Chez Pim has posted the wrap up to this month's global virtual tasting event: Wine Blogging Wednesday. The theme was "wacky wine names" and I gotta say, people found some real winners. Mad Housewife? Suckfizzle Augusta? Red Rock Underarm? Bad Impersonator? Ten Minutes by Tractor? Sinister Hand? Yes those were just some of the great names on offer in this version of WBW. With nearly 40 entries it almost doubled the participation in past events, and I swear about 4 new wine blogs popped out of the woodwork just to participate (and have been added to my list).
If you're interested in wacky wine names in general, Pete actually has a website dedicated to them.
A wine book like no other. Photographs, essays, and wine recommendations. Learn more.
