After combing through more than 500 submissions, a panel of expert judges and social media-minded oenophiles alike voted for their favorite English-language wine blogs on the Internet.
At the 2012 Wine Blog Awards in Portland, Oregon over the weekend, nine wine writers had reason to pop a cork and celebrate, including London-based British blogger Jamie Goode, whose postings on wineanorak.com snagged the coveted Best Overall Wine Blog award.
Blogs were judged by a panel of 16 wine experts, and public voting.
