Redwine2After a successful trip to South Africa, Wine Blogging Wednesday is back, scheduled for March 9…this time hosted by none other than Andrew at Spitoon. The theme? Obscure Red Grape Varieties.

What does that mean exactly? No Cabernet Sauvignon. No Merlot. No Pinot Noir.

What about Sangiovese or Tempranillo? Those are out too…we’re talking obscure here people. (For a complete list of banned substances, check out Andrew’s post.)

He does offer some suggestions on where to look and what to look for…so fear not!

Scour your wine shops for something unique…something weird…something you’ve wanted to try but never have!
