The SWA 2017 Wines of the Year are... 

We were delighted to present our Wines of the Year trophies at Imbibe Live 2017. Our judges picked these six deserving winners from almost 3,000 entries received. 

After our 2017 winners had been decided, our senior judges gathered in the Eurocave Showroom for a morning of deliberating who our trophies should go to for each category. You can see all the photos from this here. 

Our Wines of the Year certainly reflected the overall results of the 2017 competition, which saw Greece give an astonishing performance. The Best in Show winner was Kir Yianni - see the tasting notes here

This year Italy dominated the medals count and this was true of our trophy winners too, with the country delivering three winners out of the six categories. The country won the House Wine of the Year (white), and both red and white Fine Wine's of the Year.
