For the 2nd year running, we scooped the President’s trophy for the ‘Best Classic Cuvée NV’ at the Wine GB Awards, the highly regarded championships for the industry. Andrew Wilson of WBC Packaging who sponsor the awards, came to present us with the Trophy. Each year Wine GB hosts a blind tasting to find the best wines produced on British soil. Some 300 wine producers enter wines that go through a rigorous tasting process by the highest calibre of judges such as Oz Clarke, Susie Barrie MW, Saturday kitchen’s wine expert Helen Mcginn, Rebecca Palmer, wine buyer of Corney & Barrow and Elizabeth Kelly, wine buyer of Majestic.
Not only that, Oz Clarke was kind enough to add his thoughts on us too. Susie Barrie, Master of Wine and judge, talked of the brilliance of the Wines being produced in the UK. “2021 has been a great year for the Wine GB Awards and undoubtedly our best yet. These awards shine a light on the very best still and sparkling wines the UK has to offer and it’s wonderful to bear witness to an industry that is now consistently producing wines that really are world-class. Not only that, the range and variety of wines just keep on getting better.” To come top of that chart is definitely a reason to celebrate! Cheers
