Mirabeau wins another Silver at the highly respected IWSC.

Awards Press Media

We are chuffed to bits (is it OK to use that expression?) to announce that Mirabeau Rosé has won a Silver medal in the 2013 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC)! One of only two Provence rosés to receive a Silver (the highest award given in 2013) we were effectively 1st= in the whole competition!  

The results, announced at the London International Wine Fair on Monday 20th May, mark the 44th year of the Competition. Founded in 1969, the IWSC is considered to be the most prestigious competition of its kind in the world.

The awards given by the competition are believed to be among some of the highest honours in the industry. Judging for the Competition is unique in that it has two stages; first, the products are tasted blind by expert panels, selected from over 300 fully experienced and qualified industry judges. Then, products are subject to technical analysis before results are released; this crucial stage ensures winners receive complete validation.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
