Louis Roederer Wine Writers’ Awards 2019 open

Entries are now open for this year’s Champagne Louis Roederer International Wine Writers’ Awards 2019.

2018’s award winners

The competition, now in their 15th year, is open to wine writers from all countries, through all written and visual mediums. The 2019 competition will see the launch of a new category, the Pio Cesare Consumer Title Writer of the Year, which will replace the Food and Wine Award. This new category is aimed at journalists who do not specialise in wine, and excludes wine specific publications and broadsheet newspapers.

The Consumer Title Writer of the Year will be a published lifestyle journalist or writer from a non-specialist wine background who is communicating about wine “directly to consumers in an interesting and thought provoking way”.

Last year saw Adrian Lander win the ‘Artistry of Wine Award’, Hannah Fuellenkemper was named ‘Emerging wine Writer of the Year’, Tim Atkin MW won ‘Online Communicator’, Dan Keeling was named ‘Food and Wine Writer of the Year’, Guy Woodward was ‘Wine Columnist of the Year’, Nina Caplan’s ‘The Wandering Vine: Wine, the Romans and Me’ was named ‘Wine Book of the Year’, Simon Woolf won ‘International Feature Writer of the Year’, and Kelli White was given the ‘Chairman’s Award’.

This year’s judging panel, chaired by Charles Metcalfe, includes, Joanna Simon, John Stimpfig, Emma Symington MW, Anne Krebiehl MW, Victoria Moore and Victoria Hall.
