It doesn’t seem possible that it has been nearly 7 years since I started participating in Wine Blogging Wednesday our virtual wine tasting event which has been infrequent for the past 18 months or so. And that’s a shame since the wine blogging community seems a bit more fragmented than back in 2005 when I posted my first entry in the series. With Twitter, Facebook and now Google+ there are many ways for bloggers to interact and talk about wine but these events disappear over time while what is posted on our blogs endures.
Luckily my enthusiasm for Wine Blogging Wednesday is shared by other bloggers and I’m pleased to report that the event will return on January 18, 2012 hosted by the Corkdork. And the theme our host has chosen is one that should produce a lot of interesting posts: what wine sparked your interest in wine? For me, that would be a wine from a certain vineyard in Dry Creek Valley but since I have told that story here before I will revisit another tale from my path to wine geekdom with stops in the early and late 1980’s. The wines are long gone, or prohibitively expensive, but I will track down some more recent bottlings of these wines to share.
I hope to see a lot of wine bloggers participating this time. Join us if you can next month with your own story of what your wine “spark” was.
