WBW#27 Roundup Has Been Posted: Ice Ice Baby

wbw_icon.jpgJust in time for folks to head out and pick up some nice dessert wine for Thanksgiving dinner to go with that pumpkin pie, how about a few dozen reviews of ice wines? This month's edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday, the blogosphere's virtual wine tasting event was hosted by Lisa over at The Kitchen Chick. The theme of the our twenty-seventh event was ice wines, and boy did bloggers deliver. Who knew ice wines were made in so many places around the world? From New York State to Michigan to Spain to Slovenia to Australia, the reviews and the wines are pretty interesting.

If you ever were interested in picking up a bottle of this rare nectar, you'd be hard pressed to find a better collection of information to fuel your thirst. Check it out.

And while you're thinking about Wine Blogging Wednesday, you might consider participating in next month's edition, Wine Blogging Wednesday #28, coming up on December 13th. Hosted by the blog Culinary Fool, it will focus on sparkling wine from places other than Champagne.

Following up on your "Now THAT"S Cultivating a Market", I have been tracking it down and so far it does not appear to be a governmental organization but rather a private, not so scrupulous, attempt to cash in on the new China market. Speaking of cashing in, the Chinese love ice wine and will shortly be making their own version. Good marketing ploy, play up the health angle. Look at the following site to get the info on Chinese icewines. (http://www.wines-info.com/html/2006-11/189/2006112217538984.html)
I noticed that the reviews of Icewines did not include a British Columbia Icewine. I am sorry I didn't get a chance to post a review. They are truly delicious, especially the Merlot and Chardonnay Icewines. I will be tasting a number of BC Icewines for the monthly column I write for a local magazine and anyone interested can contact me through my blog. Happy Thanksgiving
