As this meme about Wine 2.0 has made it’s way around the blogosphere, it has always been an international discussion; as long as you speak English, that is. So through the magic of trackbacks and keyword feeds, I’ve been tracking the discussion in some Italian wine blogs. Through the use of Google translations and my rudimentary understanding of Italian, I’m able to get the gist of most of the discussion.
It’s good to see a popular blog like Aristide post a nice write-up on Bottletalk and WineLog. Judging by the comments, it would seem there are fewer folks drinking the “Wine 2.0 Kool-Aid” in Italy than us English speakers. I also found a blog called “Vino 2.0” which seems to have been created after I started my writing on the subject here (Grazie for the Second Life coverage, Giusy).
I love the discussion no matter which language it’s written in.
Vino 2.0 says
Hello 🙂 Thanks to you!
The first time I have heard about ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œwine 2.0ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚? was here, in your blog, because I subscribed your feed some months ago.
Here I knew some other wonderful wine blogs, and I also created an aggregate podcast (WinePodMix, http://feeds.feedburner.com/WinePodMix ) in order better to follow you all.
When I opened my little blog I linked it (it is in the sidebar) because your discussions and initiative are very very interesting and I wish italian wine lovers know you.
Merry Christmas and happy new year!
Your English is certainly much better than my Italian, so I really appreciate you making some of what we are talking about available to more wine lovers.
