WBC12 Whites

In his keynote address at the 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference, Randall Grahm suggested a more philosophical approach to wine discussions. Writers could mention the magic the wine works on us. Randall asked if a wine could be powerful enough to move us to poetry. Poetry was an interesting choice of words. At last year’s Wine Bloggers Conference in Charlottesville, Virginia, I began writing haikus about the wines we tasted. At additional conference I followed the same pattern of dispensing with traditional notes and replace with haiku.
