7th November, 2017: Condé Nast Johansens is delighted to announce the winners of the Champagne Taittinger UK Wine List Awards 2018. The winners were revealed at a dinner last night celebrating the 36th annual Johansens Awards for Excellence Dinner held at The May Fair Hotel, London.
The Wine List Awards were revised this year to find winners of the following categories: Best Value for Money, Best Wine by the Glass, and Most Innovative Wine List. A number of special commendations were also awarded.
THE WINNER OF THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY LIST IN THE CONDÉ NAST JOHANSENS CHAMPAGNE TAITTINGER WINE LIST AWARD 2018 is The Bell at Skenfrith, Monmouthshire, Wales.
Sarah Jane Evans commented – “This is a cracking list with a broad choice of international wines. Lots to choose from in the £20 – £30 bracket to satisfy the ‘I don’t like being ripped off’ guest. Nice selection of Welsh wines as well as lovely old cognacs for ‘next to nothing’ prices!” Particularly commented on and applauded by the judges is their “Push the Boat Out’ section packed with a wonderful choice to tempt the wine explorer in us all. We were blown away with the prices here too!”
