Absolutely thrilled to have been presented with the Drinks Retailing Independent Wine Retailer of the Year 2020 award at the Drink Retailing Awards held at The Dorchester, London on 4th February 2020. The annual ceremony is designed to reward excellence in drinks retailing across a number of sectors, including supermarkets, wine merchants, independent specialists, convenience stores, online retailers and wholesalers.
To have scooped the IWC Small Merchant of the Year 2019 trophy and then to have won another prestigious national award in 2020 is just outstanding especially considering we live on a small island and the incredible standard of independent merchants throughout the whole of the UK. We are truly honoured to have been recognised in this way and is testament to our amazing team who work so incredibly hard to offer the best possible range of wines, beers and spirits combined with first-class service and atmosphere across three shops.
Drinks Retailing wrote: "Congratulations to the Pinel family, which operates three top-notch wine shops in Jersey. They all have a common visiual thread while retailing distinct personalities that suit diverse locations. They have all flourished in recent years and Dunell's fully deserves this coveted accolade."
Huge thanks to Drinks Retailing and also to Bancroft Wines who sponsored the award and gave us and the other 3 finalists in this category such a great evening!
