Lifetime Achievement Award to be announced at Vinexpo

2017’s recipient of The Lifetime Achievement Award from the drinks business and the Institute of Masters of Wine will be announced next Monday at Vinexpo.

Hugh Johnson was given the award in 2015 at a ceremony at Vinexpo Bordeaux where members of the wine industry gathered to honour his lifelong contribution to the trade. This year’s winner will be announced next week.

The fair, which runs from next Sunday to Wednesday in Bordeaux, will feature a lunchtime event to celebrate the recipient of this year’s award.

The Lifetime Achievement Award (LAA) recognises an outstanding and inspirational figure in the world of wine, whose enduring contribution spans a whole career.

The award has previously been presented to Robert Mondavi (2005), Marchese Piero Antinori (2007), Jean-Michel Cazes (2011), Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (2013) and Hugh Johnson OBE (2015) – who is pictured at the awards ceremony during Vinexpo Bordeaux two years ago.

The winner will be announced at a lunch on Monday 19 June, which will run from 11:45am-2pm at the Vinexpo Academy, Room 4, Hall 3.
