Morris, who specialises in Burgundy and Webb, who has worked for Sainsbury's, were both awarded the prestigious Chevalier title at a lunch on Feb 26.
The French Agricultural attaché, Cyril Portalez awarded the pair the l'Ordre du Merite Agricole at the event at Tom's Kitchen in London.
Also attending were 21 of the 39 current Chevaliers, such as lunch founders Harold Porter, formerly of Porter & Laker, and consultant Allan Cheesman.
Morris said he was "over the moon" to be given the accolade. "It's an honour, but it probably means more to the French than it does to anyone over here. I have spent my time promoting French wines, particularly those from Burgundy ."
The title was introduced by former agriculture minister Jules Méline as a way of honouring the efforts in French agriculture.
