Some of you may be wondering why the Able Grape blog is suddenly peppered with french posts. My Québecois friend Rémy Charest, author of the excellent blogs À Chacun sa Bouteille (in French) and The Wine Case (in English), is also the force behind the tasting group Les Vendredis du Vin (a great French-language wine blogging community, a bit like Wine Blogging Wednesday, but, um, well, on Fridays instead because “Mercoledis du Vin” just sounds crappy), and asked if I’d like to lead this month’s dégustation. So I sat around, as Julian of Bubble Brothers nicely put it, slaving over a hot dictionary, putting together a couple of hopefully interesting and vaguely grammatically correct posts. It was a lot of fun, and a great chance to work on my French.
One of the things I most love about Able Grape is that it — like the world of wine itself — spans languages and cultures, and it’s been a great chance for me to connect with the wine community from all over the world. Coming soon will be Able Grape en Español, and improved versions of AG’s other languages… and as always, if you have comments, questions, or suggestions about how I can make Able Grape the best possible tool for you, please let me know.
PS: obligatory product plug: Able Grape knows about both VdV and WBW as concepts, so you should get great results for these queries, though our weekly update frequency may miss the very most recent posts.
