This year Wine & Spirits magazine has launched their first ever the Drinking Out Excellence Awards – “an awards programme to celebrate achievement and honour establishments and professionals in the UK’s dynamic on-trade”.
Last Tuesday night, Brett and Charlie headed to the awards ceremony, where Vinoteca was on the shortlist for ‘Wine Bar of the Year’ along with three other fine establishments dotted throughout England and Scotland – Green and Blue, East Dulwich, InVino Veritas, Brighton, Le Di Vin, Edinburgh.
We are happy to announce that all of our hard work at Vinoteca has been recognised, and we have been awarded ‘Wine Bar of the Year’!
If you can’t make it down to Vinoteca to check out our award, then no worries, because I took the time to have a little photo shoot with our trophy, which was a challenge, but quite amusing. On top of being ‘Wine Bar of the Year’ we also have a new item kicking around for Brett to “polish to a high luster”. Who by the way was the runner up for ‘Wine Personality of the Year’.
