The author:

Tom Stevenson has been writing about wine for over 40 years. He has won 34 literary awards, including Wine Writer of the Year three times and the Wine Literary Award, as well as America's only lifetime achievement award for wine writers. In 1998, he was the first to publish a 17th-century document proving that the English had invented sparkling champagne six years before Dom Pérignon set foot in Hautvillers. His work Christie's World Encyclopedia of Champagne & Sparkling Wine thus made history by becoming the only book on wine to be the subject of a lead article in a British national newspaper (The Guardian, October 14, 1998). In 2011, he was inducted into the New York Wine Media Guild Hall of Fame. He has written 28 books, the most important of which have been published internationally by more than 50 publishers and translated into more than 25 languages. Additionally, he designed and contributed to the writing of Wine Report. His book Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia (now The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia) has sold more than 700,000 copies worldwide. Tom Stevenson has judged major wine competitions in France, Germany, Greece, Australia and the United States. He is the president and founder of Champagne; Sparkling Wine World Championship (CSWWC) since 2014.
