At Bancroft Wines we pride ourselves on working with some of the creme-de-la-creme of producers from around the world. We know the hard work, sweat, tears and above all passion that goes into making these wines so when they win international awards we are even more proud to represent them, mostly exclusively, in the UK.

Here’s a round up of recent award-winning wines, from our equally award-winning producers:

Decanter World Wine Awards 2017

Platinum

Congratulations to Bouchon Family Wines for winning two Platinum medals this year. Unfortunately they were awarded for wines we do not currently have in stock… but watch this space! These two accolades make up many awarded to Bouchon wines this year, and is further testament to the incredible innovations the family team are making, forging out a path for a New Wave Chile movement. We are incredibly proud to be witness to this journey, and to represent their wonderful portfolio of wines in the UK.
