Things have gotten a little crazy in Augieland and there haven’t been many fantastic things to report on in the food world so I have been concentrating on other areas of life. However I recently received the email below from Lane at Red Wine Haiku asking for support which I think he deserves so I am posting it.
If you don’t know his awesome brand of wine appreciation the link to his site is and always has been over there on the left of this page, so click on it and judge for yourself. Otherwise when life straightens out, or someone finally does something so fantastic in food I can’t wait to report it, I am ducking my head back down. (Chefs, consider that a challenge. We need something inspirational.)
Happy New Year!
The biggest wine blog of all, Fermentation, is running a competition for the best wine blogs in six categories. The voting just started and I see that under 'Best Wine Review Blog' I already have some early support. If I win, perhaps I'll get invited to a few swanky tastings (my primary goal in this endeavor) and convince someone to put out the book. The Red Wine Haiku Review was the only blog mentioned in Wine & Spirit's year end review, and the elite on the message boards were sniffing that they would have been better served giving notice to a 'real' wine writer...
So they'll be gunning for me. I need your help. The link below takes you to the 'Best Wine Review Blog' page. In the box at the bottom of the page, you can nominate "The Red Wine Haiku Review" by simply typing the name of the blog in the 'comment' box and click send. You can mention another blog as well (below mine, of course!), and throw a praiseworthy comment to distinguish it from other posts. Thanks a lot!
