Is Vineyards the single site retailer of the year?


Old Yarn Mills-based Vineyards wine shop has earned recognition from the prestigious International Wine Challenge (IWC), landing a spot in the finals for this year’s Single Site Retailer of the Year in the Merchant Awards. This international honour follows closely on their recent victory at the Drinks Retailing Awards.
The IWC Industry Awards, established in 1991, exist to acknowledge and celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of the UK wine industry.
When the 2023 finalists were announce, the IWC were proud to state that ‘only the most outstanding businesses have been shortlisted for an award this year!’
Vineyards is in esteemed company in this year’s awards, with other finalists including renowned houshold brand names such as Naked Wines, Waitrose and Majestic.
Making it to the finals of one of the global wine industry’s most respected awards is a particularly notable accomplishment for Vineyards. The family-run enterprise has been committed to ‘sourcing and storytelling’ outstanding wines since 2005. The team, led by Hannah Wilkins, her wife and business partner Sadie, along with their trusted crew of wine connoisseurs, deliver an extensive selection, are renowned for their bespoke personal service, and for generating a real sense of community. They host regular tasting evenings and workshops, cementing their position as a favorite local hub.
The awards ceremony is scheduled for July 4th, set to unfold amidst the grandeur of London’s Hurlingham Club, and promises to be a remarkable occasion for the dedicated and passionate team at Vineyards.
