The world of blogs contains the good, the bad and the ugly. Finding a blog worth checking out on a regular basis is usually an exercise in trial and error. Word of mouth can help propel the best blogs. In the case of wine blogs, Tom Wark, creator of Fermentation, a wine blog at www.fermentation.typepad.com, launched a competition to find the best.
Four wine blogs in each of seven categories were selected by a panel, then 2,800 people voted on the best. Here are the results of the recently completed 2007 Wine Blog Awards:
Best Overall Wine Blog: Dr. Vino's Wine Blog -- www.drvino.blogspot.com
