Yesterday, I put a post on sibling blog Grape Wall about a wine sold in China with tasting notes better associated with a B-grade porno. I tenuously linked this to the world’s greatest wine critic, Robert Parker, who once rated a wine made by Italian adult film star Savanna Samson.
As I pasted that post on this blog, The Village Grouch, sitting across from me in The Bookworm, said, “Duh, don’t put the whole thing on the bar blog. Use a teaser and link to the wine blog.”
Well, okay then. Here it is.
While I’m at it, let me plug a few other recent Grape Wall posts that are as equally tantalizing – if you are into China’s wine scene, that is. Like this one about our project to taste more than a hundred local wines and post the findings in Chinese, English, and French, these pieces with Leo Liu of Sureno and Olivier Six of La Baie des Anges, this interview with Alder Yarrow, arguably the world’s most important wine blogger, and this one about the challenges Chateau Lafite will face in setting up a winery in Shandong.
