And the winner of the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge is…

September 29, 2013

….. 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.

Monthly wine writing challenge winnerSo 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 🙂

I’m sharing the list again in case you want to go back and have a browse – it’s really worthwhile whether you are ‘into’ wine or not.

    Each and every one of the posts was well worth reading until the end! I discovered some great new blogs thanks to this challenge and I don’t drink alcohol at all. Love serving a good well paired wine to my guests though.
    Thanks to all for adding new perspectives to the word possession!

      It does show that wine writing can be so much more than tasting notes. – Thanks for you lovely comment.

    Thank you everyone! Totally did not expect to win… I don’t ever write “creatively” as such (unless you count tasting notes), so it was a lot of fun to do something different… Now the real challenge – choosing the next theme!

    • October 2, 2013 9:03 am

      Can’t wait to hear what it is.
