This weeks Wine Blog Wednesday is hosted by Tim of [Winecast.net->http://www.winecast.net] and his choice of themes was wines under 12.5% alcohol. I decided that since Tim was part of my inspiration to get into podcasting that I would record a short wrap up of my tasting instead of just writing about it. Enjoy the Podcast and check out the links below.
Footnote: I mentioned that the theme was low-alcohol wines, I was wrong. The theme is l ow alcohol reds, only!
