IWSC is delighted to collaborate with Steven Spurrier, one of the world’s most eminent wine professionals, and with the Académie du Vin Library.

Spurrier, who has the IWSC as Honorary Chair in 2020, was recently described by Jancis Robinson MW as “the unsung hero of the British wine trade”.

He has been deeply involved in wine for over 50 years – as a wine merchant, critic, author, winemaker and latterly co-founder of the Académie du Vin Library, a newly launched publishing house specialising in wine books.

Spurrier's Bride Valley Rose Bella 2014 was awarded 95 points in IWSC 2019, and was described by experts as an "elegant, regal, and classic wine".
