Tom Stevenson has been writing about wine for more than 40 years. He has won 33 literary awards, including Wine Writer of the Year three times, the Wine Literary Award, and America’s only lifetime achievement award for wine writers. In 1998, he was the first person to publish a 17th century document proving that the English invented sparkling Champagne six years before Dom Pérignon set foot in Hautvillers. This ensured his Christie’s World Encyclopedia of Champagne & Sparkling Wine also made history as the only wine book to warrant a leader a British national newspaper. In 2011 he was inducted into the New York Wine Media Guild’s Hall of Fame. He has written 28 books, which have been translated into more than 25 languages. Additionally, he was a founder and contributing editor of Wine Report. His Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia has sold more than 700,000 copies worldwide. He lives in the United Kingdom.
