Something to wine about

  • Comment

Herzog has form in being fussy about beverages. A few years back he attended the British Construction Industry Awards dinner at the Hilton, to pick up his Prime Minister’s Better Building Award for Tate Modern. He nearly brought the well-orchestrated dinner service to a halt by quizzing the waitress at length on the precise vintage of the wine she was serving. Asked whether he was excited about the prize, he opined that ‘Once you have won the Pritzker, nothing seems to count.’ It was nice that he could summon a little more enthusiasm for the Gold Medal.
