Twitter Taste Live is surely one of the most exciting things going on in the online wine world today... and I'm thrilled to be hosting for the first time on November 21 at 8 p.m.

What was once a monthly event has grown to the point that I can barely keep up with all of the TTL goings on, but I'm really excited to tell you about the one I'm hosting later this month.

I know what you're all thinking: "Which New York winery has Lenn worked with on this?" Well, this time around anyway, the answer is "None of them." As dedicated as I am to drinking locally produced wines, for this event I'm working with owner-winemaker Judd Wallenbrock of Humanitas Wines. I've written about Humanitas before because I love what they are doing -- making small lots of wines (literally in Judd's garage) and donating all of the profits to charity. All. Of. The. Profits.

As we head into the holiday season, how can you not love the idea of a winery doing something like that?

This Drink Charitably edition of Twitter Taste live is a joint venture between Humanitas Wines,,, and Twitter Taste LIVE. We'll be bringing together members of the wine blogging community, wine trade and consumers all over the
world for what we hope becomes one of the largest online wine tastings in history.
