Your friendly, neighborhood, award-winning journalist

99 bottles of wine on the wall...The fine people behind the “AltWeekly Awards,” the annual, national honors bestowed by the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies, were kind enough to award me first place in “Food Writing/Criticism” for a paper with a “circulation of 60,000 or less” this past weekend in Portland, OR. The nod was for my contributions as a wine writer for the North Bay Bohemian under the fine editorship of Gretchen Giles.

The official announcement is here. The columns which won the accolade can be perused in the wine section.

Of course, I’ll now be referring to myself as “Award-winning wine writer Daedalus Howell,” and recommending “brilliant little wines” to everyone — that is, until the intervention.
