Maker's Table Nominated for Best Writing, Best Post in 2015 Wine Blog Awards

I’m pleased to announce that Maker’s Table has been shortlisted in the categories of Best Writing and Best Blog Post of the Year in the 2015 Wine Blog Awards.

Now in their ninth year, the awards highlight the best self-published writing about wine online. My writing previously earned finalist status for Best Writing in 2013, and for Blog Post of the Year in 2012. It’s a privilege to find myself in such good company anytime. 

For 2015, the judges selected my article, Wines of the Week: Fruit, Flower, Structure, Texture, Mystery, as among the year’s top features, all of which must display a unique point of view and demonstrate original and insightful contributions to wine discourse.

Evidently the rest of the material here also caught their collective eye, as the entire Maker’s Table site was tapped for consistently delivering wine writing that excels in voice, style, insight, and entertainment.

To me, the main message is this: I love writing about wine, because I love wine growing, wine making, and this beautiful substance that is the jewel of the meal. But I mostly love writing about wine because I love writing about experience, and trying to put the completely ineffable into words. It’s a tremendous honor to know that some people find meaning and value in what I have to say.

If you like what you’ve been reading here and would like to support my nomination, please consider voting for me in both categories. Every vote counts, and will be weighed equally alongside the judges’ assessments.

Thank you, as always, for reading—and for your support.

  • Congratulations Meg. Your words resonate like music in my mind – full of poetry and grace. You deserve the award.
    I also spent a morning climbing Jackass Hill Vineyard with Lee and Regina Martinelli, but after reading your wonderful post I can’t bring myself to put word to paper.
    Will I see you at the WBA conference?

  • Thank you so much for the congratulations, Don, and for your kind words.
    I don’t think I’ll be able to make the conference this year—I have a couple of big projects in midstream right now, and it would be hard to get away.
    Best,
    Meg
