WBW #18 — wine shops that feel the love

Attention! One week from today is the international transnational multinational event known as Wine Blogging Wednesday! Bloggers of food, wine and otherwise from around the world post an entry around a common theme. As the host this month, I have chosen the theme of wine shops that feel the love. So visit a fun wine shop near you, write up the shop in a paragraph or two or three and drop me a line about your post next Wednesday. I’ll do a roundup after the event to provide a handy link back to all posts.

Bonus: while this month’s theme may appeal to wine fans who have never written a wine tasting note (or those who find them a bunch of mumbo jumbo) some die-hard WBW participants may feel incomplete without posting a TN. In that case, sample a good value wine based on the recommendation of the staff and write it up! Cheers,


PS this is the frist WBW where we can actually write about PEOPLE!

PPSS why does spell check on Blogger not recognize the words blog, blogger, or blogging?!?!

  1. i do like this idea.
    I hope i hve time to do it.
    I have doen the prep (been to the shop), now just have to do the writing bit. That may sound, easy but i have parties to go to, overtime to work and other committments. I’ll do my best whatever that may be.

  2. All right Sam–hope you can participate! (even the shop’s name, address and a few lines about why you liked it would be great.)
