Decanter Retailer Awards announced the best UK wine retailers of 2019. See which 'specialist' winners and runners-up you should visit this holiday season.

The Decanter Retailer Awards aims to offer wine drinkers in the UK an indispensable guide to the best wine shops and wine lists on the high street, so what better time to have a browse than this holiday season?

From small wine merchants to local specialists, multi-stores and supermarkets, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to wine retail. But then there’s choosing… Which wine should I take to a dinner party? Which wine should I gift? What’s the best Champagne to ring in the New Year? It seems there’s no better time than now to highlight this year’s top UK Specialist Retailers.

Head to these award-winning retailers for specialist wine selections, top service and helpful gifting advice.

How the winners were chosen: Results were determined by our expert judging panel who made their way through over one hundred entries, assessing, visiting, tasting, scoring and re-scoring before narrowing down entries to support, award and encourage those doing a brilliant job.

Sweet & Fortified Specialist of the Year: Oxford Wine Company

Runner-up: Waitrose

A large and growing range, plus an obvious commitment to communicating and sampling the delights of its sweet and fortified selection won it for TOWC. This family-run merchant allies the best of a traditional merchant with social media initiatives like videos marrying en rama Sherry with different foods. Waitrose’s range in this category is outstanding.
