Just 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.
