June 2011

Just a few minutes ago I purchased my airline ticket to the Wine Bloggers Conference N.A. (Dallas to Charlottesville) RT.  I did not want to wait too long because I am just so excited about going, plus I feel I got a good price.  I have to thank all the donors to the scholarship fund, as well as the fund committee, in making this happen for me.  I am looking forward to receiving the list of the 300 or so wine bloggers who will be at the conference, as I want to meet and greet each and every one of you!  If I’m not able to find you, come find me!  I am new at this, so would love to learn from all of you!


I am over the moon!  I received notice that I won a scholarship to attend the Wine Bloggers Conference North America.  This conference is being held in Charlottesville, VA from July 21-24, 2011.  Wine bloggers continue to gain recognition from the public as well as famous wine authors and public figures.  In fact, Jancis Robinson is the keynote speaker at the conference this year.  The amount of information and resources that I will learn at the conference will be astronomical in terms of what I want to do with my life.  The number of influential people in the wine blogger society and wine industry communicators will be enormous.  I will be attending fabulous wine tastings and even a wine tasting and dinner at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home.
