Last month for Wine Blogging Wednesday #78, we got our “viggy on” –which means that, according to host Frank Morgan, over 29 bottles of viognier were opened, tasted, and reviewed on various blogs (including this one). Bloggers wrote about wines from California, Virginia, Australia, Washington, Portugal, and more.
July’s Wine Blogging Wednesday host Brix Chix Liza asks wine bloggers to ponder:
What wine would your favorite fictional character drink?
And she’s offering a prize for the best entry!
I’m going to ask my fellow Wine Predators to email me their stories and I’ll post them here. While the obvious literary guests should have been fellow wine blogger Deb Harkness
‘s heroine from Discovery of Witches
and her vampire/geneticist wino sweetheart, I invited Professor McGonigle over for Sunday dinner. You’ll have to wait until Wednesday to hear about what we ate and drank and talked about! (Oh, and there might be pictures as well!)
Wanna play? Here are the rules:
- Think of a favorite character. Any genre, any timeline, any story.
- What wine would he/she/it drink? Tell us about the wine. Work it into the story.
- Extra credit for those who write a scene with the wine
- Your deadline is Wednesday, July 25th
- Leave a comment at Brixchicks #wbw79

Alleigh from “A Glass After Work” hosted the May rendition of Wine Blogging Wednesday by asking us what we want to drink after a bad day at work.
As you can imagine, there was quite the range of answers. I looked at a few of the blog posts and I think I like Talk-A-Vino’s best–I was intrigued by his wine selections and agreed with his criteria. Alleigh’s wine choice, a 2008 zinfandel from Ottimino Rancho Bello Vineyard definitely sounded like a go to wine for me too! Here’s my submission for WBW #77.
June’s Wine Blogging Wednesday is almost upon us! The theme for WBW#78 taking place next Wednesday June 20 is “Viognier” aka “Get Your Viggy On” hosted by Frank aka “Drink What You Like” which is often wine from Virginia, his home state, and one that is big on “viggy” –Virginia’s “signature” grape. (Seriously!)
I’m down with Viognier, but not hip to “viggy.” Sorry–unless we’re talking about Viggo Mortensen and both Exene and John Doe are in the room and maybe we’re all tossing about lines of haiku or poetry or doing a exquisite corpse or something.
In the meantime, Continue reading
