SWA 2019 Winners


Following being named the UK's Best Drinks Supplier, we're thrilled to have scooped the Classic Regions Merchant of the Year title at the 2019 Sommelier Wine Awards! It's a great privilege to receive this award and a testament to the inspiring producers we work with.

"We are extremely proud that Matthew Clark has won this new award as it justifies the work our wine buying team has done. We've added new exciting producers and wines to our classic regions portfolio while also working with our long-standing producers to ensure we have the best ranges available for the UK on-trade market", said Simon Jerrome, our Head of Wine Procurement.

The title capped off a Sommelier Wine Awards that delivered us a record number of medals and our highest ever number of gold medal wines. These cover a range of new and exciting wines, which our buyers have worked tirelessly to find, combined with old favourites from our trusted producers. All of this year's medal-winning wines are available to view in our latest wine list.
