American Wine Blog Awards Finalists Announced
First, it’s important that I thank everyone who took the time to nominate the various blogs. I have to thank the judges (more on them below) who looked over all the blogs nominated in each category and came back with their finalist. That was a lot of work.
On with it…
CLICK HERE TO VOTE IN THE 2007 AMERICAN WINE BLOG AWARDS
(you can also click on the graphics on the top left of this page)
You will only be able to vote once in each category. When you go to vote you’ll probably want to have two browser windows or tabs (if you use FireFox) open so you can use one window to evaluate the blogs while keeping the ballot in the other window.
The finalists in each category are:
It’s a very impressive collection! Congratulations finalists.
The folks who methodically went through all the nominated blogs and came up with these finalists were hand picked by me. I wanted folks that knew the wine industry and were familiar with world of web/wine 2.0. I also wanted folks who knew journalism and writing. Finally I wanted folks I knew and trusted and would be guaranteed to do the work that was necessary. I’m going to tell you more about these folks later. But for now they are:
Judd Wallenbrock, President of Humanitas Wines, GM of Michel-Schlumberger Winery
Michael De Loach, VP Sales and Marketing at Hook & Ladder Winery
Sarah Donnelly, Direct Sales and Wine Club at William Selyem
Eric Quanstrom, Director of Marketing at Appellation America
Cyril Penn, Editor of Wine Business Monthly
Greg Walter, Editor of The Pinot Noir Report
Jo Diaz, Owner Diaz-Communications
Thank you again to the judges and to all of your who offered nominations.
