A week of awards

Majestic's Chief Executive, Steve Lewis, accepts the award for High Street Chain of the Year at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2008It’s been quite a week for Majestic as we collected honours at both of the wine industry’s leading consumer awards events.

(I know what you’re thinking – not one but two black tie awards ceremonies to attend. How do we do it? It’s a tough old life in the wine trade sometimes…)

On Monday we scooped both the Specialist Wine Chain of the Year, and High Street Wine Chain of the Year at the Decanter World Wine Awards. The latter was voted for by Decanter readers, of which we are especially proud.

Majestic's Chief Executive, Steve Lewis, accepts the award for High Street Chain of the Year at the International Wine Challenge Awards 2008On Wednesday evening at the International Wine Challenge we were also named High Street Chain of the Year, for the fourth year in succession. We’re also really pleased to have been Highly Commended in the category Educator of the Year, and certainly the number of familiar faces at the dinner I recognised as former Majestic colleagues is testimony to how we have become the source for trained wine professionals in the UK.

There was also an impressive haul of medals at both events for Majestic’s wines, including the IWC Organic Trophy for our Matetic EQ Syrah. We’ll have all the medal winners on the website early next week.
