More Wine Blogs

I'm definitely hooked on the blogs and the podcasts! Here are a few more that I've come across:

Vinography: a wine blog -
Wine and food adventures in San Francisco and around the world. Not bad, but much focus on European wines.

Spitton.biz - A fun blogger from the UK. He started "Wine Blogging Wednesdays," where he picks a date and a theme, and bloggers the world over post and link their reviews. The next is March 9th, and the theme is "
Obscure Red Grape Varieties."

FERMENTATIONS: The Daily Wine Blog - a wine PR guy who focuses on the biz side of things.

Oh, I almost forgot! You have to check out the cool business at CrushPad. They source the grapes, then you make about 30 decisions about the creation of the wine, from barrel wood to aging time to bottle and label design. Really cool! Prices start at about $4,000 per barrel, which yields about 25 cases. They can even facilitate the selling of your wine.

In other news, it's a beautiful day today in San Francisco. Blue skies and probably in the 70s! I can't wait for summer!

Glad you find spittoon fun! And hope you are going to join in with WBW #7... no excuses now ;-)

I would just like to correct one little point - I didnt actually instigate WBW. This was started by Lenn over at Lenndevours - http://lennthompson.typepad.com/lenndevours/ - a New York based wine-geek who mainly writes about Long Island wines. The host of each theme passes from blog to blog each month. It is Spittoons turn this time.
