Repeated Success for The WineBarn at the IWC Merchant Awards 2019


The WineBarn team (Iris, Angi, Chris & Kate) are delighted to have won the prestigious IWC Award 2019 for ‘Specialist Merchant of the Year for Germany’ for the fourth year running.

The IWC Merchant Awards celebrate the superior service offered to the UK wine consumer market by retailers large and small. Merchants are recognised for their exceptional wine portfolios, engaging events, outstanding customer service, enticing offers and inspiring business innovations.

Iris Ellmann, Managing Director of The WineBarn, said;
“We are absolutely thrilled to have received this award. It really is a great honour. I would like to thank our fantastic customers for their loyalty, winemakers for their devotion to their craft and the IWC for recognising the hard work our dedicated team have put in over the past 12 months - it means so much to us!”

Often referred to as the ‘Oscars of the Wine Trade’, the highly anticipated IWC awards night, was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London this week. The International Wine Challenge (IWC) was established in 1984 and, with it’s judging panel of international experts, has become one of the most respected wine competitions globally.

It is not just The WineBarn that has been recognised by critics this year, many of our wines have also impressed critics and consumers alike, receiving awards for their quality and distinction. To check out our award winning wines, click here.
