|In the world of fine wine, few names are held in as high regard as Steven Spurrier. He is the British wine authority who organized the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, which unexpectedly shattered the myth of French wine superiority and promoted the expansion of wine production in the new world. He is also the founder of the Academie du Vin and Christie’s Wine Course in addition to authoring and co-authoring over a dozen wine books.|
The SI team and its publishers feel very privileged to have an eminent wine personality such as Mr. Spurrier, who also has an abiding interest in India, on its Advisory Council. In one of the first ever expert tastings in India, Spurrier rated Indian white and red wines for Sommelier India earlier this year.
