Bragging time? We have not shared the beautiful pictures of it before, but we have mentioned it (I think even several times). Our last book, The Creation of a Wine (Ett vin blir till, in Swedish) first won the prize (award?) in Sweden as Best Wine Book of the Year. Or if one should be precise, Best Swedish Beverage Book of the Year 2010.
We were quite happy with that since it was rather an ambitious book with lots of text (almost 300 pages) and also a lot of pictures of course. It was not at all a gloss coffee table book or a “wow” style book but really a serious, informative, almost education type of book.
It then went on to wine a prize in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards as The Best Wine Book in the World for Professionals 2010. (Or 2011, I’m not quite sure. The book was published in 2009/2010 but we received the prize in 2011.).
All this made us immensely proud. We even receive nice-looking certificates (diplomas?) to prove it. And this is where I will come to the point of this post. We have not yet showed you these beautiful documents, so here they are our book prizes in picture!
(And I must add that we have just finished the very final corrections on the manuscript of our next book, Wine and the Environment, that will be available by the end of August.)
