Thanks for all who participated in Wine Blogging Wednesday #73 this month. We had a pretty small but empassioned turnout on my theme, "Spark". The intent was to bring our readers back to the time we decided we needed to blog about wine, and write about a wine that inspired you. Most of us are juggling the exponential rise in wine data running past our eyes and ears --pouring in from Twitter, Facebook and traditional media, while trying to find the time to blog. I hope this did spark people's writing fuse and get us all back writing!
Roddy at Sentir le Bouchon (Smell the Cork) wrote about a wild one!
Bob at 2001 Bottles took the opportunity to recount some of his favorite wine moments that keep him going, including an '82 Grange!
Tim at Winecast was taken in by Mike Grgitch's Zinfandel. Hooked.
Gwendolyn at Wine Predator got Sparked by one of our own, blogger and vintner, Jeff Stai at Twisted Oak.
Mike at Undertaking Wine was grabbed by an aromatic Gewürztraminer.
David at Cooking Chat was also sparked by Zinfandel. His choice for WBW was a wonder!
Colin at Grape Fan went back. Way back. To the rosé that started it all.
Chrissie at Awaken Your Senses found the one spot in Argentina that did it.
My Entry at the Corkdork (below) rekindled my love for Zinfandel.
Lisa at The Wine Muse hit the theme right on the head. She shows that wine passion can be sparked by a good affordable quaff. It may even keep the passion going on another front!
Let's all keep those Wednesdays free to blog once a month, shall we?
