We are grateful for the impressive amount of work and effort they will put into their responsibility as judges of the Wine Blog Awards. It’s not an easy task. They are charged with evaluating every blog nominated in a variety of categories and collectively coming up with finalists in each category from 100′s of nominations. In addition, they will cast their own votes among the finalists, as will the public, in determining the ultimate winners of this year’s Awards.
