Entering its 3rd year of competition we can see that The Rothschild Rising Star Award is becoming a contest to be reckoned with. The interest increases every year and the competition develops further each year as well. We have seen that the competitors each year find the entire process extremely useful for their careers and makes them think outside the box. We have seen great career developments of those whom have taken part in the competition.
The final day will be on the 4th of July 2016 at Waddesdon Manor, home of the Rothschild family in the UK. Same as previous years the competition is sponsored by Waddesdon Wine, who are the representatives of Rothschild wines in the UK and have been a great support to the F&BMA since the start.
