Louis Roederer International Wine Writers’ Awards Shortlist Announced!

25 July 2018 | by Andrea Frost

I am thrilled to announce I have been shortlisted in both the Ramos Pinto Online Communicator and the Mazzei International Wine Columnist categories in the 2018 Louis Roederer International Wine Writers’ Awards.

The shortlist, announced on July 19th, was decided by a panel of judges led by Chairman Charles Metcalfe including co-founder & CEO of Wine Lister Ella Lister, wine journalist Margaret Rand, wine writer Joanna Simon and Decanter Content Director John Stimpfig.

As stated in the media release:

“I was impressed by the breadth of the subject matter covered, some really original research and stylish writing,” commented Richard Mayson, while Joanna Simon delighted in “discovering some outstanding new writers whose work I look forward to following in future”.  This thought was echoed by Ella Lister who highlighted the “new and knowledgeable writers whose enthusiasm is infectious”, yet also reinforced the continued quality of “authors I already admire”.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Royal Academy in London in September.
