And the winner of the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge is…
….. Wine Kat who wrote a short story about Possession and wine which reminded me of Roald Dahl’s style. Beautifully crafted and kept me reading until the end.
There was a lot of jostling for top position though, Talk-a-Vino and The Drunken Cyclist were just pipped at the post.
Thanks to everyone who read all the articles and voted. I thought the standard was extremely high and every post a rewarding, interesting or entertaining read and it seems you did too.
So September’s (actually more like October’s) Monthly Wine Writing Challenge is handed over to The Wine Kat. Kat will choose the theme for next month, and has the power to change the rules or keep it as it is. I did consult The Drunken Cyclist a couple of times this month so thanks
