Wine Oh TV 2012 Wine Blog Awards WinnerIt is estimated that well over 1,000 wine blogs are published today, where only a handful could be found just a few years ago.

Wine Oh TV Founder and Host, Monique Soltani

“This wine blog award win comes as a complete surprise to me! The competition was so steep and my fellow finalists represent an amazing group of wine bloggers, who are all worthy of winning.  My background is in broadcast journalism, so it is such an unbelievable honor for Wine Oh TV to be recognized by the judges and the public as the best of the best video blogs on the web! I shoot, write and edit all of the stories myself so to be recognized for the excellent quality of the video is extremely meaningful to me.”

Wine Blog Awards Organizer, Joel Vincent

“These award-winners demonstrate the enormous talent operating within the wine blogosphere and the array of wine education, criticism and reporting that is available to consumers within this genre. What’s exciting is the combination of experienced and new bloggers that are honored at our fifth annual awards, not to mention the really important contribution that wine blogs are making to the international conversation on wine and the wine industry.”
