There is so much more to PORTUGAL than PORT Wine!

Food and travel are always a part of the chat, so join us for all the doors that Portuguese  wine can open. And we’d love to have participation from people who live in Portugal too!

Next month, we at #WinePW say #MerlotMe! On the second Saturday of each month, a group of bloggers who are passionate about the way good wine enhances a meal come together to blog about a wine pairing they have done. Each month has a different Wine Pairing Weekend theme to focus the pairings. There is a live Twitter Chat at 8 a.m. PST using the hashtag #winePW.

Anyone interested in wine pairing is welcome to join the chat!

David Crowley of Cooking Chat started this event in June of 2014, and every month since then we have had a great time! For more background, check out the original post announcing Wine Pairing Weekend.

New bloggers are welcome any time. Just let me know if you’re interested in participating!

Check out the Wine Pairing Weekend Calendar for a list of the upcoming and past events. The past event listing directs you to the host’s blog post which will have a link to all the other blogs from that month. Check them out to fuel some good wine pairing ideas!
