I just got word that my post about Aged Wines (see here) made me the Featured Wine Blog of the Day on the food website Foodista. Don’t believe me? It’s right here. I was really surprised when I got the email this morning and am super excited. I am seeing that I am joining the illustrious ranks of Stefano at Clicks and Corks, Jeff The Drunken Cyclist and The Armchair Sommelier (do I know your name?), all blogs I am very fond of.
Unfortunately, the link on Foodista’s website directs you to my decanting thoughts published as a Sunday Read earlier. I sent them an email and hope they’ll remedy that.
This really made my day. I liked that post a lot, and it makes me happy that the editors at this food and drinks community liked it too. Reason to pop a bottle today, I guess…as if I needed more reasons. Anyway, just had to share these news…
Thanks for helping me make this blog better by your comments and support!! Means a lot.
Well done! The equivalent of getting ‘published’
Thanks! I’ll try to collect royalties soon…:)
Awesome – what a great compliment to your writing. Congrats!!!
Thank you tons!!
Awesome! A huge congratulations.
Well deserved, what a beautiful post and lovely way to think about wine. Perhaps that is why I love tasting wines of my birth year so much, especially when my parents bought them when I was a baby. Congratulations!
Thanks! Yes, there is so much connected with old bottles, not just the year, but also how they were acquired, why they were acquired in the first place…Wines from my birth year have been sub par anyway in Germany, and what I have tried was not good at all…but we’re luckier with my wife’s birth year which still has very nice Rieslings to offer.
Congrats. Well deserved!
Yay, Oliver!!! Congratulations!!! So very well deserved: I am so happy for you! And no doubt it is a very good reason to pop a good one and celebrate! Well done, my friend, and thanks as always for the most kind mention :-)
Any accolades are much deserved! Congratulations!
Thank you so much!
Congratulations! That’s great and well-deserved news.
Thank you so much!
Neat-o Toledo! Congrats on the posting! You have much to be proud of and most definitely have yet one more reason to pop a bottle open tonight. Cheers!
Thanks so much! With my cousin in town, hell will we break open a bottle or two.
Congrats! I can’t even get my wife to read my blog….
Yeah, I hear you. I told Nina about this. And she was like: What post? Aah. Yeah…
Congrats! It was a great post and you really have a great site. Well Deserved!
Thank you so much, Jeff!!
