The Independent Retailer of the Year Award recognises the best of the independently owned and run merchants with the judges looking for impeccable customer service and business innovation. The awards are presented annually at the London International Wine Fair.
Roberson Wine (http://www.robersonwine.com) were thrilled to be named ‘Independent Retailer of the Year’ at the 10th annual Drinks Business awards.
The judges praised Roberson for its ‘Wine School’ which comprises a well-written online course, as well as its Wine Club and series of impressive tastings, along with its comprehensive and beautifully presented entry.
One of the judges remarked; "There are retailers addressing the bottom and very top of the market, but the middle is particularly difficult, because you need dedication and faith to capture that elusive consumer who buys wine between £15 and £50 a bottle – and Roberson has that dedication and faith."
Roberson’s founder and managing director was also mentioned, with one judge commenting; "Cliff Roberson is the kind of person the wine business could do with more of."
After receiving the award, Roberson’s Senior Buyer Mark Andrew said, "The independent merchant scene is full of fantastic retailers, so it means a lot to us to win this. At Roberson we are not only about selling brilliant wines, but about inspiring people to care more about what they drink. It’s fantastic to have that commitment recognised."
