What do bloggers drink when they can't stray far from home? The 43 answers to this question can be found in the roundup to this month's Wine Blogging Wednesday, the virtual tasting event where food and wine bloggers taste wines according to a specific theme.
This month's tasting, the 12th, marking a full year since the event began in 2004 was hosted by Lenn at Lenndevours, who conceived of the concept.
This month's theme was "Drink Local. Real Local." And bloggers were given strict instructions to drink a wine from the winery closest to their house. This led to all sorts of interesting wines, and a record turnout for the event.
