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.
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.
Elizabeth was helped by her son Ben, who gave a second opinion on the more obscure and complex wines, and by husband David Bernheim, who wrote the chapter on the business of rosé.
