Twelve make The Wine Merchant Top 100

The Wine Merchant Magazine Top 100 list is out and we are delighted that 12 wines from our portfolio have made the cut, with a further eight being Highly Commended. Judged by a panel of independent merchants, the wines must both fit strict criteria and stand out from the crowd. Not available in supermarkets or specialist chains, they are assessed not only on their absolute quality, but also on their value for money and saleability.
