Awards and Accolades

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

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

The 2010 André Simon Memorial Prize for Inside Burgundy was the eighth occasion when a book created by the Segrave Foulkes partners has won the prestigious award.

The firm’s output has been recognised by a string of awards. These include the unique distinction one year 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 the Glenfiddich Drinks Book of the Year Award. 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.
