People worth following on Twitter


Twitter really works for wine: allowing people to send concise thoughts on wines as soon as they drink them, news on what is happening in the vineyards around the world, as well as other wine-based pearls of wisdom. So, if you have never used Twitter before and are interested in wine, we'd recommend you give it a go.

However, there are thousands of Twitter users who tweet about wine (known commonly as "Twinos"). Below are a few of our favourites to start you off:
