Ritetag for Wine Merchants’ Twitter Marketing

I’ve been playing around with my new favourite toy, ritetag, and stumbled upon a set of hashtags perfect for any wine merchants out there. For those who don’t know, Ritetag is a Twitter tool that helps you optimise your tweets. It colour-codes hashtags, White (unused), Blue (good), Green (great), Red (overused), so you can easily see if you’re using the right hashtags in your tweets, hence the name I guess!
