WBW#37 Roundup Has Been Posted

wbw_icon.jpgAlbariño, Tannat, Verdelho, Ribeyrenc, Fer Servadou, Ribolla Gialla, Poulsard, Pigato, Teroldigo Rotaliano, Touriga Nacional, Xinomovaro. Do you recognize all of these as grape varieties? And what do they all have in common? Each made an appearance in this month's Wine Blogging Wednesday, the blogosphere's virtual wine tasting event. Hosted this month by Tyler, who runs the blog Dr. Vino, WBW#37 had 54 bloggers from around the world reviewing wines made from indigenous varietals of all kinds.

This was one of the best turnouts in a while for Wine Blogging Wednesday, and certainly one of the better themes that we've had in some time, I believe. People got to taste some pretty interesting wines. It's quite an education just to read through some of the reviews. I really suggest you check them out. You'll certainly learn something, and you might discover your next favorite wine in the process.

And if you're all excited to taste indigenous varietals, then you'll have a chance to do it again in October with Wine Blogging Wednesday #38 which will focus on Portuguese table wine (i.e. not sweet).
