The line-up of sparking, sweet and fortified styles in our Wines of the Year 2020 tasting certainly didn’t disappoint.
Wines were nominated in three categories:
- Classic (a premium, textbook wine style);
- Offbeat (unusual grape, winemaking method, region or unearthed gem);
- Value (£25 or under).
The panel members, Andy Howard MW, Ronan Sayburn MS and Beth Willard, were not shown the prices of the wines at the time of tasting, nor the category in which the wines had been entered.
