The Writer’s Block Wine Blog


I started blogging about wine almost 8 years ago!   Every Saturday, pretty well 52 weeks a year, I write a wine blog.   I’ve always been very adventurous when it comes to trying new wine, however week after week and year after year, sometimes I hit a wall.  A writer’s block wall.   This wine blog was initially named “Who Knows”,  (LOL) and then I realized most people won’t read a wine blog called Who Knows!   And although I’m kind of stumped as to the theme of this weeks wine blog, I do have some new wines to share with you!

portillo pinot

If you love Pinot Noir as much as I do, but feel there should be a hefty price tag attached to it, this wine is the answer to your prayers.   A light bodied, easy to drink Pinot thats big on flavour.   Nice flavours of cranberry and spice, this food friendly wine is priced under $13 a bottle.  Great wine at a great value.

And now for my wine of the week……

purple cowboy

I took a purple cowboy to a party last weekend.  I love the story behind this wi e, because the creator of this wine is a lady called Terry Wheatley.   And this lady knows a thing or two about Cowboys, both her husband and son are champion rodeo  cowboys.  Terry is also a breast cancer survivor, and started the ‘Tough enough to wear Pink’ campaign.  The wine is named after the band of purple cowboys, a legendary group of winemaking cowboys.   The wine is from Paso Robles California, and the Tenacious Red is a blend of Syrah, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.  In a word, Delicious!

kale wine

I’m hoping I’m a little more inspired next weekend.  Till next week, Cheers
