Congratulations to the winners of the 2011 Wine Blog Awards, which were announced this afternoon at the annual Wine Bloggers Conference, which is taking place in Charlottsville, Virginia.
The winners were selected through a combination of a public vote and a vote by the judges.
I'm particularly pleased to see Tom Wark's blog, Fermentation, honored this year as both the Best Industry blog and the Best Overall Wine Blog. Tom invented the Wine Blog Awards and has been both a tireless promoter of wine blogs and wine bloggers as well as a relentlessly fine blogger himself. The Wine Blog Awards have been owned and managed by a different organization now for two years, and Tom finally allowed himself to be nominated, to quite a deserving result.
Vinography was honored for the third time as Best Writing on a wine blog in the awards. Thanks to all my readers for your support, and more importantly, your willingness to come back here every week and read my stuff.

Best Wine Blog Graphics, Photography, & Presentation Winner: Vino Freakism
