There are so many wine blogs out there that I do not intend to make a list of all of them. However, as I travel the internet I sometimes find a site that is particularly interesting. I’ll list those sites here with a little description of what I found.
SOURMASHED – Reviews of Bourbon, Wine, Beer, Whiskey and more. Educational articles on the history of Bourbon and distillery profiles. Wine reviews are quite extensive and sorted by type including Port and Ice Wine
Vinography.com – One of the most comprehensive and interesting blogs out there. Wine reviews, restaurant reviews, book reviews and great editorials. There is also a calendar of events from around the country. There is also a list of most or maybe all of the wine blogs out there.
The Wit Is Out – An eclectic site from New England with wine reviews, food and wine pairings, even with hot dogs, foreign film reviews. Interesting personal articles make it well worth visiting.
Wandering Wino – A really well built site with nicely edited videos, winery lists and ratings, guest articles and more.

Wannabe Wino Wine Blog – Nice collection of wine reviews from the east coast (the blogger location, not necessarily the wines). Nice writing style. Covers a wide range of wines.
WINEpiphany – Another interesting site with a lot of good reviews.
Gonzo Gastronomy – Quirky writing with poetry, song lyrics and recipes mixed with editorials and wine writing.
zoomvino – A commercial site listing wineries around the world. What is interesting is seeing how many wineries there are in some countries. Like China, right now it shows 19 wineries (July 2011). For most wineries it also shows contact information and the location on a map. So if you need some contact info about a winery in another country you might start here.
