We're Nominated for a Foodbuzz Blog Award

Margot and I are so happy to announce that the Ancient Fire Wine Blog has been nominated in the Best Single Topic category for the 2011 Foodbuzz Blog Awards!

Our focus here is alcoholic beverages, like you didn't know, and the stories about how and where we find them. This includes wine, beer, cider, mead, spirits and cocktails. We make some of our own, sample commercial products from far and wide and share how we integrate these beverages into our own lives. We also explore what the local beverage producers are doing, try our hand at pairings and travel the world looking for the stories of how others are drinking well.

My wife and I also give back. In 2003 I was diagnosed and successfully treated for testicular cancer. In the 8+ years since our scrappy team of volunteers and fundraisers have helped raise over $82,000 for the American Cancer Society and Lance Armstrong Foundation!!! I'm going to ask you to vote for me below, but if you only have 5 minutes I would ask you first to make a donation to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Voting for me in the Foodbuzz Blog Awards is pretty cool, but fighting back against cancer makes you someone's hero. You can donate using the link below.

I hope you'll consider casting a vote for us, a unique blog with a great story from the ranks of the Foodbuzz Featured Publishers. I'll be at the Foodbuzz Festival in November where the winners will be announced, so no matter who wins I will be there to cheer on all the nominees and winners.

A listing of all the categories, nominees and a link for voting can be found at

Congratulations and good luck to everyone who is in the running!

Thank You!
