Freddy and Janet Price’s book Riesling Renaissance won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for “The Best Book on Wine, Europe.” Freddy joined the wine trade in 1953 and married Janet in 1957. He became involved in most aspects of wine: buying, selling, marketing, lecturing, judging on tasting panels, writing about wines and leading tours around wine regions. In 1988 he set up an agency representing seven major estates in different regions of Germany. He also began to write regular articles for Decanter Magazine. Meanwhile, Janet had travelled solo to most of the wine-growing regions of the world, taking photographs to illustrate numerous wine books (including the Traveller’s Wine Guides) and magazines. Research for their book Riesling Renaissance (Mitchell Beazley, 2004) took them round all the relevant regions of Germany and Austria, Alsace, USA, Canada, Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. Freddy was also awarded Herkunft Deutschland from the President of the VDP (association of top German wine estates) for his writing on German wines.
