Winner

Sassicaia

Shortlist

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia
Bodega Norton Porteno Malbec
Cloof Wine Estate The Very Sexy Shiraz

A new category this year, this award, and the one below it, were the only ones to be determined not by judges but by a computer. Presented by Josselin Guibert of virtual sommelier Wine Picker, the award analysed wine lists from over 500 restaurants and pubs in the capital to find those with the strongest foothold in the London trade.

The winner here, Tenuta San Guido’s acclaimed Sassicaia, is distributed in over three times more London establishments than its nearest competitor and is listed by almost a quarter of restaurants analysed.

Collecting the award was Nicolas Clerc MS of Armit Wines.

Most distributed white wine, in association with Wine Picker

Winner

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc

Shortlist

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc
Quercus Pinot Bianco
Viña Morandé Reserva Coleccion Privada Sauvignon Blanc

With the wine wine category witnessing severe competition, with pubs proving key drivers, it was New Zealand and LVMH’s Cloudy Bay that came out on top.
