Are you a Zinner? Wine Blogging Wednesday Celebrates 5th Anniversary with ZIN!

wbw-newSonadora announces Wine Blogging Wednesday #60: I Have Zinned

Host Sonadora points out that this month Wine Blogging Wednesday celebrates its Fifth Birthday! Amazing in that most wine blogs haven’t even been around that long. It’s truly a testimony to the vision of Lenn of Lenndevours –as well as to the legion of wine bloggers who keep it going every month.

The deadline to submit is this Wednesday, August 12th.  If you want to participate, leave a comment on her blog or email her at ctsonadora@gmail.com with a link to your blog post. And let me know too, with a comment here so I will be sure to go see your post.

As a big zin fan who cut her teeth on Ridge zins and who found more zins to love at last month’s Wine Bloggers conference, I’m not sure which zin I’ll write about–guess I better decide on something before the deadline! (Want to know more about Ridge? I’ve written several times about the winery on the blog or check out their blog, 4488, on my blogroll).

BTW, for local readers of this blog, as usual Wine Blogging Wednesday lands on the same night as Green Drinks Ventura County which celebrates its first anniversary Weds from 530-730pm at PURE Life & Home 576 E. Main Street Ventura. The goal of Green Drinks?  Good times shared among people working in, or interested in, environmental and sustainability issues.

Although this Green Drinks gathering is close enough to home that I could ride my bike, I think that’s the day we’re going back to the Ventura County Fair where my son won first place blue ribbons for all four of his artworks we entered!

Green Drinks approaches a different host each month who selects the venue of their choice.
