Award sponsored by Matthew Clark

About the award

Introduced in 1998, this award recognises and outstanding contribution to promoting wine understanding and appreciation. Nominees are judged on the quality of their wine list and their ability to inspire customers to make wider and more adventurous choices in selecting wines.



Joseph Radford, Director at Timberyard commented:
“We are very proud to be awarded this accolade, but the true winners are the growers and vignerons we work closely with. The real hard work takes place in the vineyards.”

An AA Inspector said of Timberyard:
“The Timberyard list is a brave one, that sets out to challenge and excite away from the main stream convention of most wine lists. It is deliberately quirky and obscure in equal measure and exclusively features European wines. It seeks out new and less established growers with a focus on natural wines from small artisan producers. Hence the list is packed full of interest and for most customers will offer wine choices that are both new and unknown.”
