That's an interesting idea. Seems like fun. Count me in.

I'm "in" too.

I am absolutely on board! That sounds like a fabulous idea and a great time!

Hey Lenn,
Nice idea (he said while sipping his 2-buck-chuck). I'm a Philistine with respect to wine, but I'll jump in. Thanks (nice blog too).

Sounds like fun! I know absolutely nothing about wine and really only drink it on special occasions - but seems like this qualifies!

Why not Italian merlot... ? It's ssso good ;)

Sorry, I didn't read carefully the theme... A new world wine nation. Sorry :(

Lenn. Count me in. I've observed the IMBB events for a while and definitely think there's an equivalent for us in the wine world. Let's make sure to do a good roundup at the end so that its easy for people to quickly access all of the blogs that participated.

Happy to do New World (but not USA) Merlot.

You mention the inflexibility of wine as opposed to the themes from IMBB like "soup." One of the nice things these IMBB themes is inventiveness of the various chefs. Having everyone review a certain varietal or something from a specific geography will get us one particular type of variation, which can teach us all a little about the wines themselves and which ones are good.

However, for round #2 we could also consider picking a recipe, an easily available dish (e.g. pizza) or even a foodstuff (a particular cheese avialable anywhere, etc.) and have everyone pick a wine to pair with it, which would be a way of us learning from others about how to pair wine and food. This would give us the benefits of both reviews/tasting notes for the wines as well as bringing a little more flexibility and innovation that you see with IMBB.

Looking forward to it.

That is a great idea...let's keep beating the drum and getting the word out about the wine event...and if someone wants to host round 2...just let me know!

Lenn: I have always wanted to keep a wine journal -- hopefully your new inventive off-shoot of IMBB? will help me to do just that!

Yay!

I'm a wine idiot but I'd like to learn more about wine, so count me in too!

non-us merlot, i might ba able to come out of summer vacation for that one.. I'm in.
The Caveman

Fabulous idea. What bugs me about wine is that people get attached to one or two favourites and so everytime they run into the liquor store they grab their stalwarts. I would love if this, by being thematically inclined, gets people into new flavours and rocks the hell out of their palates. Ahem, I'm in.

I'm in with something local. Nice idea but if it's only one bottle, there'll be no friends involved

Count me in too! Sounds like a great idea.

My (anti-snob) wine site is VineSugar

We're definitely in - great idea.

Great idea, Lenn! How can I get involved in Round Two?

Well, rats. I just saw this - a day late. Cool idea. If you do something similar to this again, I hope I'll be paying attention early enough.

How can I get in on this...? Would LOVE to participate next time!

Taste is What Organic Wine is All About...

Wines Made From Organically Grown Grapes Taste Better!

Drink Organic Wine With No More Headaches?

The taste is great; No side effects is better! Many who experience migraine-like headaches after a few sips of conventional wines find that they can be headache-free by switching to wines produced from organic grapes. The low level of sulfites in organic wines is certainly one reason. Some studies also suggest that headaches are an allergic reaction to the pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers used by most commercial wine producers. More people are now turning to organic wines to alleviate their wine headache problems. See more about organic wine and the benefits with it - http://www.french-wine-online.com or the blog at http://organicwine.blogspot.com

Thanks so much for the great idea, I can't wait to get started!

Organic wine huh? well i migth be mistaken but such type of wine would be a cause of skin trauma or lead any other serious malfuntion.
