    Joe, I wondering if http://www.beendoonsolong.com/blog/ would be a stronger candidate for best writing? I may nominate him there.

    I am nominating Cheryl Durzy, VP of Clos LaChance for her blog, http://www.clos.com/blog/. While all blogs are about the wine industry, she covers a wide array of topics from distributor issues, shipping concerns, personnel issues and of course, customers. Her blogs are witty and well written and always make me laugh. As someone who is not in the industry, I am always learning something.

    This is tricky because, I think for content, Tablas Creek is amazing, but how bout best newcomer? Then it's Jordan Winery for sure.

  • lisamattson

    Thanks, Thea. We appreciate the compliment. It will be another year before we qualify for this category. Best New Wine Blog is our only possibility in 2010. I agree that what Jason does at Tablas Creek is amazing.

  • Annie Lau

    I would like to nominate Laura Gray's blog from http://www.ilpalazzone.com for this award. Not only does she provide news on the winery but information on Brunello wine culture itself and humorous but true stories and adventures on life around Montalcino.

    Quevedo: One of only a handfull of Portuguese wineries blogging, I think Oscar's youth and enthusiasm have a way of capturing anyone's attention, no matter your interest level in wines or your age.

    I also wish to cast my vote for the Scott Paul Blog above. Scott has a way of writing with real passion and enthusiasm. By using a combination of pictures and words he really makes you feel like you are there with him, savoring every bite of delicious food and every sip of fine wine. You can tell through Scott's writing on his Blog that he really means it and isn't using the blog in a one-dimensional, purely commercial interest. I also think that Scott's blog is very educational. His pictures of the vineyards and descriptions of his producers give us a personal and up close view of the vintners and terroirs which make up his eclectic, well selected portfolio. I have learned a lot about Burgundy and Oregon just by having the pleasure of reading this Blog. Overall, this is everything a good wine blog should be…interesting, informative, educational, personal and passionate. Go Scott Paul! SKG Bellevue, WA
