Sam Ockman from the 1000 Corks blog was randomly selected to win the free trip to Spain and the WineFuture Conference and has eagerly accepted. (We used the random number generator on random.org for those who wish to know.) Sam writes to us:
“I’m very excited and will be sure to take lots of photos to share with everyone. I’ve even been thinking of getting into doing some video blogs — I think this will be the perfect opportunity for me to start, and a great way to bring the excitement back to the American wine blogging community.”
Sam’s name was drawn from among the 70 people who had signed up for the 2010 North American Wine Bloggers Conference by August 31st and the trip was graciously donated by WineFuture and coordinated by Ryan and Gabriella at Catavino.net. The prize includes airfare, lodging, meals, VIP attendance at the conference including the chance to meet Robert Parker, and a day of visits to local wineries.
Congratulations, Sam! We are excited to see your reports.
