We are pleased to introduce the three distinguished personalities forming the core of our great jury for the Millésima Blog Awards 2018. This year’s jury comprises professionals from the world of wine, natives not only of France, but also of the USA.
A reminder of the three categories
- Wine & Food Award: This category will include content about the combination of wine and food.
- Wine & Travel Award: Articles in this category will discuss a specific winery, interesting wine travel experiences or discoveries in winegrowing.
- Wine Reporter Award: This category is very open, with the only criterion being to report on wine. Articles will be judged according to writing style, originality and creativity.
The assessment criteria
- Remember that all articles must be written and submitted in English!
- The subject of your article must fit just one selected category.
- Therefore, the same article cannot be submitted for several categories.
- You may submit only one article per category, so a maximum of 3 articles per blogger.

All articles submitted for the Millesima Blog Awards will be pass before the attentive eyes of three experts from the world of wine, who will elect 18 finalists in the first round. We will reveal these finalists on January 15, 2018.
