Today (23.05.13) Jascots has been shortlisted for the ‘National Wine Retailer of the Year’ category in the 2013 Decanter Retailer of the Year Awards.’ Decanter Magazine said, “A huge number of nominations were received for retailers in each of the five different categories. Earlier this month our panel of judges gathered to evaluate each retailer at length against an initial set of criteria and compile this year’s shortlist. The other national wine retailers that made it into the shortlist are: Majestic, Wine Society, WineTrust100 and Berry Bros & Rudd.”
The Judges are: Peter Richards MW – Panel Chair, Wine Expert, Saturday Kitchen; Tom Cannavan, Publisher/Editor www.wine-pages.com; Fiona Beckett Contributing Editor, Decanter, Wine Columnist, the Guardian; Anthony Rose, Wine Columnist, The Independent; Allan Cheesman, Industry Consultant.
Since the initial call for nominations in April, the panel has convened to prepare a shortlist. Each shortlisted retailer is being asked for detailed information on their performance over the last year in order for the panel to reach its final verdict. The panel will be judging on a range of criteria including quality, value, service, range, and in particular, innovation over the last year. Scores will be allocated accordingly and the retailer who scores the highest for overall performance will win.
