WBW#43 Coming This Wednesday, March 5th: Comfort Wines

February is the sneakiest month. It lulls you into thinking it's just like any other month, and then it pulls the rug out from under you a couple of days before you're ready. Well now it's March, and the first Wednesday of the month approaches, which means Wine Blogging Wednesday, the blogosphere's virtual wine tasting event is right around the corner.

This month's edition, the 43rd since we began the event, is hosted by Joel over at Wine Life Today. His theme for this month's event is Comfort Wines, which loosely translates into: buy and drink a wine that helps you get into that zone of calm comfort that only good wine can bring. Joel looks like he's gonna need it, as his daughter was born on Thursday of last week (congratulations !), which means he's not sleeping much these days.

We all have those wines that take us someplace special, and this month your participation in WBW#43 simply involves drinking one and then writing about the experience on your blog on or before Wednesday, March 5th.

I hope you'll join us. If you do, let Joel know by sending him an e-mail.
