Happy 2nd Birthday to Wine Peeps!



By Kori ~ January 8th, 2010.

Happy 2nd Birthday to Wine Peeps!Tomorrow marks two years since we started sharing our wine adventures with you here on Wine Peeps. What an exciting two years it has been! We have written 456 posts and tasted over 2,500 wines. We have had the pleasure to meet so many wonderful people in the wine industry as well as fellow wine enthusiasts. This past year, we traveled to numerous wineries, vineyards, and tasting rooms in Washington, Idaho, Texas, California, Canada, and South Africa. We also attended our second North American Wine Bloggers Conference.

Thank you so much to all of our readers! I know it sounds cliché, but we could not do this without you. We love wine and love sharing that passion with you through this blog. We are humbled that you care to read what we write. We are thrilled to report that our readership has grown to the point where we are ranked #6 in the Top 100 Wine Blogs, #25 in Food Blogs (out of 7,437), and #86 in Living Blogs (out of 15,671). Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!

The past year also brought a new website design, a new logo, and a social networking presence on Twitter, Facebook, OpenWine Consortium, and LinkedIn. It truly has been a pleasure to get to know many of you through comments, email, and these social networking sites. We certainly hope our relationship continues to grow in the year ahead.

In the coming year, we will strive to provide you with even more compelling wine-related content. 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 name and email address in the last question, we will enter you into a drawing for a chance to win a copy of the book, What to Drink with What You Eat by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page.

We hope that you will continue to support us by reading Wine Peeps and telling your friends about it. We welcome the opportunity to connect on any or all of the social networking sites as well.

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