The Bottle Shop – the well known local off-licence in Penarth’s Station Approach – has been awarded the title of “Regional Merchant of the Year for Wales” by the International Wine Challenge .
The annual Wine Challenge Merchant Awards – now in their 33rd year – aim to “celebrate the most successful small and large businesses, who deliver an outstanding service to wine consumers across the UK”.
The awards are based on a retail offering of top quality wines coupled with a “commercially successful, viable, and proven business model.”
The Bottle Shop has outlets in both Cardiff and Penarth and says “2016 has been real point of change where our attitude, company culture and overall approach has further engaged with our customers the producers we represent and the wider industry. Through weekly tastings, regular events, and independent business collaborations we have put our all into this year.”
