In addition, we have also been selected as a finalist for an award in the Audio Webcast or Radio Show category.

Here is our James Beard Award nominated audio show: Thomas Jefferson and Wine.

More than 60 awards are given out each year in the categories of cookbooks, restaurants, chefs, design, graphics, broadcast media, journalism, and achievement.

GrapeRadio.com – James Beard Award Finalist v2.0

08jamesbeard.jpg For the second year in a row GrapeRadio.com has been named as a finalist for the prestigious James Beard Foundation Award. To put it in perspective, this is kind of like finding out the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences likes your “little” movie. We have been selected this year in the category of Video and Webcasting for our short documentary: Stewards of the Land.

The credit for recognition such as this belongs to my partners in the enterprise: Brian, Jay and Eric who do the day to day heavy lifting that makes GrapeRadio what it is.
