.

Below I'm linking to the bloggers that have let me know they plan to participate. Thanks to the early responders to this third #winePW! If you're reading this before August 9, you can still jump in with a blog post of your own. Just check out the August intro post for more of the blogger details and email me at winepairingweekend AT If you've come to us after August 9, consider joining us for #winePW 4 on Saturday, September 13.
