Much excitement in our household today for various different reasons.

Most importantly, it was one little person’s very first birthday – cue cake and wrapping paper fixation…

But equally exciting was the news that Peter had been short-listed for the Louis Roederer International Wine Columnist/Blogger of the Year 2011 award, for articles on this site.

Needless to say, we are all feeling very chuffed (as well as full of cake).

We’ll report on the results when they’re announced in September. In the meantime, huge congratulations to all those nominated – the full list can be found by clicking here.
