Open for business!

The 2016 Wine Merchant Top 100 competition is officially under way.

Once again we’re inviting suppliers of wines aimed solely at independent retailers to submit entries – and once again we’ve held fees at £70 per wine.

This is a competition with two major points of difference. As well as being the only competition devoted entirely to wines in the independent sector – a marketplace involving nearly 800 shops, worth in excess of £500m – it’s also judged entirely by independent merchants themselves.

The deadline for entries is March 15 2016, with judging taking place in London a couple of weeks later.

Again, all our winning wines will be showcased over three days on our free-pour stand at the London Wine Fair. They will also be featured in a special supplement sent out to all Wine Merchant readers.

See the links to the left for all the information you need, and for the entry form.
