Heard of IMBB? Well look out for WWWBW!

Those who are even occasional readers of the quadrant of the blogosphere that touches on all things food will have heard of the virtual event called "Is My Blog Burning?" in which various blogging amateur chefs around the world take a theme like "soup" or BBQ and execute a dish, then blog about it on the same date. Cool huh? Well the same thing is about to happen for wine bloggers. Proposed by Lenn Thompson of Lenndeavors, September 1, 2004 will be the first World Wide Wine Blogging Wednesday. Participants will purchase, consume, and then review a New World Merlot under $15. I'm looking forward to participating. RSVP at Lenndeavors.

I've had some inexpensive but nice Merlots from South Africa. Unfortunately it's been a while and I can't recommend any specific ones, but it might be nice to try something that's not from one of the regions Lenn mentions.
