Twitter wine, under the label Fledgling Wine, is a collaboration between the social medai site and San Francisco-based winery Crushpad. Twitter wine is a charitable side venture with proceeds going to Room to Read, an organization that encourages literacy for children around the world.

Twitter wine comes in two varieties: a 2009 Fledgling Pinot Noir and a 2009 Fledgling Chardonnay. At $20 a bottle (or $240 for a case) you can get drunk knowing you contributed to a socially responsible cause--and you can tweet about it!
