One of the nights I enjoyed most during the 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference was the Night of Many Bottles. For this special one night event, each wine blogger was asked to bring their favorite bottle of wine to share with the other attendees of the conference.
With almost 400 attendees, an entire banquet rooms’ walls were lined with tables that were filled with open bottles of wine from around the world – truly, a wine bloggers dream come true.
Wines from Greece, France, Italy and the United States, to name a few, were poured and tasted by hundreds of wine bloggers. Some of the many varietals available for tasting were: Champagne, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. I didn’t even come close to trying as many as I wanted to; however, from what I did try, I decided to write about each of my favorites from my preferred wine region from around the world-the Pacific Northwest.
With the exception of two California Cabernet Sauvignons, I tried a Washington Semillon from L’Ecole No. 41, two Pinot Noirs and one Chardonnay from the great Willamette Valley. I’ve reviewed and described each of these wines in detail on my award-winning wine blog: WineJulia.com – the Best New Wine Blog of 2012.
