Vinography Wins Some Awards

Arguably less interesting than the fact that Bernie Madoff's wine collection sold for $20,000 more than what anyone thought it might go for at auction (all proceeds going to victims, thankfully), it's worth mentioning that Vinography won some awards last week.

I woke up on Tuesday morning to discover that Vinography had won Best Wine or Beer Blog in the 2011 Saveur Blog Awards. These awards were a combination of juried and popular votes. For those of you who voted for me, thank you so much for your support! You should go check out the winners, especially the young lady that won for best food photography.

Then in an embarrassment of riches, Vinography won third place for Best Investigative Wine story at the Born Digital Wine Awards, a new set of awards that is trying to be the Pulitzer Prize of online wine writing and media. These awards were judged by a group of heavy hitters in the wine writing world.

Anyway, back to your regular programming, with a warning: don't buy wine from the ice cream truck. And don't give him wine either.
