twitter-bird-white-on-blueIt’s been another good week for the more web-savvy wine-folk out there in the land of hashtags and retweeting etiquette.

From embarrassing snaps to snappy remarks, nothing gets past us here at the drinks business. 

Take a look at what wine figures have made this weeks Top 10.



Randall Graham

Winemaker and wordsmith Randall Graham has been stomping around his Californian patch this week — ‘schlepping’ all over the place.

Got to love that word!

Robert McIntosh

ThirstforWine writer Robert McIntosh felt it useful to help his followers pace out their daily helping of weirdness by posting this quirky new song by musical satirist Weird Al. Cheers, Robert — a service to us all!

Will Lyons

In what seems to be becoming a regular feature for Wall Street Journal drinks writer, Will Lyons is once again snapped in a candid (and obviously unstaged) behind-the-scenes photo wearing the most fashionable threads.

He shows a serious commitment to style, does Mr Lyons, what with him surely being so frightfully warm under that jumper…

Alice Feiring

A point well-made by wine writer Alice Feiring. We would love to know the context for this! (We smell a scoop…)

Frankie Cook

Wine blogger Frankie Cook knows his stuff.

He has this week revealed what really goes on behind the winery doors…

Eric Asimov

New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov has been serving his civic duty this week, but he’s not really enjoying it. I wonder is his old pal in the dock? That would surely be breaking some sort of contempt law. Tisk tisk, Eric!

Russ Beebe

It’s hashtag-galore for wine writer Russ Beebe.

A #nice #comfy #knitted #scarf for #summer sounds #perfect!

Paul Mabray

Vintank’s Paul Mabray is amazed at his own success as he gets the jitters before a public talk on wine business. We’re sure you knocked it out of the park, Paul.

Ken Alawine Waggoner

Those label-lovers out there will fully appreciate this picture, posted by food and wine man Ken “Alawine” Waggoner.

It’s all about the graphic!

Gavin Quinney

Gavin Quinney had everyone on his French vineyard hard at work on Bastille Day this week, despite it being a national holiday. And who said the French were lazy?
