LRIWWA winners and shortlist 2017

The Annual Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards (LRIWWA) have become some of the most respected wine industry awards in recent years. After months of reading and judging the many different entries from around the globe, the jury panel picked their winners and announced them at the awards ceremony held at the Royal Academy of Arts on 13 September.

“As the results of the LRIWWA amply demonstrated, writing about wine is alive and well,” commented Chairman of the Judges Charles Metcalfe. We had winners from among the established writers, and a new generation of young, emerging talent as well.”
