Round Up

Fri 22 Feb 2008

Not really a round up, but a collection of interesting bits and pieces.

Firstly, having now started my WSET Advanced Certificate in Wines and Spirits (taught by the Northern Wine Academy) I'm thinking (even) more about the wines I drink and on the look out for as much wine information as possible. One site I particularly like is Wine Rendez-Vous, by Paris based sommelier, Olivier. It's a good giggle and his approach is very light hearted but informative. The fact that the content is video based also makes it a bit different from a normal blog. If you want a social networking aspect to your web experience, check out the Open Wine Consortium.

Finally, wine-wise, many people will remember Stormhoek wines - famous for viral marketing (free wine for bloggers in the UK, Geek Dinners in the US). The disintegration of Orbital Wines has left the winery in a bit of a financial pickle but ... there is a way YOU can help out. If you have the spare cash you can buy a vine!

On the food front, because we're all into reducing our food wastage, you should be heading over to the Left Over Queen. And while you're there you can join the Foodie Blog Roll.

And finally, if you're in or near West Yorkshire tomorrow morning, you can head over to Mytholmroyd for the Calder Valley Organic Gardeners' Potato Day! While this won't help you with your entry to my Potato blog event, it will mean you should have a good crop of potatoes later in the year!
