Decanter, the well known UK based wine magazine, recently announced its winners of their annual Wine Retail Awards for 2015.
The awards aim to offer the UK wine drinker guidance on those wine retailers who, in the view of Decanter judges, show imagination, drive and evangelism across key categories ranging from high street supermarkets to specialist retailers.
There were some new names on the winners podium this year with Asda winning best supermarket, usurping the multiple winning M&S who took second place.
The Wine Society was a worthy repeat winner of the National Retailer of the Year (we are big fans) with Oddbins coming second.
Other notables were Uncorked of London taking the award for Small Independent Retailer and the crowd funded and quite fabulous New Zealand Wine Cellar recently opened in Brixton winning the award for the best Specialist Retailer of Australian and New Zealand wines.
Congratulations to all the winners - we will look at a number of these in more detail in the near future.
