Tweet-up at Travel Lane County

Social media and wine enthusiasts are invited to take part in a special Tuesday Tasting event designed to generate excitement about the region's wine industry and upcoming Memorial Day winery events.

Travel Lane County will host a Tuesday Tasting Tweetup on Tuesday, May 14, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., at the Eugene, Cascades & Coast Adventure Center located at 3312 Gateway St., in Springfield.

Representatives from Sweet Cheeks, J. Scott Cellars and Territorial Vineyards will be pouring tastings of a variety of their locally-produced wines.

Social media experts and bloggers, who specialized in the wine industry, have been invited to participate. Anyone, however, with an interest in wine tasting and social media are encouraged to take part and join in the conversation about the wines of the South Willamette Valley.

A special Twitter hashtag, #Wine30, will be used during the evening. Tastings are free.

Travel Lane County is a private, nonprofit association dedicated to economic development through visitor spending. In 2011, visitor spending pumped $548 million into Lane County’s economy supporting a variety of local businesses and jobs. Travel Lane County is funded by room tax paid by visitors using area lodging facilities and campgrounds.
