I'm not very good at asking for help. Nor am I one to beg, plead, cajole, or beseech. I am however, humbly asking for your help to get Wilma out there in nomination land. I'm not the most techie of blogger types, nor am I as active in the blogosphere as some of my fellow wine bloggers. What I am however, is totally committed and passionate about sharing the ups, downs, successes, failures, trials, and tribulations of a lifetime spent in a family wine business. Sometimes I find myself brimming with story ideas and can hardly wait to share them with you. Then I remember, oh yea, that might piss off The Husband, The Father, The Staff, The Distributors, The Customers, The Bank, The Kids, and the myriad of other people/entities I interact with on a daily basis. Other times, Wilma is simply too busy, tired, or overwhelmed to find time to write. In the end, it's my desire to entertain, educate, shed light and inform that keeps me going. (That, and my extreme sense of guilt!)  

Thanking you in advance, I remain your dedicated wine blogger…Wilma.

Thanks Matt, we are really looking forward to having you and the V2 gang here!
P.S. Hmmmm...would you consider writing a guest blog for me? It could be called "Pearls of Wisdom From My Life As A Dry Creeker!"

I voted for you a few days ago. Good luck! You deserve to win! You have the best blog in wine business! I'm also planning another wine country cycling trip to Dry Creek Valley Wednesday June 15. I'll come by DCV to say hi & see your new tasting room. I hope you'll be there!

Heh Chuck.
Thank you for nominating me! I really appreciate it and am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I will make the cut. Unfortunately I'll be out of town the week you'll be visiting, however be sure to stop in and introduce yourself, ok? I want you to see the newly remodeled tasting room. Ask for Bill, John, or Maggie.
