The International Wine Challenge Awards 2010 were held earlier this week at the Park Lane Hilton: Wow – what a night! We’re incredibly proud to announce that Majestic was awarded ‘Merchant of the Year’, the highest accolade amongst UK wine retailers. We also scooped the award for ‘High Street Chain of the Year’ for the sixth year running!
The judges for the 2010 awards were some of the industry’s best: IWC co-chairmen Tim Atkin MW, Sam Harrop MW, Charles Metcalfe and Derek Smedley MW were joined by Laura Jewell MW, Spar UK Ltd., Simon Thorpe MW, Negociants UK Ltd., David Cox, NZ Winegrowers and Rowan Gormley, Naked Wines.
All wine merchants were assessed on a number of criteria which included: Variety and quality of wine list, Customer service, On-line promotion, Innovation and future strategy as well as how the company has changed over the last 12 months.
So you can see why our 2 awards mean so much to us!
