The 33rd monthly edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday, the blogosphere's monthly virtual wine tasting party will take place on May 16th. For those unfamiliar with this event, every month a pre-determined blog owner selects a theme for a wine tasting, and anyone who wants to participate must simply review a wine that fits that theme on the appointed day.
This month's theme, hosted by Marcus, who runs the blog Dr. Weingolb, is value priced wines from the Languedoc Roussillon appellation of southeastern France. Marcus has asked us to select wines between $15 and $30 from any of the Languedoc's many sub-appellations.
So get out there and grab a Corbieres, a Minervois, a Côtes du Roussillon, a Saint-Chinian or any of a dozen others and join in the fun. You don't have to be a wine blogger to participate. Heck, you don't even have to be a blogger (though you will need to put up a post somewhere to participate). Let me know if you need help.
A wine book like no other. Photographs, essays, and wine recommendations. Learn more.
