2011 Wine Blog Awards Voting is Now Open

by Allan on June 21, 2011

Public voting for the 2011 Wine Blog Awards is now open. Our panel of judges spent three weeks reviewing dozens of blogs for each of the eight award categories and has narrowed down the list to five finalists per category. (In two cases, we had a tie for fifth and so included six finalists.)

The public voting period will run for one week from June 21 – 27. The final winners of each category will be determined via a 50/50 weighting of the public vote and that of the judges and will be announced on July 23, 2011 at the North American Wine Bloggers Conference. If you participate in the public voting, please take your responsibility seriously. We suggest you review each finalist’s blog and vote based on each category’s defined criteria. To vote, please visit:

For those of you who are finalists, we will create and send you a finalist badge shortly. Here is the list of finalists:
