Virtual Wine Club

Not to be mistaken with whine, but I forewarn you--there may be bit of that this month. But in return for you putting up with the occasional whine, I am going to offer you a virtual glass of wine each day this month. Fair trade?

Ever signed up for a Beer of the Month, Cheese of the Month, Wine of the Month club, etc? Well, in honor of NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month), here's my sales pitch: you get a virtual glass of wine each DAY this month when you come by to visit--I'll pick a wine, tell you all the details, and we'll raise a toast at the end of each post. You may pick up some new favorites, hopefully you will share some of your favorites, and we'll all toast our super-special community. AND, at the end of the month, I'm going do a drawing for a bottle of real wine. You can comment on one post or all thirty--no biggie--just get your name in the hat at some point! Mouth watering yet? Mine is!

I have to say I had a great time doing this last year. I was proud of myself--I went through the entire alphabet , and had a great time re-reading all the posts recently--its a great reminder to try and make time to post even when you have a lot going on, because this is such a great way to journal life-happenings.

So to get things started, I am going to choose my first glass of wine to share with you all: it's from a vineyard not too far from me--and it's actually the wine we had for our wedding toast. Please enjoy a glass of Ison Sweet Blush:

Less fruity,
Light bodied blush wine

No calories, no after-wine-headache, just a good ole-fashioned glass of virtual wine! Good, huh?
I'm looking forward to this month, the writing, the wine, and having this great group of gals get me through the whine. 

Cheers to NaBloPoMo!

  1. What a great idea! Can't wait to read along with you.


  2. Nice! I signed up for NaBloPoMo AND NaNoWriMo, so... I'll be needing that wine. ;-)

  3. Drinking already. Thanks. So much better for a pregnant woman to have a virtual glass than a real one, but not as much fun. ;) I'll be drunk by December at this rate.

  4. Oh you definitely have my interest! I love wine and we have some really great ones in this area. That wine sounds delicious!

  5. That's the perfect kind of wine for me these days... virtual! I just went to that wine tasting at the farmer's market weekend before last, so I've got a ton of opinions on some local wines that I hadn't tasted before. What a fun theme!

  6. Oh how fun! Will enjoy reading, and hope to get some good ideas for new wines!

  7. I absolutely LOVE your chosen theme! Can't wait to read about a bunch of new wines this month.

  8. What a great idea! Excited to find some new yummy wines!

  9. awesome...I do love me some wine (esp when I used to be able to drink it)

    as usual you rock !!!

  10. Love the theme! I have my own favorite wine, but I'm pretty clueless to most. Looking forward to learning about new possibilities!

  11. Love the theme...I'm always game to try a new wine!

    Now, I just can't wait to actually be able to enjoy it ;)

    Looking forward to following along with you...

  12. i love me some wine. as I am currently drinking some of the box variety ;)

  13. Cheers!!! This is a really cool idea! thankyou for the glass. I am all signed up and working the Alphabet angle you did last year. :)

  14. I am soooo late on catching up on all these 30 in 30 posts. I really like the Virtual Wine Club idea and man this will be a lot of wine to sample in real life at some point.

  15. Of course I love everything you post, but I LOVE the virtual wine!! Great idea!!
