Wine Friends

I'll be posting July's assignments shortly (I know, you are on the edge of your seats in thirsty anticipation) -- but, in the meantime.... I wanted to draw your attention to a comment we got on Aunt P's review of the barnyard wine... oh, sorry.... I mean, Bonarda.

Commenter Sean mentioned some wine recommendations along with a shameless plug for his buddy's site InterWined (very cool and clever name by the way).

I checked it out briefly this morning and it's a pretty neat site (I know, it's much fancier than this one, but...) -- "The Tasting Room" features some basic wine lessons as well as some tips on how to serve and store wine.

So, to Sean -- thanks for the tip

And, I've added a list of like-minded-blogs over on the right..... please feel free to refer us to others and I'll add them.

That is an impressive site.

Hi all,

Thanks for visiting InterWined.

Glad you liked it.

In appreciation, my friend and I have added a link tracking back to you at The Whinery.

And, may I recommend for the South African Tasting next month a bottle of Tukulu Pinotage. Quite nice...

on the extra credit assignment: "A more complex blend might be something like 56% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Syrah "

Let me guess? You've already picked up your bottle? Or did you pull this out your... sorry, I shouldn't be crass

I'll have you know..... I wasn't sure if "blended wine" was the correct term to use -- so I thought an example might help clarify what I was attempting to convey.

Rather than guess, I went to and found two that looked like good candidates and copied their descriptions for the example.
