The Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards were founded in 2004 to celebrate all those who put down in words or images the magic of the wine world in order to educate and entertain.

As part of Champagne Louis Roederer’s ongoing commitment to pursuing excellence, the Awards encourage journalists, authors, bloggers, artists and photographers from all over the world to be judged by some of the greatest names in the wine trade today, hoping to be named the winner of their respective category.

The competition attracts entries from the world over – from Switzerland to Spain, Chile to China – all communicating through their preferred medium about topics and opinions as varied as the entrants themselves.

With no entry cost, the Awards attract candidates ranging from established trade communicators alongside new aspiring talent, all of whom are judged as peers by our highly skilled team of judges. Winners of each category will be awarded a magnum (or larger) from their sponsor of their respective category, a generous financial gift, as well as the greatest accolade in the world of wine communication – the title of a Louis Roederer Wine Writer of the Year Award.
