And The Winner Is....

A hearty congratulations to Helen Rennie who is the winner of Vinography's customized Napa or Sonoma wine tour itinerary. Helen's name was picked from among the many people who donated money for this year's A Menu For Hope fundraiser to help the victims of the Kashmir earthquake. I will work with Helen to understand her taste in wine and her style of travel, and then I will provide her with a suggested itinerary for the length of her stay in California wine country.

Wherever you are, Helen, congratulations. Drop me an e-mail and we can talk about your trip.

I'd like to also extend a big thanks to all of you readers who chose to donate to this very worthy cause. We raised a jaw-dropping $17,101.32, demonstrating not only your generosity but the collective power of food and wine bloggers around the world.

Don't forget to check the list of prize recipients-- you may have won something !!
