Food – the perfect accompaniment

While wine can be enjoyed on its own, pairing it with food can so often create something greater than the sum of its parts. With this in mind, we are delighted to announce a new category – the Food & Wine Writer of the Year Award. True to the essence of the competition, for entries to be considered, the focus of the content must be balanced between wine its interaction with food. All articles must be written and published online or in print in English between April 1st 2014 and April 10th 2015.

The full list of categories for the 2015 Louis Roederer International Wine Writers is as follows:

–          The Artistry Award

–          The Emerging Wine Writer

–          The Online Communicator of the Year

–          The International Wine Book of the Year
