Saturday night wine linkapalooza

Once upon a time, I might have been ashamed to blog on a Saturday night. Actually, that's not true. I'm embarrassed to blog on any night. But tonight I'm feeling kinda wordy and kinda nerdy and I've got a whole backlog of wine-related stories to highlight, so let's do this thing.

We're gonna need a bigger glass: The world's largest wine bottle is making its way to the states from Australia. The 1,300-pound bottle of Western Australia shiraz yields nearly 64 gallons of spicy red and stands six feet tall, the equivalent of 387 regular-size bottles. Full story.

Me wino, you wussy: A city councilman from Greeley in Northern Colorado argues against local wine stores being able to hold tastings by saying that womenfolk can't hold their liquor as well as men, therefore it's a danger to all living things to allow wine patrons to taste what they want before they buy it. You stay classy, Greeley.
Full story.

A curriculum we can all get behind: France's governing party wants its children to be schooled in the French wine industry, to keep the biz alive. Full story.

A holy union: Wisconsin woman combines yoga and wine-quaffing. Namasté, indeed. Full story.
