Dead Arm? Footbolt? Sinister Hand? Goats du Roam? The Hammer? Little Miss Dangerous? Richard The Lionheart? Where do these people come up with these wine names anyway? (Yes those are all real wines). We'll get to find out in January when our dear friend Pim hosts the next Wine Blogging Wednesday with the theme of wackily-named wines.
Any wine, any varietal, any price, just make sure it has a strange name -- the more bizarre the better. If this weren't such a brilliant idea, we might suspect her of choosing a theme where it wouldn't matter if she bought the wrong varietal.
Should be loads of fun, so keep an eye out as you do your holiday wine shopping.
