1. Brand Alignment with Decanter, the world’s leading wine media brand

We announce the shortlist, runners-up and winners on Decanter.com, publish the full results in the November issue of Decanter magazine and shout about it all over our social media platforms.

See what one of last year’s winners said…

“Many customers, and indeed potential customers, recognise the awards through their awareness of the Decanter brand and the esteem in which it’s held. In this way, having an award reassures existing customers that they are buying from a top retailer.

Hannah Schwarzer – Tanners Wines, National Wine Shop & Subscription Wine Club of the Year 2018
