Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
