Here at Grape Collective, we truly consider ourselves a community. In fact, we truly consider wine in general to be a community. But we've been fortunate enough to surround ourselves with the best people out there, from editors and columnists to story subjects and more — and would be downright lying if we didn't admit we were celebrating the 2014 Wine Blog Awards finalists!
First and foremost, we're proud to call our site home to editor Jameson Fink. Wine Without Worry is up for Best Wine Writing. Joining him from the GC family is columnist David White and his Terroirst, nominated for Best Industry/Business Wine Blog. And Katy Bell, who penned "From Pot to Pinot" for us, is a finalist for Best Blog Post of the Year for her "This Winemaker Hunts Trees To Help Make The Perfect Wine" in Forbes. Additionally, Randall Grahm, with his Best Winery Blog nod for Been Doon So Long, has found himself on Grape Collective a number of times! Dorothy Gaiter has interviewed him, as has Alan Goldfarb for his "Trying to Grow Up Vin de Terroir," and don't forget his appearance on our Twitter 25: The Best In Wine.
And of the many talented wine lovers nominated, several have given us the pleasure of participating in Jameson's fun and ever-personal SpeakEasy:
Anyway, a big congratulations (and the best of luck) to everyone involved.To see the entire list of finalists, check out the post on WineBlogAwards.com. Be sure to put you votes in by June 19!
