The next installment of the monthly virtual wine tasting event known as Wine Blogging Wednesday has been announced. It is being hosted this month by Jens of Cincinnati Wine Garage, and he has chosen New World Pinot Noir as the theme.
Jens doesn't just mean New World (traditionally anywhere but France) but Brand Spanking New World which he says means anywhere but France AND the West Coast of the United States. So that means we're left with New Zealand, South Africa, England, Australia, Chile, New York State, Spain, and a smattering of other tiny places that are edging in on the French and Calif-Oreg-Wash Pinot Noir empires.
In any case, check back with Jens on Wednesday, October 5th to read all the tasting notes.
