Tom Cannavan's   

Tom Stevenson

Tom is the world's most respected authority on Champagne and sparkling wine. Author of The World Encyclopedia of Champagne and Sparkling Wine, and the Annual Champagne and Sparkling Wine Guide, Tom has picked up no less than 31 major wine writing awards (not including the three picked up by Wine Report, which he shares with 40-odd contributors - see below). He is also author of the Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia and the definitive Wines of Alsace reference book. Tom will be writing an exclusive column for us, on fizz of course, but much more too, adding features and wine recommendations in his own corner of wine-pages.
