Wine writer, consultant, vineyard-owner and former merchant, Steven Spurrier is quite simply a legend in the industry. When he created the Judgement of Paris on May 24th 1976 — an historic event at which experts rated Californian wines above Bordeaux in a blind tasting — he single handedly changed the world’s perception of the industry. 2017 has been quite a year for Spurrier, who was appointed Honorary President of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and elevated to Chairman Emeritus for the Decanter World Wine Awards from his previous position as Chairman. He is currently focused on finishing his memoirs Wine, A Way of Life, published in April 2018.
