Nominate Your Favorite Wine Blog!

If you're a regular reader, or a regular blogger out there in blog ‘o2009 American Wine Blog Awards land, (also known as the blogosphere) you probably know about Tom Wark, the master blogger and mastermind behind Fermentation: The Daily Wine Blog. This widely respected blog just announced the American Wine Blog Awards, an annual contest that recognizes the best in wine blogging across a wide range of categories: wine reviews, winery blogs, etc. Although, I'm not much of a contest person, I am hoping (secretly) that will place in some fashion. But we bloggers need you!

You can nominate your favorite wine blogs in each of the categories:



Best Writing on a Wine Blog
Best Single Subject Wine Blog
Best Winery Blog
Best Wine Reviews on a Blog
Best Wine Blog Graphics and Presentation
Best Industry/Business-Oriented Wine Blog
Best Overall Wine Blog

All submissions must be received by February 8 and will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges. (I'm not sure who, after all this is the blogosphere!) Following the judge's selection of four finalists in each category, the public and the judges will vote on the best blog in each of the categories.

Regardless of your choice, please take a minute to nominate and later vote for your favorites. Consider it a small gesture of recognition to those of us who faithfully type away in the wee hours of the night to shed light on such a fascinating product and industry.

Thanks and may the best blog win!
