I just caught wind of this via Twitter this afternoon, but it appears that LENNDEVOURS/New York Cork Report has been named as a finalist in Saveur's 1st Annual best Food Blog Awards in the "Wine Blogs" category.

All any of us here at the NYCR hope to do is share New York wines and the the people, the places and the stories behind them with you on an almost-daily basis. That we occasionally receive recognition for our efforts is just amazing.

Looking at the other finalists, it's a great group that only scratches the surface of the blogs I like best — and it's an honor just to be nominated. I'm also proud to call many of the publishers friends who I've known for years.

So thank you to Saveur, the only food magazine that I subscribe to actually, for the nomination and thank you to all of our readers for being so supportive over the years.

If you'd like to vote for us and for your favorites in all of the other categories, head on over to the awards site now.

In the meantime, we'll continue with our regularly scheduled programming, bringing you the New York wine news, commentary and reviews you're looking for.
