“Champagne, the wine and the growers” chosen as “best wine book of the year”

Just before Christmas we received an email that was one of the best Christmas presents we could get. In the email we read that our latest book, “Champagne, the wine and the growers”, had been awarded the first prize as the year’s best wine book in the “French wines” category in the Swedish edition of the Gourmand International awards. So great to get an “official” recognition for all the work we put down on that book. This means that our champagne book will be included in the international finals of the Gourmand International competition, which will take place in China in May.

Our ambition when we wrote the book was that it would be more detailed, more updated, more factually correct (and more easy to read) than the books on Champagne currently available on the market. And I think we were quite successful with that.

In addition, we wanted to bring forward the “growers” in Champagne (as opposed to the often more industrial, and more famous, “houses”). The book contains our selection of just over one hundred of some of the best growers in Champagne. Exciting champagnes; wines to discover.

Unfortunately, the book is currently only available in Swedish.

You can read more about the book here: Champagne, the wine and the growers.

I hope you cross your fingers for us at the competition in China in May!
