Jordan Wins Wine Blog Award for Best Photo and Video

Last Saturday night, more than 350 wine bloggers from across North America gathered in a hotel ballroom in Santa Barbara County wine country for the eighth annual Wine Blog Awards. The lights were down and spirits were high as Alan Kropf, publisher of Mutineer magazine, announced the winners in nine categories.

For a second year in a row, Jordan Winery earned the award for best photo and video on a wine blog. I was honored to except this award on behalf of everyone at Jordan who contributes to our blog and the fans who follow our food, wine and hospitality journeys chronicled here. We were up against some very talented videographers and photographers, including Brunellos Have More Fun, WineOhTV and Lynmar Life. I was honestly quite surprised to win, considering that we’ve been a little quiet on the blog this year, focusing more on unreleased video projects and a massive redesign of both our website and blog. Stay tuned when we reveal the major makeovers in September.

Hosted during the annual Wine Bloggers Conference, the Wine Blog Awards honors the best wine blogs in North America. Votes are based on a combination of points awarded by professional judges, as well as votes by the public. The conference includes three days of wine education immersion with lots of wine tasting (of course), including the infamous speed tastings pictured above.

Thank you for following us and thanks to everyone who voted.

Congratulations to the Jordan team and espercially Lisa on video. I still love to watch the Gangnam Style video, what a hoot. I’ll see you in May on my annual visit to Napa. I wish I lived in Napa, I’d be able to visit more often. And to Maribel, please make sure you have plenty of 2003 Cab available, you know it’s my favorite. It is a pleasure to be able to drink one of the best wines in Napa, and one that is very affordably priced.
PS — if you need a stand-in on your next video, I am available on a two week notice :-).

Thanks so much! Please do ask for me when you’re here in May. Maybe we will be shooting a video and you can make an appearance. 🙂
I’ll share your comment with Maribel too. 2003 is still tasting great!
