Classy Fiesta, Australian-Style

Standard

Feasts are a big part of different cultures. There are those that celebrate it by not leaving their houses and staying indoors thankful for a bountiful harvest. There are those where the streets are closed off to traffic for the benefit of using the roads as extra space for housing visitors or for setting up stages for various programs.

The point is, everybody loves festivals! There’s lots of food. Every festival has a positive vibe to it because it’s in celebration of something. Drinks come aplenty, from beer to high-end wine. Roars of laughter will erupt from different tables every now and then.

Each culture has its own way of doing feasts, however. If you want a good old Australian-style food and wine festival, then there are lots that go by each year. There’s always one that seems to stand out, however, and it is Tasting Australia.

The event will be in Adelaide from April 27th to May 4th. It offers a lot to satisfy everyone’s palettes. There’s good food, and there’s wine. If, like me, you’re a fan of both, this event isn’t to be missed; especially if you’re already in Adelaide. If you decide to go, make sure you are in appropriate attire.

I may be blogging about wine and may seem to be an expert on the subject I write about, but before I was a blogger, I was a fan and a reader first. I still am a reader and will always be, and in this post, I’m going to share with you some of the top wine blogs I frequented before I started FOODZILLA Blog last month. Website design, homepage photos, and overall look and feel – all these are important factors, but what made these blogs stand out for me is the personal touch the authors have on every page. Elizabeth Smith of travelingwinechick.com, for instance, shares on her blog her own travel experiences, wine and winery recommendations, and even reviews on random books she recommends. Jaime Goode of wineanorack.com, on the other hand, shares his wine expertise through articles that showcase his talent as a prolific journalist and writer.

Without further ado, I present to you my top 5 wine blogs:

  1. Travelling Wine Chick (Travelingwinechick.com)
  2. Jaime goode’s wine blog (Wineanorak.com)
  3. 1 Wine Dude (1winedude.com)
  4. Natalie MacLean (Nataliemaclean.com)
  5. Wine Travel Media (Winetravelmedia.com)

Whether I was after information on cheap or expensive wines, updates on the latest wine events, or just about anything that has to do with wine, these are the top 5 blogs I went to and still go to from time to time. This short list is not permanent, and I might eventually add to it and make it longer (or even remove and replace some items) depending on what I believe would be a list that would stay relevant and beneficial both to me and you, my readers. Enjoy!
