The World's Finest Glass of Bubbly Award 2017
Glass of Bubbly is the leading magazine and website for all things Champagne and sparkling wine related. Regular opinion-piece features are reinforced with a wealth of approachable factual articles, detailing the production processes and legislation surrounding the sparkling wine category. These are supplemented by a library of tasting notes and food pairings. If you ever have a question about sparkling wine, Glass of Bubbly is the place to find the answer.
It’s an exciting time for the publication as they have just launched the inaugural The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly competition. With a prominent consumer focus, the award categories will be easily accessible and recognisable with classes such as Fruity and Floral, Classic and Elegant. This is a significant move away from categories which refer to the wines’ technical style of Blanc de Blancs and Brut Nature etc. which are still sadly misunderstood by a wide sector of the consumer market.
The wines will be judged in October by a team of 20 from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. High profile chefs, sommeliers and wine buyers will be joined by wine reviewers, social media experts and two consumers.
The award-winning wines will be announced on 23rd November and will enjoy extensive marketing and social media exposure. There will be 11 Gold Category winners and the overall “The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly”. The award will afford the winner up to £500,000 of positive PR, communication and marketing. The consumer focus will be highlighted and celebrated throughout with the awards suggesting which occasion each wine suits best as well as detailing the flavours and style.
I’m looking forward to seeing which wines win each category and am pleased that such a positive emphasis is being placed on championing the diversity and excitement of the sparkling wine sector.
