Pavilion Books, the publishers of Oz Clarke and Michael Broadbent sponsor the award every year.
Fiona Holman, Editorial Director of Pavilion Wine Books, said:
“This award aims to encourage new writing talent within the world of wine and to provide a real opportunity for some inspiring travel around vineyards and wineries across the globe. We are looking for wine writing potential rather than extensive knowledge or experience. We had a record number of quality entries this year which was most encouraging. I urge all this year’s entrants still eligible to enter again next year.”
