Wine Blogging Wednesday #67: which red wine would convince a white wine drinker?

March 17, 2010

1WineDude.com is hosting March’s installment of Wine Blogging Wednesday #67 next Wednesday, March 24th with a theme of Seeing Red For the First Time and you oughtta go to his blog just to see the image he chose for his announcement. (Or just go to his blog to see what irreverence he’s up to!)

Joe’s prompt is to “pick a red wine that you would use to introduce a white wine drinker to red wines for the first time.  Think of a person that only ever drinks white wine, and answer the question: What Red Wine would I use to convince that white-wine-only person that they should also drink reds?

“You can go as crazy as you like in your choices,” writes Joe.  “ANY still red wine is eligible.”

To participate, post a comment to 1WineDude.com on or before March 24th and include the link to your review.

Joe’s announcement of this prompt riled up at least one of his readers, Kevin, who commented (and I quote directly):

Dude, Pouring more red down the throats of white wine drinkers is like throwing a match on a forest fire, what’s the point and who will notice? I get sooo many knee jerk “I don’t drink white wine” whinges at tastings there is a greater good to be served. Expand consumers exposure to quality whites and the whole wine experience will be better for it. Tougher row to hoe but sooo much more satisfying. Saying that, very cool picture though.

Yeah, well, what did I say? Go see the picture, think about THE red that would turn on white wine drinkers, write something up, and let Joe know. See you next Wednesday!

I have no idea yet what I’m going to write about! But I did go tasting last Sunday up in Santa Barbara County so maybe I’ll see something there in my notes and I AM planning to help with the bottling at Old Creek Ranch Winery this Sunday so maybe I’ll be inspired there…Or maybe this weekend I’ll spend a little time in the cellar and be inspired? Or rummage through the bottles and notes I’ve been saving to write about?

PS Happy St Patrick’s Day! I may have wine with my corned beef but what I’m really looking forward to is a black and tan and something Irish that starts with a “w”!
