Awards… Awards

The Drinks Retailing Awards are among the trade's biggest highlights, bringing together the leading lights in retail. Not only is the judging process one of the most rigorous and thorough of all the industry awards, but they are also unique in covering the entire breadth of the take-home market, striving to reflect excellence in as many areas of the trade as possible.

That is why we were really excited to have been short listed in the top 3 for Best New Comer 2014 across the UK. We were interviewed at the shop for a couple of hours, so that they could find out more information on how we worked and what our future plans were in progressing.

The award night arrived on Tuesday 4th February which took place at The Dorchester Hotel London, for me this was an exciting experience, any excuse to get a new posh frock!

Being a drinks industry award ceremony you can imagine there was plenty to choose in the way of beverages, as each sponsor hosted a bar at the event or their wine was chosen for the table. I found myself attracted to the cocktails.

We met Chris and Kay who are the owners of  Green Valley Cyder Farm in Exeter who were up for the award Best Independent Cider Retailer. Not only do they sell a wide range of ciders they also make cider and apple juice that people can come along and watch how the process is done.

Karen Christian was also attending the event who was a fellow Diploma student and is a wine writer, it was great to see a friendly face.

At 7.45 we were ushered in to the ballroom to take our seats for dinner.. Find out what happened here

Lets Celebrate

To celebrate a week of awards and Valentines on the approach we would like to offer you Aldwick Court Farm Sparkling Wine at £17.99 rather than the usual £20.50.

Made at the foot of the Mendips from a blend of seyval blanc and pinot noir.  The Pinot Noir gives it that beautiful blush colour and a taste that is fresh and lively. Ageing on lees gives delicate brioche notes.

Take advantage of this fantastic offer to celebrate with a local sparkling wine, offer ends 15th February.
