Everyone’s a critic, but only a few are lucky enough to receive an award for being so.
TheNakedWineShow, a Canadian produced-online program about selecting, tasting and enjoying wines, is the recipient of a 2010 Tasty Award, presented in the category of Best Critic or Review show.
Every week, program host Susan Sterling gives the skinny on a new wine in about a minute. From tasting notes, to price points, to food pairings, she gives the score on The Naked Wine Show, and doesn’t waste any time pouring out information that consumers need to make an informed purchase.
The show is posted online, and available by subscription via iTunes for iPod, computer, or AppleTV playback.
An accompanying online blog provides even more information, and readers can follow Susan’s wine adventures as she travels the world in search of unique and special wines, and shares her personal stories online.
Winners of the 2010 Tasty Awards were announced and recipients collected their honours during a Red Carpet Awards Show event in San Francisco, CA.
Portions of the presentations were recorded for broadcast on national television in February 2010, and online via Hulu.com to millions of U.S. households.
Lifetime Achievement Awards and other Special Awards were also presented to valuable contributors to the industry.
The Naked Wine Show comes from slurpswish.com, an affiliate of Toronto-based media production company Frogwater Media. Headed up by executive producer and CEO Tim Troke, the Toronto-based company produces a wide range of content for TV, broadband and mobile.
For example, Frogwater recently aired an hour long holiday special, Magic Man, on CBC-TV. The program spotlights internationally-acclaimed Canadian magican Greg Frewin.
The Tasty Awards were originally conceived and announced in 2008 as part of the first New Media Tastemakers Summit in San Francisco. The goal was to recognize and acknowledge outstanding excellence in video content focused on food, drink, fashion and design.
Such categories dominate a large portion of video / television viewership - as well as advertising spending and sponsorships – but they did not have their own awards for achievement until now.
