In the annals of wine pairing, surely this is one question even I have not pondered. Thankfully, I know The Drunken Cyclist (TDC). Rather, thankfully, he knows me. Jeff over at TDC has one of my favorite wine blogs. He’s prolific, has a wry/dry sense of humor, is occasionally rant-y, and often thirsty.
Jeff does things like ride all over France with (full) boxes of Champagne strapped precariously to his bicycle. Think I’m exaggerating? Boom:
Anyhoo, as part of a wine blogging challenge with the theme “pairing”, Jeff eschewed food and picked…other blogs. Mine included.
So what wine pairs with this site? Guesses on my Facebook page were:
- Silky-smooth aged Barolo
- Gruner Veltliner (sorry, TDC, Grüner Veltliner)
- Something with bubbles
And none of these were correct. (Though I would have been happy if TDC picked any of the above.)

See? Now there you go again upping the ante! What can I do in response now? I know, I will start a new blog on which I will pair a different wine with everyone of your blogcasts!
You always meet–no, exceed–my lofty expectations. So I have to continually raise the bar for you. Well, also because you’re really tall.
