Summing up the year in blog posts from Wine Country Geographic's blog Organic Wine Uncorked, here are the most popular posts from 2012 (includes only posts with 50 or more views) below.
Thank you to all of you who have circulated these online - that's probably how most of them got viewed.
Since I started this blog in May 2011, it's gotten close to 25,000 page views...way beyond my expectations.
The most popular posts from 2012 were about some common themes:
Wine sales - recommendations, discount codes, etc.
Winery release parties
Organic selects from leading industry competitions (Sunset, Wine Spectator, Hospice du Rhone, etc.)
In addition, a few articles about policy (Argentina's wine grape pesticides, French on American laws, and bee colony collapse and wine grape insecticides) have also made the top posts - which especially does my heart good.
In the coming months, I will be working hard to complete the app I started in 2011 - it will feature 250+ organically grown wines you can find for under $20. I guarantee you'll like the wines - many are on top lists from a variety of wine writers and critics - and if you do, you can look forward to telling others about the app!
