This past Wednesday marked the 34th edition of the blogosphere's virtual wine tasting event known as Wine Blogging Wednesday. In a remarkable feat of endurance and dedication, the host for this month's event, Catie, who runs the blog Wild Walla Walla Wine Woman, has already posted the roundup of reviews.
What is Wine Blogging Wednesday and what is a roundup? Each month a theme is chosen by a host blog, and wine lovers around the world drink and then review a wine according to that theme. They post these reviews on their individual blogs, and then the host writes up a report, providing links to the reviews from everyone who participated. The result is often a fantastic education on the particular type of wine or region that has been selected for the event.
This month's focus was Washington State Cabernets and the roundup features thirty reviews of such wines, for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!
