I was too busy drinking Malbec on a river raft last week in Northern Patagonia to participate in Wine Blogging Wednesday. Besides, a white wine of a single varietal (the theme of this month's event, hosted by Wine For Newbies) wouldn't have gone well with our beef stuffed with smoked bacon. While I'm not sorry to have been stuck on the crystalline waters of the Rio Nimay, I am a little sorry that I didn't have a chance to participate in what looks like a great instance of our monthly wine tasting event.. A roundup has been posted where you can read reviews of over forty single varietal white wines that aren't Chardonnay, Riesling, or Sauvignon Blanc. It looks like folks managed to find some great, even obscure varietals. Check it out, and stay tuned for the announcement of next month's event.
