From TwiTip, a suggested list of a top dozen wine Twitterers:
The 12th nomination is the creator of this list himself —Darren Rowse.
- @garyvee - Gary Vaynerchuk is the undisputed heavyweight champion of wine and new media. It’s Gary’s wine world - we’re just living in it.
- @billdaley - Bill Daley writes about food and wine for the Chicago Tribune. He’s one of the few old media types who seems to get new media.
- @binendswine - Craig Drollett created Twitter Taste Live, an online Twitter platform uniting wine drinkers around the world for virtual tastings.
- @winecast - Tim Elliott and crew create a consistently entertaining and enlightening wine audio podcast. The choicest tidbits end up on Twitter.
- @pmabray - Paul Mabray and his company VinTank unleashed a wine social media white paper. Hopefully they’ll focus on wine bloggers next.
- @ryanopaz and @gabriellaopaz - A twofer: Ryan and Gabriella Opaz are American expatriots living in Spain. Together they are a wonderful pair of international wine ambassadors.
- @1winedude - Joe Roberts is smart, often clever, funny, unusually insightful, and always interesting to read.
- @eljefetwisted - Jeff Stai is the owner and wine maker at Twisted Oak Winery in California. What’s not to like about his weird rubber chicken fetish?
- @lenndevours - Forget California, Oregon, and Washington State wines. Lenn Thompson is on a mission to showcase the wines of New York State.
- @kevinzraly - Kevin Zraly wrote the “Windows On The World Complete Wine Course,” considered by many to be THE wine book.
- @sonadora - Megan Kenney is a government minion by day, wine blogger by night, and a great read all day long.
Twitter has opened up amazing opportunity in my life - it helps grow my personal brand, drives traffic to my online businesses and on a daily basis opens up new relationships and networks that I could never have dreamed of having access to.
