Wine Blogging Wednesday 75: The “Single’s Night” Wrap-Up!

Vinted on April 5, 2012 binned in wine blogging, wine blogging wednesday, wine review

And you’d thought I’d forgotten all about wrapping up WBW75, didn’t you?

By all accounts Wine Blogging Wednesday #75, the theme of which was “Single’s Night” and focused on the wine blog-o-world choosing and reviewing (on the same day) single vineyard designate wines, was a big success and I want to personally thank everyone who contributed their time, thoughts, energy and wines into making it such a fun time!

Special thanks also to WBW organizers Tim Elliott and Lenn Thompson for letting me unleash on WBW yet again. I think I had them a little nervous when I “crowd-sourced” the theme ahead of time, but we all survived.

After the jump you’ll find a list of all of the WBW75 entries that appeared in comments here, or over at the main WBW website, or on twitter or Facebook the day of the event.

I’m not not reviewing wines this week with badges, etc., in lieu of showcasing all of the other reviews that were a part of this great event. Here’s to the WBW75 contributors, and to many, many more WBW events to come!…

#WBW75 “Singles Night”: Pinot From Alto, By Way Of Norse Mythology

Vinted on March 21, 2012 binned in best of, wine blogging wednesday, wine review

Welcome to Wine Blogging Wednesday #75, people!

I’m thrilled to be hosting WBW this month, and I’m stoked to see what you all will be tasting throughout the day today, in keeping with our theme: “Singles Night!” For the background on the theme, check out the announcement post – the short story is that this month we are celebrating wines that are made from grapes grown on a single vineyard.

So get yourself some single vineyard wine, blog about it, comment here about it, or tweet about it (#WBW75)!

I’m kicking things off with a single vineyard wine that has been sitting in the bowels of the basement sample pool for some time, but that I’ve been excited about trying ever since I cracked the cardboard on its shipping box. It’s a familiar grape, and maybe even a familiar region, but not necessarily a grape/region combo that would be all that familiar for many of you…

Special Announcement: Wine Blogging Wednesday 75 “Singles Night” On March 21st! #WBW75

Vinted on February 21, 2012 binned in wine blogging wednesday, wine tasting

Ladies and gentle-guzzlers…

I’m pleased to announce that 1WineDude.com will be hosting Wine Blogging Wednesday #75 (holy crap! seventy-five?!??) on Wednesday March 21st!

The entire idea behind WBW is to get YOU involved, tasting, and talking – so please share and retweet the living hell out of this because it’s only going to be as awesome as YOU make it (and you don’t do anything un-awesome, right?).

And let’s not even get into how awesome it is to be part of something that has run on-line for 75 consecutive months. Sh*t, most wine brands probably don’t last 75 consecutive months these days!

WBW 75’s theme is “Singles Night” – which does not mean that you should be drinking alone (not that there’s anything necessarily wrong if you do… we’re not judging you here…); it means we’re going to taste and talk about wines that come from single vineyards. One of the most special aspects of wine is that I can connect you with a particular time (a vintage) and a particular place on earth (a vineyard). Few other foodstuffs can offer such magic, so on March 21st we’re going to go big for numero 75 and celebrate both.

Here’s the skinny on how you can participate in #WBW75 “Singles Night”…

Wine Blogging Wednesday 67: The Wrap-Up!

Vinted on April 5, 2010 binned in wine blogging wednesday

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the 67th Wine Blogging Wednesday

It was a blast hosting the event, and I was mightily impressed with the high quality of the articles that were written around the theme of choosing what wine you’d use to introduce white wine drinkers to the pleasures of wed wine imbibing.  I’m gonna have to become a better writer to keep up with you people! 

Also, I should get my act together and post these wrap-ups more quickly after the event… oh well…

For those looking for an easy answer recommendation of what red to use on white wine drinkers, you’re out of luck - we got a lot of variety in the answers to this March’s WBW challenge.  Fortunately, many of the participants have conducted field research on willing (?) victims, so you can witness the impacts and specific results (successful and otherwise) via their posts.

I thought it might be fun to wrap-up the WBW proceedings by grouping the participating blog posts by variety / wine region / style, so that you could compare and contrast the different results within similar wine choices – which were much more varied than you might first expect from folks recommending similar wines.

So, without any further fanfare from me, here are the results. 

Ok, I lied, I have one more bit of fanfare first: If you’re a wine blogger, get yourself in touch with WBW founder Lenn Thompson with theme ideas, and offer up your blog as a place to host one of the future WBW events, ’cause it’s a hell of a lot of fun, and you’re sure to learn some interesting shizz after reading the contributing articles!…
