I got back from spending most of the last week on the East Coast (working in Virginia, during which I was lucky enough to enjoy a great dinner at Restaurant Eve in Alexandria and host a terrific wine dinner at the Keswick Hall Hotel in Charlottesville) with the happy surprise in my mailbox that I've been nominated as an American Wine Blog Awards finalist in the category of "Best Winery Blog".
This is an enormous honor; there are more and more great wine blogs out there providing very different windows into the world of wine.
While a panel of judges culled all the nominations to determine the finalists, votes from the public determine the ultimate winners of the awards. If you'd like to vote on the wine blog awards, you can vote here. If you'd like to see the complete list of finalists (with links to all their blogs) you can read more here.
