Monthly Wine Writing Challenge: the Vote! (Almost)

Over the weekend, The Sweet Sommelier, the host of this month’s Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC8) let me know that she was having some trouble getting a survey to embed on her blog. She asked me if I could walk her through how to do it. Her blog is over on Blogspot, however, and I can barely figure out WordPress, so I knew there was no chance in Hades that I was going to be of any assistance.

Instead, I offered to hold the vote over here. Now some of you might be crying foul since I also entered the challenge, but I can assure you that I will not fudge the results. (After all there is no money involved–if there were, well–OK, I would still be honest about it. Now if there was a bottle of Salon Champagne awarded to the winner, let’s just say I would be sipping it right now…)

Below is a list of the entries I have so far. The only extra one from the weekend (other than mine) appears to be from Talk-a-Vino. Instead of hastily setting up the poll and then having to amend it, I have decided to allow for a day to make sure that I have everybody included. I will do my best to search around to see if I missed anyone, but if you are not on the list below and I do not hear from you by 10:00 Eastern (U.S.) time, you will not be on the ballot.

Let me know if that sounds too draconian. I hate sounding draconian.

Thus far, I count 15 17 18:

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  1. I don’t think I’m on the list. I tagged it as #MWWC8 but changed it to #MMWC8 because i got confused on the acronym (recalled an old theme). I’ll correct the hashtag later today.
