Sommelier Wine Awards 2020 Winners

The SWA winners, the best wines available to the hospitality sector!

The Sommelier Wine Awards is a wine competition with a difference. As the UK’s only on-trade wine competition, it focuses entirely on wines aimed at the on-trade. Wines with general distribution on the high street are not permitted to enter, except for sparkling and fortified wines, or merchants’ online-exclusive wines.

Since the competition started in 2007 it has grown to become the first point of reference for the UK’s on-trade wine buyers as well as the main competition for wines trying to increase their presence in hotels, pubs, bars and restaurants across the world.

The judges are carefully selected by us and include Master Sommeliers and Masters of Wine who all serve or buy wine for their venues in the on-trade, or are leading consultants developing wine lists.

We are delighted to reveal that a number of wines from our portfolio have earned a gold medal at the 2020 UK Sommelier Wine Awards!

The 2020 Gold Medal Winners Include:

· Flagstones Dragon Tree Cape Blend 2016
· St Hallett Eden Valley Riesling 2017
· Stonier Pinot Noir 2016
· Hardys HRB Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

The SWA is the country’s sole on-trade wine awards program, judging only wines that sell through the on-trade. The full list of winners is available on the Sommelier Awards Website
