I am proud to announce that my book ‘Jura Wine’ has been shortlisted for the prestigious award of Louis Roederer International Wine Book of the Year in the 10th International Wine Writers’ Awards 2014.
The International Wine Book of the Year 2014 is sponsored by Domaines Faiveley.
Judges for all the categories in competition were Jamie Goode, Robert Joseph, Gabriella Opaz and Margaret Rand, chaired by Charles Metcalfe.
It is a real honour to be included on this list with the other four books which are as follows:
The Champagne Guide 2014-2015
by Tyson Stelzer
Christie’s World Encyclopedia of Champagne and sparkling wine
by Tom Stevenson & Essi Avellan MW
The New California Wine
by Jon Bonné
The World Atlas of Wine 7th Edition
by Hugh Johnson & Jancis Robinson OBE MW
The winner will be announced at a special event for all the Louis Roederer Wine Writers’ Awards in London on Tuesday 9 September 2014.

If you haven’t yet purchased the book, check out the reviews and the book stockists soon as stocks are going down … There will be an e-book in the next month or so, so look out for that, however it won’t look half as good as the printed book and will not be heavily discounted either.
Thanks are due once again to all who encouraged me to write the book, supported its publication, purchased it in advance or bought it more recently, as well as everyone who helped me so much in its production. Thanks too to all the Jura vignerons and their wines, without whom there would, of course, be no book.
