Some you win... (IWC Merchant awards)


#1

For info, here’s a full list of the category winners at the International Wine Challenge Merchant awards. The Society were multiple winners, but it was a good night too for Waitrose and Goedhuis, among others.


#2

Genuinely surprised by all the Waitrose wins.

My local one rented out what was the wine dept (complete with knowledgeable trained staff) to Laura Ashaley and now has a seriously crap range of mass produced rubbish. Even the tiny fine wine section has nothing particularly fine except for Musar. They do have a good range of champagne I guess but its cheaper via the society.

Congrats to the society for their wins. Some other good names on there too like Yapp and a few of the big importers with interesting portfolios.

My local independent wine shop won the the south west and national award. Dunells premier wines. Fair play to them


#4

IMO the South West winner La Vignoble isn’t even the best merchant in Bath!


#5

Your post and @NickFoster’s appeared to contradict but I think you meant South and South East for Dunells :wink:


#6

Aren’t these awards just made up?!


#7

You are right south and south east.


#8

In fairness to me I don’t see how Jersey is in the south east!
