    Drago Centro is asking Twitter followers to guess the wine and win every Monday

    The making-food biz has truly arrived in our 140-character times.

    It wasn't all that long ago that Neal Fraser of Grace whipped up a little sea urchin dish courtesy of people tweeting suggestions. Now sommelier Michael Shearin of Drago Centro is sending out Twitter-y clues about various vinos. The prize? The bottle of wine, if you are the first follower to make the correct guess. (You'll be drinking it at Drago, note.)

    The guess-and-win game made solely for grown-ups kicked off on Monday, October 26th and will run on Mondays for the foreseeable future. You can follow along and even show off your grape-based acumen at @DragoCentro on Twitter.

    And how difficult are the clues? Here's the one from October 26th: "Made from a grape that's native to its region however, it's that region's 2nd most important grape. Sometimes aged in oak."

    A winner knew his vintages and named it (Sommelier Shearin was talking about Prunotto Costamiole Barbera d'Asti '00, but then you probably knew that).

    Do you know your sips? Log onto @DragoCentro on Monday, November 2nd and enjoy the virtual wine tasting.
