Taking advantage of award winning wines
Stocking an award winning wine, gives you not only a great selling point, but also strengthens your wine credentials. It’s estimated that when choosing wines in the On-Trade, 1 in 5 consumers are highly influenced by award winning accolades and we believe it’s a must to include these on your menus.
Bolster your wine credentials by showcasing award winning wines not just on your menu but also on blackboards or as a seasonal special. Our Design Studio team based in Bristol would be happy to provide advice and layout ideas to optimise the space used on your menus and discuss ideas for advertising seasonal wines in order to maximise sales.

We are immensely proud of the results our wines have achieved this year and would like to say a special thanks to our wine buying team who have searched the globe to find the very best wines for our list. Keep up the good work!
