WBW5 Wrap Up Has Been Posted

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.

Peter May is a fine fellow and incredibly knowledgable about all things Pinotage. Readers might like to look into his pinotage club which, if you are in London or South Africa, holds regular tastings.

Just to clarify, Peter May is the gentleman referenced above who runs the web site about wacky wine names.

speaking of wine blogs, Jamie Goode's blog that is linked to his site wineanorak.com is really one of the best. He's just helped me immeasurably in preparing a presentation on Douro reds. And I think he's a humblingly great wine writer.
