Wine In The Jet Stream


Wine Podcasting hits the mainstream or the jet stream I should say this February on American Airlines. I saw this news post from one of my feeds today and couldn’t believe it. Not that a wine podcast was put into the media selection of in flight entertainment but the fact that a PODCAST was put in the entertainment selection of American Airlines flights. I might just not know, but the last time I flew in business class (work paid for it, don’t worry I won’t pay that price on my own) there were no podcast’s available on my entertainment screen much less a WINE podcast. How cool is that, I mean how awesome is it how far wine Podcasting/blogging has come. Maybe I am exaggerating and not everyone thinks in flight entertainment is the mainstream, but I sure do.

I just realized that I had typed a whole paragraph and not mentioned the blog that has reached this strata of the blogosphere, GRAPE RADIO.

Cheers to GRAPE RADIO for this step in bringing wine information to the masses. Maybe next we will see Wine Library TV on Jetblue flights.

Wine Blogging Wednesday #42 Announced

Hello wine blogosphere, the next Wine Blogging Wednesday has been announced. This months WBW is brought to us by Andrew Barrow over at Spitoon. Now this will only be the 3rd WBW I have participated in but I think I have read about all 42, and this has to be the most unique one yet. Andrew asks us to pick an Italian red wine and describe it in just SEVEN words. Now those SEVEN words have to be in a sentence that makes sense and as grammatically correct as possible. Check out the rest of the details on his site here. I am excited but already trying to figure out how I will write a tasting note in only SEVEN words with our wine tonight.
