It’s my job to co-ordinate and share our awards successes, so June and July have been busy months for me. Our own-brand products have won a host of fantastic awards; from wine to cheese and then onto summer party food, it’s great to see our commitment to creating quality products really paying off.

International Wine Challenge Merchant Awards 2018

We’re excited to have been named Convenience Store Chain of the Year for the third year running. Our wines have been getting great reviews from critics, so it’s amazing to yet again be acknowledged as the best for wine on the high street.

Sparkling Wine and Champagne Awards

With our champagne winning Silver at these awards, we’ll be using this to toast all our superstar products. We’re the only supermarket to win an award for our champagne, and with the other winners costing up to 2000% more than our Pionniers NV Champagne Brut, we’re proud to offer quality at such amazing value.
