A few months ago, I wrote about the great system that Erin and Michelle at Grape-Juice.ca use for rating wines. Great fun at all levels, and a well-needed dose of laid-back unpretentiousness for the wine blogging world.
It is a spirit they are now bringing to the Wine Blogging Wednesdays, as they get ready to host the 47th edition of the monthly online rendez-vous. Their theme, in a really fun nod to Sesame Street, is Brought to You by the Letter S. Which means that you can put anything you want into it, as long as there is some connection to the letter : sangiovese, sauvignon blanc, Savennières, sweet, Strewn Vineyards, sherry, single vineyard, sémillon… That’s just off the top of my head.
The tasting is scheduled for July 9 – it’s a Wednesday, in case you’re wondering. I learned about it through Dr Debs, from Good Wine Under 20$, who hosted WBW 47, and I’m relaying the news because the official site of the Wine Blogging Wednesdays remains inactive since early May. I’m still wondering what’s going on there, and I hope things will get back to normal as soon as possible : after four years of tastings, the WBW has great momentum, with over 60 participants in May, and it would be a shame if that was to dissipate. Anybody has an answer – better yet, a solution?
