NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Snooth.com, the world's largest online wine community, is announcing the winners of the inaugural People's Voice Wine Awards, the wine industry's first consumer-driven wine awards program.
Partnering with Eating Well, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Recipe.com and Family Circle, the People's Voice Wine Awards reached 23,000 voters. Over 85,000 votes were cast by the public.
Trends in votes revealed the most popular wine category to be Red Blends, followed by Riesling. The wine region to receive the most votes was Napa Valley. Wine consumers who voted were located all over the world, but the city that contributed the most votes was New York City. Using these and other trends, we've built a People's Voice Wine Awards infographic, which delivers even more information about the average wine consumer. You can find it here.
