American Wine Blog Awards

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the biggest thing going on in the wine blogging world at the moment. Tom Wark over at Fermentation has designed, orchestrated and is hosting the first ever American Wine Blog Awards. During the nomination period, anyone could nominate up to three wine blogs in each of seven categories with the caveat that the blog produced a certain number of posts in the year 2006 and was written in English (the American part was not an indication of where a blog had to be from). I nominated many of my favorites for the various categories during the nominations and there were a ton of great blogs that were mentioned.

Now, the finalists in each category have been announced, selected from a panel of very distinguished judges, ranging from editors of wine publications to winery executives. So it’s time for wine blog readers to pick the winners! You can vote for one blog in each category, one time. In order to get to the voting, click on the link in Tom’s post announcing the finalists.
