Shameless self-promotion time.
After missing out on the Andre Simon award, I've had a spot of good news this week.
On Tuesday I found out that Wine Science has been shortlisted for the Roederer Award (announced May 16th at the LIWSF), and today I learned that it's also been shortlisted for the Glenfiddich award. That's announced a day earlier. Fantastic.
As if that wasn't enough, I'm also shortlisted for Roederer winewriter of the year - the official shortlist says it's for articles in the 'Sun, Express and World of Fine Wine'. Erm, I've never written for The Sun - makes me sound like the tabloid king - think it was meant to read the 'Sunday Express'. I'd love to win the Roederer. I think you get a case of Cristal. If I do, I'll get a bin, fill it with ice, put the bottles in, put on some bling, whack the gagsta rap on, and you're all invited round. Party on.
