Two MWs shortlisted for book awards

Published:  15 December, 2009

Two Masters of Wine have been shortlisted for the 2009 André Simon Food & Drink Book Awards.

Asian Palate by Jeannie Cho Lee MW and What Price Bordeaux? by Benjamin Lewin MW, are among the four books shortlisted in this year's Wine, Drinks and Beverages category.

The MWs' works, published in 2009, are among 10 books in line for the awards which commemorate the life and work of Andre Louis Simon (1877 - 1970). 

Simon was a leading London champagne shipper for more than 30 years, served as president of the Wine & Food Society for 33 years and wrote 104 books over 66 years.

Masters of Wine have been regular winners in the awards over the past 30 years and the judging panel will announce the results of the 2009 awards in spring 2010.

The André Simon Memorial Fund was established in 1972 and one of its objectives is to benefit the public generally in the fields of food and drink.
