Grape Radio and Wine & Spirits Mag–Big Winner!
H U G E congratulations go out to Grape Radio and Wine & Spirits Magazine. Both were award winners at the 2008 James Beard Awards.
Grape Radio won BEST WEBCAST for their "Stewards of the Land" broadcast hosted by Jay Selman, Brian Clark and Eric Anderson. This comes on the heels of their being chosen best Wine Podcast/Video Blog at the American Wine Blog Awards. These guys have produced high quality, very serious work since launching Grape Radio…way back when? Seems like it’s been around for a very long time.
Wine & Spirits Magazine won (again!) for BEST WRITING ON SPIRITS, WINE & BEER with David Darlington’s "Post Modern Deliciousness: The World According to Clark Smith", from the April 2007 issue. Darlington, best known for his book, Angels’ Visit, has regularly published his work in W&S. The Magazine itself has published numerous James Bear Award Winners, testament surely to the outstanding editing at this magazine.
Tom, thanks for the kind words. I can only hope we can continue to produce content of worthy of such praise. I will take issue with your “Seems like it’s been around for a very long time.”. For some reason that strikes the wrong cord with me. 🙂

Hi Tom – I found the entire Wine & Spirits article on one of Clark Smith’s sites (winecrimes.com) for anyone interested:
He’s a post-fermentation vinous sorcerer!
