Wine List Confidential Awards 2019: Profiling the winners

Best Value List

Winner 

Rex Whistler

Moving onto the awards based on the scores determined by this year’s Wine List Confidential guide, we have the first category of best value. ‘Value’ is a very important aspect to the Wine List Confidential ratings systems that focuses on the pricing of drinks. It doesn’t mean that the wines have to be cheap, but they must offer a fair price relative to the quality of the dining environment, and the outlet’s competitors.

Rex Whistler was praised for showcasing wine producers at the top of their game at arrestingly good prices. Indeed, such is the appeal of its brilliant range, which includes an unrivalled selection of half bottles, it basically says ‘Drink Me’.
