There’s a thing out there on the web called Wine Blogging Wednesday. This is the 19th monthly blogging session, but my first. I’m a little nervous.
This month’s theme (hosted over at WINExpression.com) is When in Rhone:
This month’s Wine Blogging Wednesday theme “When in Rhone” aims to help
us become acquainted with these varietals that are being used all over
the world. Winemakers have decided to ‘do as the Rhonins do’ and
transport and clone the varietals in rich soils from Australia and New
Zealand to the warm central coast of California, and the vines are
adapting quite nicely. Consumers are becoming aware of the high caliber
wines crafted from these distinct grapes in areas other than the Rhone.
Events like the Rhone Rangers, and Hospice du Rhone
are continuing to gain recognition and popularity as they showcase the
latest efforts by the winemakers focusing on these varietals.
So tomorrow I"ll be writing about a wine from the Cotes du Rhone appellation. Kevin and I are drinking it tonite.
