The 2012 Wine Blog Awards were presented during the Wine Bloggers Conference in Portland Oregon. Winners in nine categories were announced including Best Overall Wine Blog, which went to Jamie Goode’s Wine Blog, a blog site that is hands down one of the best wine blogs in existence.
Great to see The Gray Report get kudos. W. Blake Gray calls ‘em like he sees ‘em, and I enjoy his style of writing. His recent accolades of Robert Parker on Mr. Parker’s birthday showed class and highlighted what good Parker has brought to the wine world while others are all to eager to tear him down.
We have most of the winners linked up on our big-as-they-come Blogroll, but I noticed that Wine Julia, winner of the Best New Wine Blog is absent, so let’s get ‘er up there now. I hopped on over to the Wine Julia site this morning but some of the text was mangled. Let’s hope this is just a temporary bug. Nice layout overall and quality content.

I’m starting a new monthly look at great, fresh, wild and trailblazing wine blogs. Here’s our round-up for March.
SwirlSmellSlurp is an award-winning, impressively branded blog that I keep going back to. Make sure to keep track of ‘em on Twitter at @SwirlSmellSlurp.
The folks at Vin65 make some of the flashiest wine-related web sites I’ve come across, and they share some juicy web-biz morsels on their blog.
Want some of the best-written wine reviews around? Look no further than BiggerThanYourHead.
And to round-out our round-up, 1WineDude is a must-bookmark on any browser. Joe Roberts, who in his own words is “deeply, madly in love with wine” knows his stuff and his passion comes through on the page. And don’t take our word for it; his web site is full of accolades from everybody from Forbes.com to Gary Vaynerchuk. If you love wine, you’ll love Joe.

Brunellos Have More Fun has to be one of the best names I’ve ever heard for a blog, so we had to give a shoutout! A lovely play on words with one of the favorite words in our wine-slanted lexicon here at Wineshout.
In her blog, Whitney Adams, a Certified Sommelier, serves up fresh content and images on wine and life. Brunellos is also a 2001 Wine Blog Award finalist and a must for you reading list.
Do stop by Whitney’s blog to hang out and get in some reading about the wine life.
