WBW#16 Roundup Has Been Posted

I've been doing the Wine Blogging Wednesday virtual tasting event for, well, 16 months now and I gotta say this month's event was one of my favorites. I love the idea of forty bloggers from all over the world going out, buying a wine based on the label alone, and then blogging about it. We can thank Derrick at An Obsession with Food for the theme and for hosting this month's event. He has just posted a roundup of all the reviews, and as anyone who knows Derrick might expect, he has taken it to the next level and even set up a Flickr group for the wine bottle photos. There were some really excellently designed wine labels chosen, and some of them even represented good wine in the bottle!

Check out the wrap-up for all the bright shiny things.
