IWSC Trophy success for Charles Heidsieck & Domaine Laroche

It was an evening of celebration at yesterday’s International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014 awards presentation and banquet at Guildhall in the City of London, with five of our producers among the major trophy winners.

Charles Heidsieck were presented with the Non-Vintage Champagne trophy (for their Brut Réserve NV), and Vintage Champagne trophy (for their Rosé Millésimé 1999). They were also named the Champagne Producer of the Year and then crowned the overall IWSC Winemaker of the Year in special recognition of their unrivalled success at this year’s competition.

Chablis producer Domaine Laroche was awarded the French Wine Producer of the Year trophy, while Inniskillin scooped the Canadian Wine Producer of the Year trophy and Nyetimber the English Wine Producer of the Year trophy. Vigneti Zabù, an exciting estate in southwestern Sicily, was presented with the International Indigenous Grape Varieties trophy for their Impari Nero d’Avola IGT 2011.

Congratulations to all our trophy-winning producers!  The full results are published on the IWSC website.
