Tom Stevenson has been writing about wine—particularly Champagne and Alsace—for more than 30 years. He is the winner of 32 literary awards, including The Wine Literary Award, America’s only lifetime- achievement award for wine writers. His Christie’s World Encyclopedia of Champagne & Sparkling Wine made history by being the only wine book to warrant a leader in a national newspaper (The Guardian) when it published a 17th-century document proving beyond doubt that the English used a second fermentation to convert still wine into sparkling at least six years before Dom Pérignon set foot in the Abbey of Hautvillers. Tom also conceived the acclaimed Wine Report.
The 7th edition of the World’s Best Wine Lists awards will still continue. Anyone who already entered their list will be in the judging process which is not affected by the current Covid-19 crisis, and anyone still wishing to submit their wine list can do so till Friday 17th July. The results will be published as usual by December 2020.
