WBW#28 Roundup Has Been Posted

wbw_icon.jpgJust in time for anyone dashing out to pick up a few bottles of bubbly for the holidays comes the results of Wine Blogging Wednesday #28. In this latest incarnation of the Web's monthly virtual wine tasting event held by bloggers around the world, Brenda over at Culinary Fool asked everyone to review non-champagne sparkling wines. Sadly, this is the third of the 28 events that I was unable to participate in, so I'm vicariously participating by reading all the reviews posted in Brenda's roundup.

The roundup is offered in two parts, the first for all the overachieving bloggers who sampled more than one sparkling wine, and the second for everyone else who only reviewed one wine apiece. All told, more than 25 individuals reviewed more than 40 non-champagne sparkling wines for your reading pleasure. You no longer have any excuse for not getting a good bottle to pop open at your holiday festivities.

Check out the reviews.

I'm sorry you weren't able to join us for this round, but it sounds like you were doing your own sort of celebrating anyhow!

Have fun in NZ (so jealous...) and thanks for the post!

I couldn't take part either - I even had two bottles already chilled for the event, but Menu 4 Hope left me with zero time to drink them, let alone write about them!

Well, I will drink them of course... presently... I will definitely crack one opene after my last menu for Hope post tomorrow, for sure!

I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way
keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

website, as here every data is quality based information.

If you live in an region exactly where the temperatures turn into bitter chilly,
your dog can put on coats and jackets over sweatshirts and sweaters.

ll either be completely proud of his new attire or extremely bothered) regardless
of his like or dislike, this will form an impression and an identity that will not
be forgotten. One of the hottest accessories in dog
fashion right now is blingy dog collars.
