I've been traveling on business, so I'm late to the game on this one, but Wine Blogging Wednesday #7 has been announced for a date of March 9th. Join the global virtual tasting event by drinking and writing about a bottle containing an obscure red varietal. This month's event is being hosted by Andy over at Spittoon.Biz. He's laid down the law as to what's acceptable and what's not. Don't even think about drinking a wine that's got any of the following varietals in it: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc, Pinotage, Gamay, or Zinfandel.
Hmm. Maybe it's tine for me to go hunting for some Hungarian wines.
