in Wine Blogging Wednesday

Q – what’s red, alcoholic, South African and featured on this blog tomorrow?

A – It’s Wine Blogging Wednesday, featuring my chosen theme of South African reds! 

If you haven’t bought a bottle yet, check out my buying tips here and then dash out to your local wine merchant and get shopping!  Then dash home and get drinking, eating and writing. 

I had my bottle on Sunday night and it was a goodie!  Look forward to sharing it with all of you and hearing what everyone else drank.

Hi Jeanne!
I posted a trackback but for some reason my contact info didn’t come across so I’m leaving a comment, too. Thanks for your great background info on SA wines and for getting me out to try something new!

WBW #6: South African Reds

Bordeaux people are from Mars; balanced, scientific, rational people. Burgundy people, on the other hand, are artistic, tempermental, Venusian prima-donnas.

Hi Brenda, Moira, Sam, Derrick, Fatemeh, Jens and Alice!
Thank you all so much for joining in – and I’m thrilled to see that pretty much all of your tastings were successful – hurrah! Some nice wines in there that I haven’t yet tried but will certainly look out for in the future.
I’m working on the roundup as we speak – will wait till tonight to catch any stragglers (Lenn, oh creator of all that is WBW, this includes you!;-)), so it should be up tomorrow.
Thanks again for playing along,
Jeanne
