The winners of the 2015 Born Digital Awards, which are multi-lingual, were announced at the Digital Wine Communications Conference (DWCC) at the Gala Dinner in Plodiv on Saturday night.  It was good to hear that the chief sponsor of the award, Wine In Moderation, intend to grow these awards.

Unfortunately few at DWCC15 appeared to notice the irony that Moët, as one of the award's sponsors, provided the Champagne for the reception before the start of the DWCC15 Gala Dinner in the very week that the Champenoise failed in their attempt to extinguish Champagne Jayne. 

I politely declined and opted for something else – rarely has sparkling mineral water tasted so good!

Hi Jim,

Thanks for posting this. The link to our Cab Wars video doesn't appear to be working. Could you please add it?
