WWA are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the Harpers “Best Distributor / Supplier to Independents” Award. WWA is only 6 years old and very small compared to its peers. For our business just to be in the presence of such prestigious fellow nominees is an honour and a testament to our hard working team.
The winner will be announced at a black tie event organised by Harpers on 22nd May. Just in case we don’t get to make the winner’s speech though, we would like to take the opportunity now to thank all of our customers and suppliers for their fantastic support, which has played an integral part in World Wine Agencies’ success.
Of course the judging has not been completed yet, so anyone who would like to add a last minute good word in for us, please comment below….!
