We are absolutely over the moon and back to have been awarded 'Winery of the Year' at the WineGB Awards 2018, as well as 'Most Outstanding Blanc de Noirs', 'Top Sparkling Wine 2018' and 'Supreme Champion 2018' for our Wiston Estate Blanc de Noirs 2010 (our first ever release of a vintage Blanc de Noirs!).
The WineGB Awards are a national competition for all English and Welsh Still and Sparkling Wines, developed to shout about the successes this industry is achieving. Chaired by Oz Clarke and Susie Barrie MW, the judging panel comprises some of the most respected and celebrated of the wine world including wine merchants, supermarket and restaurant buyers, broadcasters and other experts. For us, this is an incredibly important competition to be part of as it focuses on UK wine producers with 230 different wine entries this year alone. The ceremony took place on Monday 16th July at the stunning Hotel du Vin Wimbledon and was sponsored by Country Life Magazine and Waitrose, as well as Hotel du Vin.
We are so very proud of our team at Wiston Estate for their passion, enthusiasm, expertise and hard work which has lead to this result and are looking forward to celebrating with a glass (or two) of our sparkling wines!
