Three Weeks ‘Til WBW 55

As host of last week's edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday, it seems only right that I should help spread the word about next month’s meeting of the wines. Rémy Charest will take the reins for WBW 55. He’s selected what looks to be a wide-open but also quite challenging topic: North vs. South.

It’s not meant to have politico-historical overtones. There’s nothing to do with Vietnam, Korea, the Civil War (or roller derby, for that matter). Rather, he’s asking everyone to try two wines made from the same grape or a similar blend, one from a more northerly spot or cooler climate than the other, and to compare and contrast their similarities and differences. It seems pretty straightforward at first glance, but the options are practically limitless and the chosen approaches have the potential to get quite in-depth.

Want to know more? Head on over to Rémy’s blog, The Wine Case, and check out the full details. Reports are due on Wednesday, March 18, 2009.
