Inside Burgundy wins André Simon award

Published:  07 April, 2011

Inside Burgundy by Jasper Morris MW, has won the 2010 André Simon award for best drinks book.

Berry Bros. & Rudd were also praised by judges for taking the decision to publish Inside Burgundy, which was identified by judges as "the best-looking book" and "a real labour of love".

Sarah Jane Evans MW, one of the André Simon award trustees, said: "Winners have to fulfill the criteria of being well written and designed, of educational value and of being a book that will last."

"There is lots to learn from the book and it can be enjoyed at several levels."

Author, Jasper Morris MW said: "I am thrilled that Inside Burgundy has won the André Simon Award and delighted for all those involved, especially designer Lizzie Ballantyne, our publishing partners Carrie Segrave and Chris Foulkes - their 8th André Simon award - and of course Simon Berry for his vision in starting the Berry Bros. & Rudd Press as a new wine book imprint."

The André Simon Memorial Award was started in 1978 in memory of the gastronome and author. A list of past winners of the drink book prize includes all the top names of wine writing.
