The WineBarn are delighted to announce that they have won 'Best German Specialist' at the Decanter Retailer Awards 2018 this month. Decanter magazine is the go to guide for the latest wine news, reviews, tasting tips and more. The Decanter awards are a celebration of the UK's very best wine retailers and their purpose is to help wine lovers discover the most delicious bottles available.
Decanter's prestigious awards night saw wine experts from supermarkets, independent retailers and merchants from across the UK gather at the OXO2 in London on Thursday 20th September. Attendees enjoyed a drinks reception followed by the awards ceremony.
Each entry is judged by a independent panel of experts who form their decision based on the quality, value, range, service, innovation and performance of the retailer over the past 12 months. The WineBarn has worked closely with the very best German winemakers to increase the range and quality of its portfolio this year and are thrilled to receive recognition of this.
Judges were particularly impressed with the The WineBarn's 'pioneering list' of wines, as well as the 'bespoke, personal service' offered by Managing Director Iris Ellmann.
Iris said, "We are extremely happy about this prestigious award and being recognised for our effort by the Decanter panel of judges. Our focus also lies on consumers who need to be given more of an opportunity to taste these wines outside of a restaurant environment. Hence we invested heavily in a new website, social media and most importantly, we are always available for personal advise."
