The annual Decanter Retailer Awards aim to offer wine drinkers in the UK an indispensable guide to the best wine shops and wine lists on the high street.

There are several categories designed to award big supermarkets as well as niche and independent retailers.

‘Things are changing fast in British retail, and win is no exception,’ says Peter Richards MW, chairman of the Decanter Retailer Awards.

‘The aim of these awards is to celebrate and champion the very best wine retailers out there, rewarding imagination, drive, creativity, energy, evangelism – and even hedonism. After all, one of the primary duties of wine is to be fun.’
