As if the month couldn’t get any better…I just returned from a brilliant trip to Spain, visiting the town of Jerez for the annual Feria to drink buckets of sherry and gawk at the gorgeous flamenco gowns worn by local women. I spent a few days “studying” the art of and obsession over GinTonics in Madrid. I returned home to find I passed my Diploma exams with Merit in Fortified and Sparkling wines, and now this: nominations for Best New Wine Blog and Best Photography on a wine blog!
In the category of Best New Wine Blog, I am competing against myself because my column Unscrewed in the Village Voice is also a finalist. Vote what you feel is correct, but I encourage you to vote for Unscrewed (yes, painful to write that on my personal blog) and vote for Chasing the Vine under Best Original Photography. VOTING ENDS FRIDAY! And whatever happens, thank you all for the support this past year. Writing a blog(s) is time-consuming; just being acknowledged for the work is honor enough.
I leave you with a few gorgeous images from the Feria of
Jerez de la Frontera, Spain!
