Starting blocks for 2014 Louis Roederer International (English only) Wine Writing Awards

Message from the organisers: 

'2014 Wine Writers’ Competition Now Open
Champagne Louis Roederer is delighted to declare the 10th Louis Roederer International Wine Writers’ Awards 2014 open. 

Based on the feedback we have from entrants we have made some changes to the categories. The Online Columnist and Blogger categories are now combined into a single category Online Communicator and we have added a new category of Short Copy Columnist. We have left out the Website category this year to enable us to concentrate more on the art of writing.

Apart from the prestige that winning a Roederer can bring, there is a generous financial prize and Cristal for each category - in 2013 £1500 and a magnum of stunning Cristal 2004. As last year you will now see that select categories are sponsored by some of the other producers represented by Louis Roederer in the UK. These sponsors will also be donating a special prize to their respective categories.

With over a third of the entries in 2013 coming from countries outside the UK The Roederers are truly international - we would like to think that the global reach of the competition will be further extended this year. For full details and rules of entry please visit'
