Gourmets of Wine > Announcement: Wine Blogging Wednesday #12 -- Drink Local. Real Local.
[LENNDEVOURS] Now, a year later, it's time for Wine Blogging Wednesday #12...and I'm taking the reins back as host (mostly because there was a scheduling snafu and I was left with an empty slot!)
[Next] Bulgarian Wine Tasting...
[Seattle Bon Vivant] Happiness is a glass of Sauternes: And the staff is not only über friendly but so knowledgeable about their wines. They'll go above and beyond the call of duty to assist you in locating that obscure little wine you are looking for or hook you up with a great bottle.
[Cook sister!] The WBW that wasn't...: The wines are made in an off-dry style, though, and are never cloying or sweet, but rather fruity with a creamy mouthfeel. In fact, if you are fed up with chardonnays but can't face bone dry and austere whites, this is a very desirable alternative (which is probably one of the reasons for its renewed popularity!!)
[Grab Your Fork - photos, reviews, travel, cooking] Grab Your Diary, 28 July - 22 August: Browse and sample organic food and wine at the first ever Organic Expo in Sydney. Free seminar presenters include Kylie Kwong and Stephanie Alexander.
[Food Blog S'cool] [calendar] More events to mark in your diary: Check out Jen Maiser's site Life Begins at 30 for more details on what else you can do to eat local during the month of August. I hope I am not being presumptious in suggesting she might be a good person to turn to if you have any questions or need any help or encouragement.

[Vinography.com] Vinography: a wine blog: Wine Blogging Wednesday #12: Drink Local: Even though I'm smack dab in the center of San Francisco, I think I can find a winery that is within 2 miles of my front door. Can you guess which one?
[Lennthompson.typepad.com] LENNDEVOURS: Proposal for a Wine Blogging Day: It must come from a New World wine nation that isn't the U.S., which leaves you places such as Australia, Argentina, New Zealand and Chile. Once you drink the wine (hopefully with friends!() you should post a picture of the bottle/label and write a little blurb with your impressions of the wine, what food you either did or would pair with it and, if possible, post an "official" tasting note for the wine.
[Vinography.com] Vinography: a wine blog: WBW2: Spanish Red Wine -- October 6th, 2004: The strength of the Euro pushes prices up and I don't want to exclude a lot of wines through an arbitrary price cap (it was certainly hard for me to find the last wine under $15). Also, I don't see any reason why if someone is interested in tasting and blogging about something more pricey we should stop them.
[Spittoon.biz] Spittoon - Announcing Wine Blogging Wednesday #7.: Valpolicella and Amarone are blends of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara, but I hope you will be a little more adventurous and look for Marzemino, Canaiolo Nero and Aglianico del Vulture instead.
