Podcast #5 – Wine Blog Wednesday #22

Wine Blog Wednesday

This weeks Wine Blog Wednesday is hosted by Tim of [>] 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.
