The fifteenth incarnation of Wine Blogging Wednesday, the blogging world’s virtual wine tasting event, is coming next month and its theme is close to my heart. As is the host. My neighbor across the bay, Fatemeh, who runs the blog Gastronomie, will be the master of ceremonies for this next tasting, and as the theme she has selected wines made in quantities of less than 250 cases. And of course, that’s a wonderful thing.
So if you have a blog, go out and find a small production wine and pop the cork by Wednesday November 2nd, and then write up a review.
It may be challenging for some of you to find such micro production wines, but I urge you to persevere. Stay away from the largest, most commercial wine stores and visit the smaller stores, or even consider asking at a restaurant with an excellent wine list next time you’re in for dinner. While more difficult to track down, these wines are invariably worth the effort.
