Crooked Fox Wins Gold Medal at Women’s Wine and Spirits Awards
Crooked Fox has just won one of the most important wine and spirits competitions in the world judged by women buyers – the Women’s Wine and Spirits Awards (WWSA). With women now buying 80 percent of wine, winning a Gold WWSA medal is highly impressive.
The WWSA judges were dazzled by the caliber of wines presented. Sara Rossi’s career spans Fera at Claridges, Gordon Ramsay’s Royal Hospital Road and the Dorchester Collection, where she was mentored by Vanessa Cinti, now head sommelier and wine buyer at Trinity London.
“I feel proud that I have been considered as one of the WWSA Judges for this year,” Rossi said. “I am delighted to give my thoughts about wine. I believe WWSA Results are a guarantee to the customer of a quality product.”
Held in London at the Royal Yacht Club, 100 of the world’s most influential female buyers assembled for the historic occasion. Wine buyers at top retailers, importers and hospitality entities including Waitrose & Partners, Bibendum, Enotria & Co, 67 Pall Mall and The Arts Club were ready for the blind tasting.
WWSA 2020 rated more than 1,000samples from 45 countries around the world. High profile entrants included Amazon UK, Concha y Toro, Dewars, Wakefield Taylors, Allegiance Wine and DFJ Vinhos.
