Top 10 drinks tweets of the week

This week’s roundup features the fashion-conscious Will Lyons, TV fan Tim Atkin MW, and even an appearance from us at db.

twitter-bird-white-on-blueWine and Twitter — what a glorious (and often hilarious) combination.

With another top-notch collection lined up, our drinks industry insiders are clearly continuing on fine form.

Marvel at their twitpics, hold their hashtags in high regard, and be astounded at their character-saving abbreviations, as they tweet on all manner of things vaguely related to wine.

Dive in and take a look at our top 10 drinks industry tweets of the week…

Madeline Puckette

Wine Folly’s Madeline Puckette hits out at the research suggesting that women are less interested in quality wine, reported by us at the drinks business.

If anyone is an exception to that research, it’s Madeline!

Jamie Goode

Nothing says ‘England’ like a rugby pitch and the backside of a dog.

Will Lyons

Mr Lyons – now a firm favourite in our weekly roundup – has come up with a brilliant little caveat to any cravat-led discussion; a conversation we can imagine him having on a regular basis.

Tim Atkin

Wine man Tim Atkin has inadvertently revealed a two-day TV binge with this series of tweets.

Note the dates between watching his first episode of the hit show and his complimentary sum-up having finished the eight, hour-long episodes.

We hope you’ve managed to come back to reality, Tim.

Drink Alsace

The Alsatian wine group gives a pretty cutting response to Jancis Robinson’s efforts to explain terroir.

Eric Asimov

Wine journalist Eric Asimov is stumped by Ice Challenge etiquette.

Sadly, at the time of writing, he still hasn’t gone through with either nomination.

Oh, how we wanted to see that!

Wine Sisterhood

But… how did all of those things fit in that tiny suitcase?!

Jon Thorsen

Jon Thorsen, aka the Reverse Wine Snob, gives a helpful guide to appropriate vessels for beverages.

Ken Waggoner

And Ken Waggoner, the collector of all things meme in the world of wine, gives us this cartoon with a deadly warning to those storing wine.

Gavin Quinney (with the drinks business)

And finally, a bit of a syntactic cock-up on our part didn’t get past the keen eye of Gavin Quinney.

Luckily, the vines didn’t sue us for defamation…
