Lauren Mowery’s Unscrewed Column up for Best New Wine Blog Award!


Lauren Mowery has covered the wine beat here at Fork since the beginning of the year, and she’s reported on everything from New York City’s sherry queen to Brangelina’s foray into Provençal Rosé to chefs who drink wine. And for those great pieces, she’s a finalist for a Best New Wine Blog award.

The honor comes from the American Wine Blog Awards, which launched in 2007 to promote better wine journalism across the country. The group awards a handful of prizes each year in categories like Best Single Subject Wine Blog and Best Winery Blog in addition to Best Overall Wine Blog and Best New Wine Blog.

Mowery is up against Andre Rib, The Savvy Lush, What’s in the Bottle and herself–her personal wine blog, Chasing the Vine, is also a nominee.

Public voting and a judges’ score will determine the winner; voting is open until Friday, and winners will be announced shortly after the polls close.
