Wine Blogging Wednesday #47 Announced--This Wine Brought to You By the Letter "S"

Erin and Michelle at the Canadian wine blog Grape Juice have come up with a perfect theme for the height of summer. With a nod and a wink back to childhood's Sesame Street, they want you to drink a wine "Brought to you by the letter 'S'."

I never could resist Grover when he got bossy.

If you think this theme is baggy and bit vague, that was intentional. As they explained at Good Grape, "We want to see what you come up with when you’re given near limitless options. The word beginning with “S” must be directly related to your bottle of wine (think region, appellation, producer, varietal, style, winemaker, etc) but that’s the only rule."

So if you are feeling a bit frazzled, just go to the store and pick up some Syrah, a wine from South America, or a yummy bottle of something from a maker like Sineann. Feeling revved up by the summer? Go for a trifecta, with the name, variety, and region all coming in under the "S" guidelines. Just grab some grape juice and a PB&J and have some classic summertime fun.

Erin and Michelle would like your entries on July 9, 2008, and full instructions on how to post/email/and otherwise submit your entries are explained in their announcement post. If you haven't checked out the roundup from WBW #46 on Rhone whites, it's right here at GWU$20, and you can get their via the express lane by clicking here.
