Vote Dude (Maybe) In the 2010 Wine Blog Awards – But At Least Just Vote

Vinted on May 25, 2010 binned in about 1winedude blog, wine blogging

OK, so there’s this Wine Blog Awards thing going on right now. 

Maybe you’ve heard of it?

I’m honored that 1WineDude.com has been included as a finalist by the eleven secret judges  – supposedly secret so that we couldn’t bribe them I guess, but then that’s illogical since by definition we wine bloggers don’t make enough to bribe them!

Joking aside (which admittedly is very, very tough for me), I am humbled and honored to have this blog included as a finalist in the category of Best Overall Wine Blog, especially given the talent, passion and quality behind the other folks nominated / finalized in that category.  I work hard at the blog, and it’s nice to be noticed – it’s equally nice to see so many people I consider to be friends who are also finalists in the various categories – it’s like getting made in the mob or something (ok, not really).

Now, it’s up to YOU to determine who will win in each category.  Voting ends on May 30.

I’d be thrilled if you “Vote Dude” but mostly I’d like to ask you simply to vote, period.  This is your chance to help honor and encourage those wine blogs that you personally feel are making a difference in the world of wine.

Congrats and good luck to all of the finalists!

Vote at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7CLMSMG.

Cheers!

Aussie Wine: The Survey

Vinted on May 24, 2010 binned in wine buying

Got another survey comin’ at ya – this time, it’s not from a Masters of Wine student, but from a student in a Masters of Wine Business program in Adelaide Australia.

Said student is a guy named Jeffrey Williams, originally from NY but now doing some U.S.-based market research on the on-premise perceptions of Australian wines in the US market.  He’s put together a survey to gather data on the types and price points of Aussie wine that U.S. wine lovers purchase. 

According to Jeff, “The data will be used to support an ongoing business case of the wines currently being exported and distributed to the United States.”

Which to me means this is a chance for you to stop complaining about Yellowtail and maybe provide some data to help get better quality Aussie juice sold in more places over here.

Anyway, do a guy a favor and take the survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JDQDH3Z.

Cheers!

1WineDude TV Episode 11: Cahors (Malbec Days Festival 2010)

Vinted on May 23, 2010 binned in 1WineDude TV, on the road

A very brief intro. into the 2010 International Malbec Days Festival. 

As for the event – great intro. to Cahors and its wines; confusing marketing strategy / message; terrible, terrible, terrible organization of events and logistics overall.  More to come (on all three fronts)!

 

 

Cheers!
