Tanners Wines, which has branches in Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury, took home the prize for Best National Wine Shops of 2018 at this year’s Decanter Retailer Awards, hosted in September in London.
The prestigious annual awards recognise the UK’s top talent in wine retailing. Tanners has picked up their highly-esteemed awards in previous years, including being named Outstanding Retailer of the Year in 2016, and was awarded this year’s accolade as a result of its winning combination of value, service, range, quality and innovation.
The judges also commended Tanners’ online approach and their subscription wine club – Wine in Time – which scooped the runner up prize in its category. Chair James Tanner was delighted with the result, saying, “My sincere thanks go to everyone at Tanners for their efforts in securing these accolades. It’s very much a team effort! Thanks also to our customers for their tremendous support – we hope to continue to delight them.”
