A team of vineyard workers from Burgundy have swept the board at this year’s Music of Boozy Origin awards.
Pickaz With Attitude’s album ‘Straight Outta Corton’ scooped awards at the MOBOs for Best Album, Best Video and Best Pruning Technique.

The MOBOs recognise music from people working in the fields of wine, spirits, beer and cider and have launched the careers of, among others, Notorious IPA, Distillery’s Child and Oz Clarke.
