2011 Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship

In 2011, the fourth annual Wine Bloggers Conference will take place in Charlottesville, Virginia. The conference is the premier event for wine bloggers and others involved in the wine industry to gather, network, learn, debate and explore topics of the world of wine.

This year, we are proud to be partnering with the Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship fund. There are many bloggers that are unemployed, or simply cannot afford to make the trip to Virginia. This fund aims to select bloggers who wish to learn more about blogging, develop their writing style, and network with other bloggers and industry professionals in a creative, fun environment.

100% of the proceeds will be given to the Wine Bloggers Conference for their scholarship efforts. Please consider contributing, as your donation* is tax deductible as defined in Section 501(c) (3) of the IRS code. You may donate below or give directly from the WBC Scholarship site. No amount is too small and all donations are greatly appreciated.

For more information, visit the Wine Bloggers Conference or Scholarship site. Applicants who wish to apply for the scholarship may do so starting January 1st.

*As with all charitable donations, please consult with your tax accountant or attorney to determine available tax benefits.

Speed tasting – I was ousted by some dude named Steve Paulo. #twitterfail #twitterfail #twitterfail #twitterfail I demand a rematch!

Controversy over the ’09 Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz – Time to throw a red flag here. At $180 a bottle, I expected more. Did price influence bloggers?

Private barrel tasting at Basel Cellars: Winemaker Justin Basel of Basel Cellars rocked it with a private barrel tasting of the ’08 Malbec which happens to be some pretty tasty juice.

…and listening to Chad Johnson from Dusted Valley – talking about evacuating Basel Cellars Cellar… Hilarious! Read the full story
