Our Awards

Title Underline

We’re not in the wine business primarily to win awards… but if any award does come our way it confirms we are doing our job in finding, sourcing and delivering the finest wines from around the world.

Wine Awards

Wines from the Hallgarten portfolio win many awards every year in all the major UK and international competitions, including the Sommelier Wine Awards, the Decanter World Wine Awards, The Wine Merchant Top 100, the International Wine Challenge and the International Wine & Spirit Competition.
