April 3rd, 2011 - Rick Bakas visits McLaren Vale.

Rick Bakas is a thought leader in the world of wine and social media - on twitter alone Rick has over 50,000 followers which makes him one of the most influencial social media proponents. Rick was invited to visit McLaren Vale and catch up with leading, local wine social media users. Louise and Joch from Battle of Bosworth joined Janet from Mollydooker and myself for a tasting and conversation with Rick. To make the tasting more pleasant Adam Tripp-Smith hosted Rick at the Salopian Inn and served up a two course meal.

Jeff Wright from the McLaren Vale Beer Company and Luke Tyler from d'Arenberg also tasted through the line up.


Battle of Bosworth's newly released 'Spring Seed Co - Sav Blanc' was served with entree. Over mains we tasted 2007 Lazy Ballerina - Tatachilla Single vineyard Shiraz, 2008 Mollydooker Velvet Glove, 2008 Battle of Bosworth 'White Boar' Shiraz and 2008 Hugh Hamilton Saperavi.

For the rest of 2011, Rick will be traveling the world educating businesses on how to build their brands online. He will be visiting NYC, London, Mexico, Sydney, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Vancouver, Adelaide, Munich, Napa and Perth!

We wish him well on his trip.
