This morning I learned that Texas Wine and Trail is a finalist in the 2014 Wine Blogger Awards for BEST Industry-Business Wine Blog! For such a young online publication, to make it as a top finalist among so many wonderful International wine blogs is an honor I could not have anticipated when launching this site a little over a year ago. The “About” page reflects the heart of Texas Wine and Trail:
“I set out to create an entertaining and fun publication that would embody the spirit and determination of the Texas wine industry – a multi-faceted Magazine that would offer directories, driving maps, event calendar, affordable online advertising, and most importantly, access to the most influential voices in the State. The publication is dedicated to showcasing the amazing diversity of Texas wine culture and growing success of the Texas wine industry. We offer insight to the challenges grape growers and winemakers in our state must overcome to produce Internationally award winning wines.”
Texas Wine and Trail’s team of writers contribute original content that covers a host of Texas wine subjects including consumer education, industry hurdles and accomplishments, travel, pairings, wine tourism, and Texas wine events. I sincerely appreciate the nomination and hope you follow THIS LINK to vote for Texas Wine and Trail as the 2014 BEST INDUSTRY-BUSINESS WINE BLOG!! #TXWine ‘yall!
About the American Wine Blogger Awards
The first American Wine Blog Awards were given in 2007. Created by Tom Wark and hosted on his blog Fermention, the awards quickly became the leading means of identifying excellence in wine blogging.
Wine blogs are nominated for awards by the general public and the top finalists for each awards category are selected by a panel of judges. Awards are given based on a combination of the judges’ opinions and a public vote.
The awards are presented live each year at the Wine Bloggers Conference and the year of the award represents the year they are given and received, not the preceding year. For more about the Judging process click here.
