Wine Blogging Wednesday #76 Wrap Up: Barossa Boomerang


Barossa MapThe wines and writers came out from Down Under for Wine Blogging Wednesday 76, celebrating the Barossa Boomerang; a recovery of Australian wine sales in North America.  Ardent Australian juice fans, real time Barossa wine travelers, Aussie wine drinkers on multi-year hiatuses, curiosity seekers, and value chasers all weighed in.  Great insights into the region were shared, and specific wines under $30 have been recommended.

It was great fun instigating this up close and personal Barossa (re?)inspection. Hosting and theming #WBW76 had its rewards, especially since I also once turned my back on these wines like too many North Americans did between 2008 and 2010. I was refreshed, if not totally reconvinced, dipping my own my own toes and palate back into the water somewhere between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Great thanks to all that participated.  Here’s the wrap-up:

Thanks again to all the digital winos that helped bring Barossa back into the limelight.  And thanks to Lenn Thompson and Tim Elliot for keeping the lights on for Wine Blogging Wednesday every month!
