We’re dead chuffed – which, in our “distinctly British sensibility” (Snooth) means we’re surprised, delighted and rather proud – to be a finalist in the 2011 Wine Blog Awards.
Sediment is one of six finalists in the Best New Wine Blog category. To reach the shortlist with our somewhat idiosyncratic approach to wine writing is great; to win would be terrific.
The final decision will be made by a combination of public vote and judges’ verdicts – and so we’re nervously asking if you, our followers, could possibly, if you feel it’s appropriate, hem, hem…vote for us.
We’ve received plenty of comments during our first year, from “Droll, funny and very, very good” (thank you, Tai-Ran), and “work of genius, chaps” (Alex), to “What a ridiculous blog post, total lack of understanding of how the industry operates at the moment and clueless as to what was in that bottle you consumed.” (Anonymous).
Joe @suburbanwino was kind enough to comment “Ha! Love it. I'm quick to pick on folks who give tasting notes... unless they're clever, witty, or extraordinarily well-written (these fit that bill).”
We do hope that (apart from Anonymous, obviously) you all enjoy Sediment’s approach to wine – if so, perhaps you could visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CNTK5P8 and place a vote for us in Category 7? You can vote in as many or as few categories as you wish.
Many thanks for your support,
CJ & PK
