It seems like is was just a few days ago that I announced the next edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday but it has been nearly 3 weeks. So just a friendly reminder that WBW 71, “Rhones Not From The Rhône,” is in just two days.
And it’s easy to participate; just pick up a wine made mostly from grapes best known from The Rhône but not made there, taste it and post your notes to your blog. No blog? Well email your entry to me and I will post them up on the Wine Blogging Wednesday Posterous. But you could also blog on your own Posterous, Tumblr or even Twitter profile. I’m hoping to see a large turnout this month and find some great Rhone-styled wines from regions other than Frances’ Rhone Valley.
Need more inspiration? Check out Jay McInerney’s piece on Viognier from this past weekends’ Wall Street Journal. And don’t forget to use our hashtag #wbw71 when you announce your entry on Twitter or Facebook.
