A Cause for Celebration – Decanter Retailer Awards 2017

19 September 2017 by Alex


We are extremely proud to announce that The Good Wine Shop is the winner of Decanter magazine’s award for Champagne Retailer of the year 2017.

Decanter’s annual Retailer Awards aim ‘to celebrate and champion the very best wine retailers out there, rewarding imagination, drive, creativity, energy, evangelism’. We have worked extremely hard over the last two years to create a lovingly curated range of Champagnes and have championed the many great growers in the region via our yearly Grower Champagne Month initiative in June. It was fantastic to receive the judges’ recognition for this, in their own words:


‘This is a shop worth travelling to, building a name for its exciting and competitively priced range with an emphasis on grower Champagnes’
