I’ve just learned that my new book Money, Taste, and Wine: It’s Complicated has won an international award for best drinks writing in a U.S. book this year.
The award comes from Gourmand International and will be presented in Yantai, China on May 28, 2016 at the annual awards ceremony. As the U.S. winner, Money, Taste, and Wine is a finalist for the “Best in the World” award in this category, the winner of which will be revealed in Yantai. Very exciting!
The other national finalists and winners in other categories of the awards will be posted on Gourmand International website in February.
Sincere thanks to the Gourmand International judges for this honor. Here is a video about the 2015 awards in Yantai. Enjoy!

Grazie mille, Alessandro!
Congratulations, Mike! I very much enjoy your writing and vicariously enjoy the types of wine-related gatherings where you are making presentations. Happy holidays! Kathy
Thanks, Kathy. I am lucky to be invited to speak at these events. Cheers!
That is worth a tip of the glass..

Thanks, Howard! I think we will open one of your Sandhill Wines to celebrate!
Hi Mike – I’ve read your other books (or should I say listened) and I was wondering if this one was being released on audio book? Btw, the narrator on Wine Wars was much preferred to the one on Extreme Wine! Have you had that feedback a few times now from various sources?
Thanks, Guy. I have heard that from others and will be sure my publisher is informed. I do expect that the new book will go audio, but not sure when. Thanks again!
Congratulations, Mike; you are the man! I am ordering your book today.
Absolutely awesome. Congratulations!
Very well done! Well deserved if you win! Are you going to head over to the awards?
Thanks. Not sure about the awards ceremony at this point. It would be a great chance to see the Yantai wine region.
MIke big congrats on this win! Bravo! Hope the world tour is going well. We had an incredible trip to SA in Feb… Part of the next book that is due out in April 2017 in UK and the following year in the US. Will be in touch closer to the time.
