Juice Round-up – Wine Reviews

Here are the reviews from last week.

Collectively, the wine blogs of the world represent a little less “high and mighty” and more of an approachable view of wines they’ve tasted. In fact, they often rebuke “the establishment” of wine. More approachable wine discussions are good for everyone. Wine Blogs of the world make good reading and more often then not they find some smaller winery wines that may get overlooked elsewhere.

Enjoy the Wine Life!

This was a pretty slow week for the wine tastings.  A few bloggers are on the road while others had visited some interesting events.  Here’s what we have in the wine blogosphere.  I would say that VineSugar tasted the most over the last two weeks if it wasn’t for the fact that Vinography’s Alder hit Rhone Rangers and Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri where he tasted about 130 wines each!
