That multiplicitous multi-national virtual wine tasting event known as Wine Blogging Wednesday will take place next month on July 6th. July's theme will be Off Dry wines, courtesy of our host Beau, over at Basic Juice.
Beau has a nice explanation of what off-dry means in terms of wine, and he's even been so kind as to illustrate it with photographs, in case you need a little emotional stimulation as well. The short story is that we're looking for wines with just a hint of residual sugar left, making them just slightly sweet, but not the super sweet that you'd expect out most dessert wine.
So if you've got access to a blog, and a corkscrew, join us in July.
A wine book like no other. Photographs, essays, and wine recommendations. Learn more.
