    What at great opportunity! Don’t be surprised if wine bloggers living in WA move to Oregon or Idaho for a few months to qualify for this. Who is judging and determining the BEST?

    • Bean says:

      Vivian,
      Last fall, I was asked to judge as well as other “key WA wine bloggers”. Check out the Supporting Washington Wine Bloggers list.
      I have asked Marcus, the organizer, to stop by and verify.

    • Bean says:

      Marcus emailed me to confirm that Catie, Kori, Margot, Sean, Shona, Thad and I will be judging.
