IWSC's Emerging Talent awards are an unparalleled opportunity for new and exciting voices in the wine, spirit and hospitality industries to break into the drinks industry, and gain exposure and recognition for their work.
Have you spotted someone who you think is destined to be the wine world’s next big star? The Julian Brind Trophy for Emerging Talent in the Wine Industry is designed to find just that.
The trophy is awarded to someone who demonstrates a real dedication and passion for wine beyond the scope of their day job; the recipient will have already established a track record in their field, will be taking part in the wider aspects of the wine trade, and will show commitment and determination in everything they do.
Sponsored by Waitrose, this award was created to honour the late Julian Brind MW, who was an integral part of the Waitrose & Partners wine team for over 40 years and a long-standing IWSC judge.
The winner will be announced in March 2021.
New for 2021, this award is sponsored by CONEGLIANO VALDOBBIADENE SUPERIORE DOCG PROSECCO. The winner will be announced in March and they will be invited to Prosecco.
