The Wine Pantry in London’s Borough market has carved out an unique place within the English and Welsh wine industry as a showcase in arguably the most important UK market.
Now, owner and founder Julia Stafford has rightly garnered one of the most prestigious awards in the industry, becoming Wine Merchant of the Year at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2012.
She says: “Since the Wine Pantry opened in May last year, we have been through some truly unforgettable times. There have been wonderful experiences, like winning Smarta 100 and Shell LiveWIRE awards last year, hiring the whole of the Jubilee Market for a Diamond Jubilee English wine festival, and the everyday satisfaction of a job well done – when a new customer’s scepticism melts away upon their first taste of English wine.”
