Nominated for the 2009 American Wine Blog Awards

2009 American Wine Blog FinalistI was very surprised to learn this morning that my blog was picked as one of the four finalists in the American Wine Blog Awards' "Best Wine Reviews on a Blog" category. Many thanks to McDuff for nominating me in the first place and I'm honored that the judges plucked this blog from the obscure depths and placed it alongside much the better-known nominees in this category: Bigger Than Your Head, Good Wine Under $20, and Vinography.

So now the final voting begins. Cast your vote by March 4 for your favorite!

By the way, if you're visiting for the first time and wondering where to get started (if not at the top), here are some recent hits:

WP, thanks for the mention and the link to Bigger. It's an awesome line-up of blogs in the wine reviewing category. And I'm jealous of your visit to Renaissance; it's one of my favorite producers in California: real talent, intuition and integrity and no new oak!

Thanks for writing, Fredric. Agree about Renaissance, and it's funny that at least 3 of the 4 blogs in our category hold them in esteem (no idea how Dr. Debs feels).
