After a long day tasting wine, there is nothing better than an ice-cold beer. Fortunately Pizarro's is only a short stroll down the road from the office so we didn't have to wait that long to quench our thirst. Shortly after we were back on the wine that was left over from the tasting.

We are really pleased to announce in the International Wine Challenge Merchant Awards shortlist, Bancroft Wines was listed in the On-trade supplier of the year Category. We had tough competition so this year we didn't win, but we are already looking forward to next year's awards! We would like to thank all our staff for their hard work over the last year and also of course to our producers and customers for their unwavering support.
