Behind The Scenes: #WinePW Writers On Wine And Food From Uruguay

If you follow along on L’Occasion or our social media, you’ve noticed an uptick in coverage of South American wine, Uruguayan wine in particular. Hopefully, it’s been enjoyable, because this weekend I’m hosting a wine writers’ collaboration event—Wine Pairing Weekend—during which a group of wine, food and travel bloggers zoom in on a particular topic. On Saturday, February 9, 2019, at 10am that topic is Uruguay!


Here’s what to expect…we each write a post and join together for a chat. And YOU are invited, no need to do anything but pop on Twitter and find us to say hello and ask questions.

Join us on our blogs and on twitter with the hashtag #WinePW to go behind the curtain on our discoveries:
