@fabienlaine (Fabien Lainé): @dilekcaner So what brought you to the #wine planet #SommChat @KeeperColl

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @fabienlaine @KeeperColl A bottle of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. At first I thought it was a religious wine:) #SommChat

@demilove (Douglas Trapasso): Welcome to your guest! Congrats on your MW-Hope this isn’t too basic a ?, but what exactly -IS- a dissertation? – #SommChat

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): @KeeperColl @JohnMFodera great to see you at #SommChat

@KeeperColl (Keeper Collection): @KeeperColl @demilove hope you are staying inside for warmth:) #SommChat

@demilove (Douglas Trapasso): @dilekcaner @KeeperColl – Would you call yourself a “latecomer” to wine/rest. career? (I am longing to make switch, myself) – #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @demilove @KeeperColl Sort of a complex subject now. Dissertation has a different meaning in the UK I think. #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @demilove @KeeperColl than what we have in the US. The old “dissertation” process is being replaced by a #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @demilove @KeeperColl Research Paper now. In a nutshell, it is a detailed research into some aspect of wine. #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @demilove @KeeperColl that is quite focused and very specifically defined #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @demilove @KeeperColl Definitely! #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @demilove @KeeperColl But people are very welcoming and it is easy to make the switch. #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @demilove @KeeperColl Feel free to email me at if I can help in any way. #SommChat

@m_arcon (Marc Dröfke): @dilekcaner @KeeperColl do you think turkish wines are underrated? #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW):@dilekcaner @m_arcon @KeeperColl Not enough exposure yet. Some people also think that they are oxidized and sweet wines #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @m_arcon @KeeperColl But that’s far from truth. We should get them tasted by as many ppl as we can. #SommChat

@demilove (Douglas Trapasso): @KeeperColl – What did you discover about WA Syrah when you wrote your dissertation? #SommChat

@m_arcon (Marclekcaner): @KeeperColl what is the best way to train my palate and step up the game? #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): @dilekcaner @m_arcon @KeeperColl Taste! BUT have a system. Start with a small group of varieties, taste them every day #SommChat

@dilekcaner (Dilek Caner MW): ): @m_arcon @KeeperColl Then add others in time. You’ll improve very fast. #SommChat
