Nothing like a man on a mission!

Lenn of LennDevours Wine Blog has announced his mission of tasting and reviewing 50 wines, one from each of the 50 states, in 50 weeks.

It makes sense that Lenn would be the man to do this. His championing of NY wines, and his ability to stay on message at his blog makes him the rare wine blogger to focus on wines outside the major wine producing states of CA, WA and OR.

However, he does have a challenge. My guess is he’ll have to have at least 40 or 45 of the wines shipped to him or he’s going to have to go on a serious road trip.

What I’m looking most forward to his the review of wine from Alaska. I’ve never seen one or tasted one (how fascinating would it be to visit those vineyards and wineries). I’ve always wanted to try Sparkling Rhubarb wine.

    What? Puerto Rico is excluded? And what about Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands?! I think Lenn needs to take trips there to explore their vineyards.

    The wines of Hawaii might be interesting as well…. Volcano Winery sounds like a winner!

    Re: Hawaii, the one to try may be “Hula O Maui”, a sparking pineapple wine made by Tedeschi Vineyards.

    Sorry to be a literalist a-hole, but by definition wine is fermented grapes. Rhubarb wine and pineapple wine aren’t wine. But no worries; he can go here: http://www.denaliwinery.com/
