Awards and Accolades

The 2021 André Simon Memorial Prize for Inside Burgundy the Second Edition was the ninth time a book created by the Segrave Foulkes partners has won the prestigious award. Inside Burgundy also became the first title to win the André Simon twice: the First Edition won the 2010 Award.

Jane Anson’s Inside Bordeaux was named ‘Best in the World: Best of the Best’ in the Gourmand Awards 2021. It was shortlisted for the 2021 André Simon, Fortnum & Mason and Louis Roederer Awards.

In 2017 Exploring & Tasting Wine: a Wine Course with Digressions was named ‘Best in the World – Wine Books’ at the Gourmand Awards.

Inside Burgundy: the Annual Report was named ‘Best in the World – eBooks’ at the Gourmand Awards 2015.

Earlier Segrave Foulkes awards include the unique distinction of monopolising the entire short-list for the Glenfiddich Drinks Book of the Year Awards: the titles were Château Latour and the eventual prize-winner, Michael Jackson’s Beer Companion.

Rhône Renaissance, created by Segrave Foulkes, won all three top UK publishing awards: the André Simon Prize, the Lanson Prize and Glenfiddich Drinks Book of the Year. The Larousse Encyclopedia of Wine was granted an Exceptional Award by The Wine Guild of the United Kingdom, and was runner-up for the André Simon Prize. The Wine Guild also awarded a Special Certificate of Merit to Segrave Foulkes “in recognition of the outstanding quality of their publication Château Latour”. Latour was also named Best Book on a Single Wine in the Decanter Wine Books of the Year awards.

Over his publishing career, books created by Christopher Foulkes have won more than 60 awards in the USA, Britain, Germany and France. To take one example, the premier wine book award in the USA, the James Beard Award, began in 1991. Titles published by Foulkes won in 1991, 1992 and 1993.
