Snowpocalypse! Wine tips from The Twitterverse

Yet another winter storm rips up the Atlantic coast. Areas that just got hit with two feet of snow may get another two feet starting today. What’s a wine lover to do? We turn to The Twitter:

Robert Parker has food-wine pairings

Mike Steinberger contemplates recruiting child laborers.

Ray Isle comments about Shackleton’s whisky stash.

Based in Tuscany, James Suckling has nothing to say about snow, but offers his (“false”?) opinion about Harlan in re: this epic thread.

  1. Hunkering down and enjoying good wine was definitely the best way to go during Snowmaggedon 2010! There was just enough time last night to head back out to restock before the snow starts again today.

  2. Hunkering down, indeed. Does it count if you’re just getting torrential rains, rather than snow? I guess not, because I can’t really tell my boss, “hey can’t make it in today, I can’t get the car out of the driveway due to rain,” or, “the Metro stopped running on account of all the rain,” especially since we have no “metro” here in coastal North Carolina. Oh, how I long for just a little snow, to keep me home, bundled up, unable to leave the house, drinking a great CDP or some other hearty red!

  3. Who hear of snow and Châteauneuf du Pape as pairing? Wine become as too cold and dilution! Impossible of the pairing!

    That is joke.

    But Serge have big dispute of the Châteauneuf du Pape and onion soup of the pairing. Big dispute. Is so called Robert Parker practicing of scorched earth palate? Tannin marries with salt have big argument. Wine taste of the astringent of the bitterness not hear of battle of Stalingrad.

    That is not joke. Sommeliers of world unite in denounce.
