About the award

Introduced in 1998, this award recognises and outstanding contribution to promoting wine understanding and appreciation. Nominees are judged on the quality of their wine list and their ability to inspire customers to make wider and more adventurous choices in selecting wines.

The Vineyard, Stockcross, Berkshire

A truly stellar wine list that ranks as one of the best in the country. The investment, time, love and passion that have gone into this list really stand out. Impressively for a list of such epic stature, the judges felt it successfully strikes the balance of being serious while still accessible.

Wine judging observations:

They loved the wine journey index, over 50 wines by the glass, the dedicated vegan wine selection and the selection of everyday drinking wines under £30. Whether a novice or expert, one can’t help being inspired by this list.
