'This blogger' elected chair of the Circle of Wine Writers

Stuart Walton (retiring Circle chair), Steven Spurrier (CWW president), 
Jim (new CWW Chair) 

'This blogger' was honoured and delighted to be elected chair of the Circle of Wine Writers. Min will be a two-year term of office. This marks a first for the Circle electing the first Chair who is a regular blogger. It emphasises both that the CWW does evolve and that it certainly welcomes membership applications from regular bloggers as well as from people who communicate about wine in more 'traditional' media.  

I am lucky to take over from Stuart Walton, who has been Chair for the last four years.

And well deserved too, if I may say so.
Being chair of anything can be hard work and a thankless task at times but I hope you will enjoy putting your own personal stamp on it, including the sartorial aspects!
