Last night JancisRobinson.com was voted Wine Website of the Year 2010 in the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards.

The team at JancisRobinson.com are absolutely thrilled to have been voted International Wine Website of the Year 2010 in last night's Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards announced at the top of the bulbous skyscraper in the City of London known as The Gherkin. Very many thanks to the judges, the organisers, those who have already tweeted their congratulations and to you for your support and encouragement. It's great to have all the effort we put into www.JancisRobinson.com noticed and appreciated.

There was a very strong shortlist for this award, also featuring Tom Cannavan's www.wine-pages.com, Jamie Goode's www.wineanorak.com and Gabriella Opaz's www.catavino.net - all excellent online sources of wine information.

Many congratulations too to the other winners:
