Attend the DrinkLocalWine Conference this Saturday...via Twitter

The fourth annual DrinkLocalWine Conference, which takes place tomorrow at the

St. Cajetan's Center

, has sold out, but that doesn't mean you can't take part in the fun.

Over the past three years, the Twitter Taste-off has become a popular part of the conference with nearly ten million "tweets" and "re-tweets" shared since it began.

From 2 to 5 p.m. attendees are invited to taste two wines from each of the participating wineries and then tweet their thoughts, which will be displayed on projection screens at the conference. While it might be difficult to taste two wines from 23 vineyards at home, it's easy enough to pick up a bottle or two of local wine and get in on the discussion -- especially with help from Westword's Swirl Girl, Kendra Anderson.

Follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtags #drinklocal, #colwine and #Nomacorc (the cork manufacturer that sponsors the event) and check out the full list of participating Colorado wineries here.
