As is our Saturday routine, I'm in the kitchen drinking coffee and blogging, behind me Little Bill is watching his latest Movie (Alvin and the Chipmonks - Jason Lee must have some whopping gambling debts) and Herself is upstairs, catching up on her sleep. I wanted to write about something that has been exercising me of late, to whit, am I the only blogger in Ireland who reviews wines from the bargain/Supermarket/call it what you will section of the wine market here?
I'm not really sure what exactly I wanted to say beyond that, I don't know if the above is true and if so, does it bother and/or please me? Rather than bore you with some existential musings I thought I'd have a quick look around some of the non-commercial wine blogs and find some articles and bits of interest.
The image at the top of this post I took from this post on Sour Grapes, a comprehensive list of Irish wine blogs.
A humourous post on wines to be had in Leggs (we've all done it) from a blog I've only just discovered - My Grape Escape
A nice way to blow the wad in London , courtesy of Wine Perv.
A lot of Aussies reviewed on the Grapes of Sloth.
A guide to bluffing during Wine Tastings from The Grapefruit.
That's it for now - Ourselves and the Fabtastic Four are off to Olesya's Wine Bar tonight to sample some of their 400 wines (100 by the glass apparently), so I expect a hangover and some reviews tomorrow.
