Happy 1st Birthday to Wine Peeps!

By Kori ~ January 9th, 2009.

20090109_1stbirthdayToday marks one year since our very first Wine Peeps post. What an amazing year it has been! We have written 197 posts, tasted over 1200 wines, traveled to wineries, vineyards, and tasting rooms all over the country, attended the first ever North American Wine Bloggers Conference, and met wonderful people in the wine industry as well as fellow wine enthusiasts.

Thank you so much to all of our readers! We could not do this without you. We love wine and love sharing that passion with others through this blog. When we first started, we had no idea if anyone would care to read what we had to write. It is humbling to know how many of you do. You have helped our readership grow at a rate of over 30 percent per month since we started a year ago. It truly has been a pleasure to get to know many of you through comments and email. And we hope our relationship continues to grow in the year ahead.

We will strive to provide you with even more compelling wine-related content in our second year. In order to evaluate what we are doing well, what needs improvement, and to learn a little more about you as readers of this blog, we hope that as a birthday present to us, you will take a few minutes of your time and answer our short reader survey:

As an added incentive, if you answer the survey and provide us with your email address in the last question, we will enter you into a drawing for a chance to win a Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator.

We hope that you will continue to support us by reading Wine Peeps and telling your friends about it.

Cheers from your Wine Peeps,
Kori, John, Colby, and LaGayle
