Wine Wars Update: Wine Spectator Feature & Wine Book Award

Wine Wars is featured in the year-end collection of book reviews in Wine Spectator magazine’s “Top 100” issue, which will hit newsstands in a few days. You can’t miss it — it’s the first book reviewed and there’s a big color image of the book cover. Thanks for your support, Wine Spectator!

Two of the featured books were also reviewed here at The Wine Economist: Katherine Cole’s Voodoo Vintners and Authentic Wine by Jamie Goode and Sam Harrop. Ian Mount’s history of Argentina wine, The Vineyard at the End of the World is also included in this WS article — look for a review here in early January, just before the book’s official publication date.


I also want to thank the folks at the Gourmand International Wine Book Awards.  According to the email I received earlier this week they’ve named Wine Wars the best American wine book of 2011 in the history category. It will now enter the competition for the global wine book awards. The full list of winners will be revealed in Paris in March 2012. Merci beaucoup for the honor!

BTW the Wine Wars World Tour is picking up steam. Click here to see the book event schedule.

  1. I bought both your book & Authentic Wine last month to add to my wine book collection. I look forward to cracking the spine on Wine Wars.

  2. Congratulations, Mike! This is wonderful news and I hope the publicity really helps your book sales, you deserve it!

    And also to Katherine Cole with Voodoo Vintners. You two are the first and only two wine writers and authors to write about Fat Cork, so it is just great that such good people (who love Champagne : ) are highlighted by Wine Spectator.
