See a list of Wine Bloggers here.
Allan Wright and his colleagues who organize the North American Wine Blogger’s Conference keep track of this kind of info; recently, I completed a survey for them for wine bloggers and another one for food bloggers.

And in closing…
Some thank yous to many worthy folks. Some info about next year’s European Wine Bloggers Conference in Vienna from Ryan at Catavino…And now, where will next year be? The drum roll please….
The 2010 Wine Bloggers Conference will be held in Charlottesville VA in the Omni Hotel in downtown with an evening reception in Monticello.
According to the announcment, “The conference only works if people go for it.”
We’ll see if they do. Will I be there? Well, VA was my third choice if that’s any indication…I was really rooting for Paso Robles. Virginia is a long way to go, but I know I’d get a lot out of it just as I have the previous ones.
You can register starting now for the 2011 Wine Bloggers Conference to be held in July 2011.
