We are the IWC 2017 Northern England Regional Merchant of the Year!

Last Thursday Stu, our Head of Private Sales and Hannah, our Online Marketing Manager, were down in London for the International Wine Challenge 2017 Awards.

We are absolutely delighted that they came back to Yorkshire with the award for the Regional Merchant of the Year award for Northern England.

The International Wine & Spirit Competition was the first competition of its kind set up to find, promote and reward the world’s best wines, spirits and liqueurs. What sets the IWSC apart is the formidable reputation of its judging process. In a pursuit for excellence, their panels of carefully selected industry experts comprises of Masters of Wine, buyers, sommeliers, WSET qualified educators and respected wine journalists. Every single wine or merchant is assessed on its own merits within the context of its class. Currently receiving entries from around 90 countries, the IWSC is truly international in its reach and recognition. Established in 1969 and with 47 years of heritage, an IWSC Award is recognised internationally as a badge of quality - winning a medal at the International Wine Challenge is a significant achievement and one that we’re thrilled to have received!

We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and producers for their continuing support.

Cheers from the House of Townend team!
