The New York based duo from Eleven Madison Park have previously beaten thousands of competitors to win the prestigious title of “World’s Best Wine List” in the 2015 awards presented earlier this year. They will be joined by former judges Alder Yarrow, Elin McCoy and Tom Stevenson.
Neil Beckett, editor of The World of Fine Wine said: “We are delighted to have Daniel and Cedric as part of the judging process this year. They are clearly top of their field and their insight will enhance the awards in 2016.”
The World of Fine Wine “World’s Best Wine Lists” assesses thousands of entries from around the world giving the very best wine lists one star, two star and three star awards. A one star rating is given to a “good wine list”, a two star rating to a “very good wine list” and a three star rating to a “great wine list” based on the breadth, depth, interest, quality, value, organization and accuracy of the list. The awards also recognise the “World’s Best Wine List” and the best wine list by region and by class.
Now in its third year the awards are going from strength to strength and according to World Champion Sommelier Gerard Basset “Are rapidly becoming as coveted as Michelin Stars.”
The 2016 results will be announced in June and a full list of World of Fine Wine judges will be announced next month.
