Ever wonder who loves Miner Family Tempranillo as much as you do? Looking for the latest and greatest Oregon Pinot? Check out Bottlenotes, an online wine community where novice to advanced wine enthusiasts can go to learn about, share, explore and buy boutique and estate wines from around the world, hand-picked by Bottlenotes wine experts and tailored to individuals’ personal tastes.

Last night we attended (with about 500 other winos) Bottlenote's Around the World in 80 Sips event at Crushpad. It featured regions and grape varieties from Lebanon to Spain to South Africa. Culinary partners at the event included Artisanal, Just Desserts, Fatted Calf and more. You really can't go wrong with cheese, chocolate, charcuterie and wine. I just wish there was more of it. By 7 pm this place was packed which made it difficult to get a taste, spark a conversation with the winery rep or grab a small bite. But the event was a great success and the crowd was young. Yes, young!

Check out Bottlenotes for yourself or follow them on Twitter.
