It’s with regret that we are announcing a change to the finalists in the Category of “Best New Wine Blog”. With this announcement comes a change in how voting for the winner in this category will go forward from here.
The finalists in each category are determined by calculating point totals that are associated with judges’ rankings within a category. When calculating the judges allocation of points to the list of public submissions in the “Best New Wine Blog Category”, there was an error. Unfortunately this mistake was not caught until this weekend, after voting had commenced.
ACTION BEING TAKEN:
- We are halting the voting for the “Best New Wine Blog” category
- We will add the correct blog to the finalist list and send out the “Finalist” logos to all Finalists
- We will ask the public for a re-vote ONLY in the “Best New Wine Blog Category”. Every other category is unaffected
- The judges will review the finalists from the now correct list of finalists as part of determining the winner
