Aw, Shucks. Vinography's First Award

I'm thrilled to pieces to find out that Vinography has won a Foodloggy or whatever they're going to call the award that results from the 2004 Food Blogging Awards, recently hosted by The Accidental Hedonist. From a field of 5 excellent contenders, Vinography was awarded honors as the "Best Food Blog - Wine, Beer and other Spirits."

Thank you to any and all of you who took the time to both nominate and vote for me in this process. I'd also like to extend a special thanks to Kate who runs The Accidental Hedonist and who took it upon herself this year to fill an obvious void in the end of year blog awards.

Vinography turns one year old in a week or so. It has been one heck of a year, and this is a lovely cap to 2004. Thanks for your support, and thanks for reading.

Alder, Well done!
Much deserved. I personally think your restaurant reviews are fantastic and incredibly well written too!
and who was it recently complaining they never win anything ....?!!

Pleased to see San Francisco is doing so well in the Awards so far.

We'll need to have another SF food bloggers get together to celebrate!
