You're Invited to #WinePW: The Feast Nearby - Grateful for Local Vintners and Seasonal Foods

We just wrapped our #WinePW event on Saturday, so I'm ready to extend the invitation for next month's adventure. I'm hostess! 

Join us for 'The Feast Nearby'
Wine Pairings with Local Vintners and Seasonal Foods 

So, for November's iteration of #winePW, I'm inviting all my blogging pals to showcase - and share - wine from their favorite local vintner along with some dishes featuring seasonal foods. "The Feast Nearby - Grateful for Local Vintners and Seasonal Foods" is happening on Saturday, November 12.

Let me say another word about what we're looking for on this theme. You may define 'local' however you wish. Make it a 10-mile radius, a 100-mile radius, or maybe it's from your home town - even if you don't live there anymore. As far as seasonal foods, I have truffles, persimmons, apples, and pumpkins on my mind.  Get creative, and join us for the #winePW fun!

Details for participation
Are you ready to jump in and participate in the thirtieth #winePW? Here are the details…

Send an email to tell me you're in: Include your blog url, Twitter handle, link to your Pinterest profile, and any other social media detail. If you know your blog post title now, include that...but you can send me that a bit closer to the event, I'd like to get a sense of who's participating and give some shoutouts and links as we go. The email is constantmotioncamilla AT

Send your post title to me by Monday, November 7, to be included in the preview post. I will do a preview post shortly after getting the titles, linking to your blogs. Your title should include " #winePW " (Note: I'd like us all to use the hashtag in the title to make it easier to see the posts getting shared on Twitter).

Publish your post between 12:01 a.m-7:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday, November 12. You can always schedule your post in advance if you will be tied up around then.

Include a link to the other #winePW participants in your post, and a description of what the event is about. I'll provide the html code you can easily put in your initial post--which will link to people's general blog url--then updated code for the permanent links to everyone's #winePW posts.

Get social! After the posts go live, please visit your fellow bloggers posts' to comment and share. I'll follow-up later with some specific strategies for that social sharing.

Sponsored posts OK if clearly disclosed. Please be sure to disclose if your post is sponsored or if you are describing wine or other products for which you have received a free sample.

Live #winePW Twitter Chat November 12, 11 a.m. ET: Participating bloggers and others interested in the subject will connect via a live Twitter chat. It's a nice bring way to bring in others interested in the subject who didn't get a chance to share a blog post. You can definitely still join the blog event if you're not available for the live chat.

OK, that's all I can think of for now. For more of the backstory on Wine Pairing Weekend, check out David’s original post introducing the idea. Please let me know your thoughts and questions in the comments; or you can also email me at is constantmotioncamilla AT Cheers!
