The entries are in and we had a great turn out.  I have had time to read…one.  But I will change that this week as the voting has begun.   Here is what I have.  If you didn’t email it to me or comment, I may not have found it so let me know if you posted somewhere else and didn’t link.

Rules will continue.  Vote once, you may or may not vote for yourself.  Pick three.  If you’d like, in the spirit of the Olympics, I can announce Gold, Silver, and Bronze.  So pour yourself a cup of joe or a glass of Beau-jo and enjoy the many talents of the entrants.

  3. The post should be more or less around 1000 words (I’m not one for hard and fast rules)
  4. Include the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge badge that was designed by the very first winner, The Armchair Sommelier.
  5. Once you post on your blog, link back to this post (or somehow notify me), and I will be sure to include a link here as well as on all subsequent posts about this month’s challenge.
