The Louis Roederer shortlist is out today. I was shortlisted for the online category, which was nice. But I also entered three other categories, which I wasn't shortlisted for. A shame, but I guess I'm just not good enough. Here's the shortlist for the online category, which is new this year:
Louis Roederer Award for International Online Wine Writer of the Year 2008
Tom Cannavan for www.wine-pages.com
Jamie Goode for www.wineanorak.com and www.wineanorak.com/blog
Chris Losh for articles on www.just-drinks.com
Jancis Robinson for www.jancisrobinson.com
It's really good that there is an online category, but looking at the judging panel, it will be a miracle if Jancis doesn't win it.
