Another judging day has come and gone. Almost 700 wines have been put through their paces by a team of 21 independent wine merchants and soon our Wine Merchant Top 100 winners will be announced.
This year’s judges came from as far afield as Orkney, Manchester, south Wales and the Isle of Wight. Between them they represent a pretty good cross section of the independent wine trade.
We worked them hard, and there were some tough decisions to be made. And we’re confident that the wines that they enjoyed the most – whether they turn out to be Top 100 winners or the Highly Commended wines that just missed the cut – will make for interesting tasting on our stand at the London Wine Fair.
We’ll unveil the winners on May 21. Watch this space!
