Congratulations to 12 wine bloggers who won the WBC-or-Bust contest. The event was the brainchild of Marcus Pape of WineCHATr, who wanted to generate conversations about Washington wines leading up to June, when the 2010 Wine Blogger Conference is being held in Walla Walla.
Marcus first spoke of his idea months ago to me and Shona Milne of Woodinville Wine Update , and subsequently added several more Washington wine bloggers to be on his panel of judges for the WBC-or-Bust contest.
The contest participants were non-Washington wine bloggers, who wrote posts over the last several months about the Washington wine industry. Their prize? A road trip across Washington wine country – from Seattle to Walla Walla – in advance of the conference, with stops in Woodinville, Yakima Valley, and Red Mountain. Nice!
Congratulations – the 12 of you deserve it!
