AA Wine List of the Year Award 2015-16
A year after winning Wine List of the Year from The Good Food Guide, we are thrilled to announce The AA has awarded our list Wine List of the Year for England and Overall UK 2015-6. We attended a glitzy awards ceremony on Monday 5 October at The Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane and were presented with our award by Fiona Bruce of the BBC. A huge thanks to all our team who have contributed to the list over the years and our suppliers for all the support they give, to Hamish Anderson who set our list on this path many moons ago and continues to provide valuable insight. And to Craig Slocombe, one of our fantastic managers, who counts, orders, updates, prints and reprints the list and who is an unashamed Albarino fan!
Our list was chosen from over a 1000 entries with the judges highlighting:
‘A cracking list that offers superb value throughout with a great selection of wines by the glass and carafe. Its unconventional three-format approach was much admired – starting with the list in full, the food and wine section and finally the list presentation, again with full informative tasting notes. A super, quirky and highly personal list with great choices throughout, that simply does not fail to engage you. This list oozes personality and the diverse range of really interesting wines reflects the multi-supplier approach that this business adopts.’
