Two Wine Blog Award Nominations! Voting Open

I’ve been quiet on the blog front over the last few weeks due to my WSET Diploma Unit 3 exam studies which morphed into a full-time job for about three weeks. The day after my exam (12 blind wines and 3-hours of theory) I departed for Austria where I currently sit and write this post.

I came to attend the fantastic Vie Vinum Wine Fair, a spectacular event of 500+ Austrian producers and their global fine wine counterparts. Today will be the fourth day of attending, and I’ve only conquered 8% of the wines and regions. One really needs two weeks to do this properly, but I digress.

While in Austria, I found out I had been nominated as a finalist for two wine blog awards this year. You may recall I won Best New Wine Blog last year. This year, I am up for Best Blog Post of the Year for my coverage of the struggles facing the Turkish wine industry and preserving Turkey’s indigenous grapes, and also Best Writing on a Blog. I’d love your support if you agree with the nominations.

You can vote here:
You’ll find my blog listed in the first category, Best Blog Post:
and the seventh category, Best Writing:

I’ll leave you with a postcard shot from the vineyards of Vienna, looking back at the city. Yes, Austria is the only city in the world with a city-owned winery and vineyards within the city limits (that make very good wine).
