Hatch Mansfield would like to congratulate Vagabond Wines for winning the award for Large Independent of the Year at last night’s International Wine Challenge, the category sponsored by Hatch Mansfield.
Vagabond Wines was last year’s Small Independent Merchant of the year and has grown in the last 12 months to be a player in the Large Independent of the Year category. The judges said, “Vagabond wines has shown continued and sustained innovation. It is a very modern wine merchant that is using food and wine pairings, as well as a by-the-glass offer to attract a younger urban drinker. This is a place not only to go and buy wine, but also to sit down and eat with a great selection of wines to choose from.”
Comments Patrick McGrath MW, Managing Director of Hatch Mansfield, “This was a very well deserved win for Vagabond Wines. They are a great, progressive independent wine merchant with light airy sites, an interesting offering of wines which are also offered by the glass with a relevant food offering in an engaging way.”
The International Wine Challenge (IWC) owned by William Reed Business Media is now in its 33rd year and is accepted as the world's finest and most meticulously judged wine competition.
