Who says wine blogging is dead? A tasting note by one of our fav wine bloggers

buddha in your glass wine blogNo one really knows when “wine blogging” actually became a thing. But we can remember back to the summer of 2007 when there were already a handful of high-profile wine bloggers who were actively posting (Alice Feiring, Alfonso Cevola, Eric Asimov, Alder Yarrow…).

In the years that followed, literally hundreds of wine bloggers began to populate the internets with tasting notes and impressions of the wines they tasted and wineries they visited.

It was back in the summer of 2012 that a pretty serious wine blogger claimed that “wine blogging is dead… sort of.”

Whatever, dude!

While the rich and famous wine bloggers like him have continued to navelgaze, the rest of us have carried on: Not for the sake of glory or notoriety, but for the sake of documenting the wines that we have cared about.

We were thrilled to learn that Buddha in Your Glass, one of our favorite wine bloggers, cared enough about our Salice Salentino that she decided to blog about it.

Here’s what she had to say:

Dark garnet in colour with delightfully earthy aromas of wild berry preserves, garrique and hints of wildflowers. Tastes rather similar to the aromas, with berry and floral notes providing a delicate edge to the rustic, earthy backbone. Black pepper and leather elements linger on the velvety finish.

That’s not all she had to say. Click here for the complete post.

And thank you, Buddha in Your Glass! Blog on, sistah!

  1. Thank you, so very much appreciated! This is just brilliant: “While the rich and famous wine bloggers like him have continued to navelgaze, the rest of us have carried on: Not for the sake of glory or notoriety, but for the sake of documenting the wines that we have cared about.”
