Elizabeth Gabay MW

Elizabeth Gabay MW has been in the wine trade since 1986. She has written, lectured and taught about rosé wines extensively. She is president of the jury for the International Rosé Championship. a regular judge at Decanter’s annual World Wine Awards and The Drinks Business Rosé Masters, as well as at many other competitions and magazine panel tastings.

Elizabeth has spent years working with rosé wine. Since representing Provence vineyards in 1980s Britain,  she has travelled widely to meet producers of rosé wine, to taste their wines, discover their stories and find what makes theirs special. Her rosé-discovery journey has left no stone unturned, going as far as inspecting vines and blending wines – not all glossy holidaying!

Writing the book required tasting as many rosés as possible. Of course, the first was fun, the second was fun, the third was fun… The same could hardly be said when that number neared a thousand, tasting up to eighty in a day.
