My Guest Post for the Best Host: The Reverse Wine Snob Meets Convicted for Grape 08/12/11
If you follow me on Twitter (which you should absolutely be doing, if for no other reason than because my birthday is on Monday and I’m fewer than 50 follows away from an even 1,000), you may have already seen a piece of pretty strange news. That’s right: this witty wino was invited to write a guest post for another blog!
Even if you aren’t following me on Twitter (and for that matter, why aren’t you following me on Twitter?), you may recall some references to the Reverse Wine Snob, whose rating system I’ve always found to be pretty impressive. So when he asked if I could write about some lesser-known value grapes, I answered yes, I could write about some lesser-known value grapes.
I eventually settled on two, and French ones, no less: Muscadet (from the Melon de Bourgogne grape) and Beaujolais (from the Gamay grape). But to say anymore would be to spoil the fun of reading one of my reviews elsewhere, and I’d hate to deprive you of that.
First, though, I’d like to thank the Reverse Wine Snob (aka “Jon”) for a number of reasons, most notably for tolerating my appalling lack of adherence to even self-imposed deadlines. And of course, for inviting me to write a guest blog in the first place, which was just plain cool of him.
