  • Wow.

  • Rsconti

    I nominate the wine blog Goodcheapvino.com for consideration. The blog covers the San Francisco Bay Area with recommendations of good wine buys under $20.

  • Mike B.

    I nominate Good Cheap Vino.  The Blog is informative and gives people currant information on value wines.  It looks at different retailers and also provides information from wineries through out the state.  The format is straight forward and easy to read.  People continue to ask me questions which are answered by Good Cheap Vino.   Wines for sale in limited quantities are posted weekly so readers can get a jump on super deals.  
         Each Blog has information about wines that are good values and wines that are best to avoid, with opinions as to why in both instances.  This is an important Blog because it meets the needs of Bay Area consumers.

  • Bthompson143

    I nominate Good Cheap Vino. I like the postings from the Vintage Wine Club. They seem to be ordinary people who find good wine at great prices usually under $20. They drink the wine and report the results with language that most can understand. This is a real service for the common person. No wine snobs at Good Cheap

  • Mary

    I nominate Good Cheap Vino for up to date information about wine.

  • John Kafarski

    I nominate The Wine Culture Project – http://www.winecultureproject.com.

  • Suzanne B

    I nominate http://www.vivaciousgourmand.com.  

    I did the same for best writing, but this is a new wine blog, so thought I should nominate in this category. I've never read wine reviews, like hers, descriptive. Sometimes she compares wines to clothing designers, or athletes, sports, and explains wines in a relatable way that makes sense to me, a new wine lover.

  • Evakripalani

    http://www.vivaciousgourmand.com.  Clever, funny and also incredibly insightful commentary about an impressive variety of wines.

  • VivaciousGourmand.com is thrilling with her witty & evocative descriptions. Such a great writer, and her vivaciousness is evident in her wine reviews.

  • Ranjit

    As others have noted, check out¬†http://www.vivaciousgourmand.com¬†– smart, funny and playful. ¬†I think she should be in the running for best wine blog but most definitely for best “new” wine blog.

  • Vivaciousgourmand

    Correction:  rjonwine.com  

  • Subtlet
  • WINEpiphany (http://www.winepiphany.com) by Anthony Burich.¬† Anthony's love for food and wine comes out in this blog.¬† He doesn't know all the answers and challenges his readers with interesting topics.¬† Anthony also seemed to do his homework before beginning his blog because he wrote articles in advance and then started publishing content on a regular basis.¬† I give him credit for this, because his posts are always fresh and there is regularly updated content.

  • Marcus

    I would nominate http://www.vivaciousgourmand.com ('cause it's great!)

  • Dary Khajavi

    I would like to nominate¬†http://www.montesquieuwinelove…¬†for Best New Wine Blog 2011. ¬†The writing is top notch and is always a good read. ¬†

    The info is from a completely different and well rounded perspective you don't see on other blogs.

    I would like to nominate http://www.youngtastebuds.com for Best New Wine Blog 2011. It is written by a husband & wife team comparatively new to the wine scene, having just moved to the Bay Area last summer. Their perspective is fresh, witty & entertaining, & quite informative about choosing the right wines for budget-conscious aficianados. They offer the reader a perspective which wines are good value (vs. overpriced), which food dishes they complement &, with their photographic essays, introduce the reader to many wineries throughout Northern California. This is most appreciated by this NJ reader who resides far away from Napa & Sonoma Counties.

  • Beltran347

    Winecountrygetaways.com  is so full of information about all regions of 
    California and Europe.  They cover everything from amateur and professional tastings to travel tips.  It is well written and is full of photos to encourage the reader to visit and taste the areas wines.  The European section has photos and info about wineries and personalities.  They have even tapped into Argentina and Chile !!  This is a must site for people who want a template of wine growing areas.  Bravo..

  • writtenword

    Winecountrygetaways.com is aol¬† era¬† and desperately needs to get an editor, but first get someone who can write the English language.¬† It's basically advertorial-style—–you pay in some way, or you know them or you a have a fake British accent, then you'll receive their 3rd rate write-up for free-ish!
