After attending the recent 2011 Ecommerce Brasil event in beautiful and expansive Sao Paulo, I nearly immediately attended the leading ecommerce event in the USA, Shop.org’s Annual Summit.

SOCIAL MEDIA WINE CLUB: WINE PARTY KITS
To add a twist to our Social Media Wine Club offering, and with the holidays just around the corner, our friends at VineCrowd are extending our Social Media Club community the #SMCWineParty in a box offer.
Wine Kits allow you to host a mixer for 12 people with 3 hand-selected wines from top boutique producers who keep their productions low to focus on quality. The kits also included everything you need to host a wine party, including tasting note pads, pencils, corkscrew, tasting notes & specs for each wine, food pairing suggestions. All you need to do it pick up some snacks, invite your friends and you're ready to go!
