I Need Your Help–Millésima Blog Awards

Early yesterday morning, I learned that I am a finalist for a Millésima Wine Blog Award for my story about my trip to Brooks Winery and its founder Jimi Brooks and current CEO Janie Brooks Heuck, Jimi’s sister and current President of the winery.

While it is actually an honor just to be a finalist, there is now an internet vote to choose the winner. So despite how I feel about internet votes (it has nothing to do with the merits of the relevant articles but rather one’s vigilance in beating the drum), I am asking you for your vote. Should I win, I would get a trip to Bordeaux to taste some fancy wines.

Apparently, you need to be on Facebook in order to vote (another issue I have with the contest, but…), but the voting process is fairly innocuous. Just click on the photo below to go to vote, if you feel so inclined.

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. It is all worth it because tasting Bordeaux en primeur is such an awesome learning experience (and possibly the worst thing ever for teeth). It was such an amazing week and the Millesima crew are awesome! I voted yesterday. Best wishes.
