@drvino (Dr Vino): .@whyknowinphilly Readership of http://DrVino.com has grown over the past three years. It’s a bull market for free content! #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@whyknowinphilly “blogging vs traditional media” is entirely valid any more. Some bloggers do journalism and journos blog! #SommChat

@hkremer (hkremer): @whyknowinphilly great question re future of wine blogging v. traditional media #SommChat @drvino

@hkremer (hkremer): @drvino “blogging v. trad. media” is or is *not* entirely valid anymore. tweet is somewhat unclear #SommChat @whyknowinphilly

@adriennebyard (Adrienne Byard): @drvino Orange wine. Fad, or here to stay? Do you enjoy them? @KeeperColl #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@adriennebyard Orange wine? Still popular. And important lessons that challenged certain assumptions about white wine … #SommChat

@PhillytoBoston (Tom G.): @drvino Where do you think the next “big” wine growing region is? Slovakia? Somewhere in the US (Virginia)? #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@PhillytoBoston Next big region? Gah, so many interesting places, some of them old, such as Santorini. #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@PhillytoBoston the most interesting thing might be new producers, such as Rhys, who are v meticulous. #SommChat

@snipit (Snip.it): @PhillytoBoston @drvino Moldova has a good amount of wine #SommChat

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): #SommChat RT @drvino @dailywinebuff Writing a short wine list -harder than long list, I’d imagine….it’s often that way with articles…

@vtwinemedia (Todd Trzaskos): #sommchat Q: @drvino do you see the new rise of wine & now cider as fad or historic rebound from 1933? #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@vtwinemedia cider is interesting. But I do wonder if people will pay wine prices for cider. Mostly, I’d take the grape juice. #SommChat

@AdamPlotkin (Adam Plotkin): @drvino Where did you attend med school? OK…sorry…couldn’t resist… #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@AdamPlotkin I got my Ph.D. from Northwestern (6-1 in football, btw–go Cats!) #SommChat

@adriennebyard (Adrienne Byard): @drvino You’re stuck on an elevator with Patrick Swayze’s ghost, Cabbot Clothbound, and a bottle. Which bottle is it? @KeeperColl #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@adriennebyard Txakoli? A good bourgogne blanc? Wait, that’s not funny. So add Whoopi Goldberg. #SommChat

@AdamPlotkin (Adam Plotkin): @i_on_food_drink @drvino It is a burgeoning field. As we’re physician assistant & nurse practitioner winos… #SommChat

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): RT @MSPWineGuy: @drvino Any trends in restaurant wine menus you like? Any you wish would just go away? #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@RobertALoblaw I’d say the key is finding a good shop near you. Establish a relationship. Describe what you want. And get feedback #SommChat

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): Q. @DrVino You have taught #wine classes at NYU & University of Chicago. What is your approach to teaching students about wine? #SommChat #WW

@drvino (Dr Vino): A. @KeeperColl Try to keep things fun & informative. Lots of people, particularly young people, are really interested in learning about wine. #SommChat

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): RT @RobertALoblaw: @drvino can you name a few underrated/undervalued regions/varietals for those who wish to expand horizons? #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@RobertALoblaw Why not try one grape and try across various regions? I’d go with cab franc, chenin or Riesling to start. #SommChat

@hkremer (hkremer): great idea RT @drvino Why not try one grape & try across various regions? I’d go with cab franc, chenin or Riesling to start. #SommChat

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): RT @terroirvino: @drvino when is a somm a somm & not just a dude (or lady) w/ fancy screw pull? Qualification vs exp. vs passion #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@terroirvino Yes, all three are important in a good somm. Also, reading the guest and connecting them with something THEY like. #SommChat

@DomaineSelect (DSWE): #WineWednesday, you know what that means…#SommChat. @KeeperColl @drvino

@MSPWineGuy (Peter Plaehn): @noblewines @KeeperColl @drvino #SommChat I think keg wine is valid if the quality is there. But let’s ask the Dr. his opinion…

@drvino (Dr Vino): I do like the trend toward short lists… #wellcurated RT @KeeperColl: RT @MSPWineGuy #SommChat

@drvino (Dr Vino): .@UvaBuena @mattreiser LOL! Well, then Loire #wines for you… or a copita. #SommChat

@aliasnicknora (Nick and Nora): @drvino @vtwinemedia I think this happened once. It was a nice cider style wine – I recommended it to my mom. #SommChat

@adriennebyard (Adrienne Byard): @drvino your answer is allowed to be as serious as a newly certified somm! #gowhoopi @KeeperColl #SommChat

@MeteorVineyard (Meteor Vineyard): #SommChat #somm is a #somm when combining passion, knowledge and humility. Diplomacy and deft guest reading also a must.

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): Q. @DrVino Opinion on using cork vs. screw-on caps? #WineWednesday #SommChat
