Wine Blogging Wednesday, the monthly online virtual wine tasting event that takes place on the first Wednesday of every month was near and dear to my heart this month. Hosted by Fatemeh, over at Gastronomie, the theme was wines that are made in quantities under 250 cases. Fatemeh reports that a full 29 bloggers found wines that qualified, and the tasting notes look interesting so far (Fatemeh hasn't finished posting all of them yet). So at your leisure, go check out the wrap-up and you're likely to find out about some small production gems that you've never heard of.
