It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in Wine Blogging Wednesday, the monthly, worldwide virtual wine tasting started in 2004 by Lenn Thompson of the New York Cork Report blog. In fact it’s been over 2 years since I took part in WBW 52. But the event carried on for several more months until going on hiatus after WBW 69 this past May.
But the WBW train is starting up again with Ryan & Gabriella Opaz from Catavino hosting the 70th edition on February 16th. Consistent with their focus on Iberian wine, they have chosen a rather broad theme of any wine from Spain. Of course Spain makes a number of different styles of wine from the legendary reds of Rioja to the distinctive wines of Priorat to sparking wines and an entire world of Sherry. All the hosts ask is to post our notes by February 16th, tweet using the hashtag #wbw70 and email them a link to your post.
I’ll be podcasting again for this edition and already have an idea of what the wines will be. Join us if you can.
