WBW#19 Has Been Announced: When in Rhone...

wbw_icon.jpgThe next edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday, the Web's only virtual wine tasting event, has been announced. This month's tasting, hosted by Jathan over at Wineexpression.com, is taking all the participating bloggers on a wine tasting tour of Rhone blends, either from the New world or the Old. Not sure what qualifies as a Rhone blend? Jathan has provided a list as well as links to some appropriate resources for folks to learn more. If you've got a blog and want to participate, just drink a wine, take some notes, and post them on Wednesday March 8th, 2006 along with an e-mail to the host. Last month over 44 people around the world participated.

So bust out your Chateaneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Cotes-du-Rhone, Cornas, Hermitage, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Viognier, Marsanne, Rousanne, or any other of your obscure favorites.
