Majestic Wine Wins ‘High Street Chain of the Year’ Award


Adding to the strong momentum they’ve gained this year, Majestic Wine won the coveted ‘High Street Chain of the Year’ award during the recent International Wine Challenge (IWC) competition.

The largest specialist wine retailer in the United Kingdom last received the award in 2013.

But that wasn’t the only award Majestic Wine took home that night.

‘Best Value’ Wines

Majestic Wines Body 1Apart from being named the ‘High Street Chain’, Majestic Wines also won the ‘best value red between £7-£12’ award for their Definition Rioja Reserva. It has soft flavours of vanilla, blackcurrant, and toasted cedar and pairs quite nicely with assorted cheeses and grilled lamb.

The company also received the ‘great value champion white wine’ award for its exclusive Blind River Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. The said wine offers aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, which leads to intense flavours of melon and apple. It’s quite enjoyable with fresh seafood, feta cheese, or dressed mediterranean salads.

More Majestic Things to Offer

Of course, Majestic Wine has a lot more to offer to consumers besides the two listed above. That’s why we’ve compiled a short wine list from that help showcase why they deserved winning the award this year.
