The award comes hot on the heels of JN Wine winning the "International Wine Challenge: Regional Merchant of the Year 2022", for the 28th time.

Statements By Founder

Founder James Nicholson said, "We are thrilled to win both of these awards and it was particularly pleasing to have the Decanter judges highlight our ethos of continual improvement as this is something which is very important to us.

"To win the 'Wine Merchant of the Year' award for the 28th time really underlines how we are always seeking to improve and provide a better service for our customers.


"We are in a period of expansion as we seek to scale our business by around 30% and a lot of our success is built upon the excellent customer service our team provides.

"I want to thank our team for embracing our ethos of continual improvement and living those values every day and also our customers for their loyal support over the years."

Nicholson added, "Our team has searched the globe for some of the best artisan and hand-crafted wines and spirits which have been sourced directly from the producers themselves.

"Delivery is available throughout the UK and Ireland, and you can also personalise your order further with a selection of gift boxes and packaging.

"You can choose from a selection of custom-made cases or from an excellent offering of port, gin and whiskey. It wouldn't be Christmas without bubbles and we are spreading the cheer with a wide selection of Champagne and sparkling wine."
