I'm thrilled to report that Vinography has won this year's Best Drinks Blog Award at the 2006 Food Blogging Awards. This is the third year in a row that Vinography has won this award. With a track record like that, I'm sure for some people anything I say here will sound perhaps like hollow thanks, but I honestly I'm just as blown away as I was the first time. It gives me such great pleasure to know that the hard work and time I put into this site is appreciated by those who read it and the larger blogging community. Its the support and encouragement of you folks that has made it possible for me to keep on doing this writing for the past three years.
And for those of you who were kind enough to nominate me for the award and then to vote for me in the final round I owe a special thanks.
To all my readers, this site is made better every day with your comments, your criticisms, and your participation in this growing community of wine lovers that occasionally stop in and hang out at Vinography.
Thank you and happy drinking.
