My 15 minutes of fame?

“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes” Andrej Varhola, Jr

This week I had the extremely unexpected (but nice!) surprise to find myself listed as one of Wine Owners’ top 10 most influential UK wine writers and bloggers:

Top 10 UK influencers
Top 10 UK influencers

Among such esteemed company I felt like something of a charlatan, but given that it’s principally based on social media, and I tweet a LOT, there might be a grain of truth in it. Of course the other writers in the top 10 have newspaper columns and have published books, so it’s not as though social media is their main outlet (and if any paper needs a new writer, drop me a line 😉 )

A BIG thank you to all the people who read my blog and tweets, to those who have collaborated with me, and to the importers and producers who have put on such excellent tastings.

Apparently it will be updated in six months, but I think Jancis will rest easy.

Friday the 13th Update: selected people (including myself), but not all, have been taken off the list because we don’t live in the UK.
