Celebrating Regional Wine Week from the East Side of the Pond
Today marks the beginning of the fourth annual Regional Wine Week hosted by Drink Local Wine – a group founded by Washington Post wine guy, Dave McIntyre, and wine writer Jeff Siegel as a way of brining more attention to the wine of the ‘other‘ states outside California, Washington, and Oregon.
The folks at Drink Local Wine recently issued a call to local wine supporters to share their thoughts about ‘the other 47’ (states other than California, Washington, and Oregon) in 47 words.
There are a number of very creative folks in the local wine blogosphere so I look forward to reading all of the 47-word entries. On day 1, there are already several excellent 47 word entries so far:
- GEG at Swirl, Sip, Snark
- Rick and Nancy at Virginia Wine In My Pocket
- DLW co-founders Jeff Siegel (here) and Dave McIntyre (here) also get in on the 47 word action
- Lorie from Wining Ways
My attempt at an ode to support my Virginia Wine habit below:
Regional Wine Week is finally here,
In Brussels, so instead I sip on a beer,
No Virginia wine to be had,
So far from home, which is sad,
Alas, another flight to catch,
A paycheck to fetch,
A serious passion to support,
All local wine but… Snort
Ok, this exhausts the limits of my creativity. I’ll leave the artistic prose to the other. Cheers all!
