What do you get when more than thirty bloggers drink more than 60 Portuguese wines? A lot of drunk bloggers. But you also happen to get a lot of good Portuguese wine reviews. Last Wednesday was Wine Blogging Wednesday. For those unfamiliar with this event, it is a virtual wine tasting party hosted by a blogger who chooses a theme, and then as many bloggers who care to drink ad review a wine based on that theme.
Last week the 38th monthly incarnation of Wine Blogging Wednesday was hosted by Ryan and Gabriella who write the blog Catavino, and they requested that all participants review Portuguese table wines. While the wines were somewhat difficult for some participants to acquire, there was a great turn-out. Check out the roundup of all the reviews and you're very likely to learn a thing or two about Portuguese wine, if only by checking out the nifty map and other data that Ryan and Gabriella have pulled together as part of their summary of the event.
At the very least, you can get yourself some stellar recommendations on some quite excellent wine that's likely to be a good value as well.
