God’s own coun­try de­serves far bet­ter

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

IT was dis­ap­point­ing that the win­ner of the Award for North Eastern Wine Mer­chant of the Year came from Der­byshire, not York­shire.

I am sure that John Hat­ter­s­ley Wines won this ac­co­lade fair and square, beat­ing York­shire-based House of Tow­nend on this oc­ca­sion.

Tow­nend has won this award for the last three years, so per­haps it was time for some­one to knock them off that par­tic­u­lar pedestal but I was dis­ap­pointed that not one of our ter­rific smaller York­shire wine mer­chants was even short­listed.

Next year it would be good to see mer­chants such as Field & Fawcett, Hal­i­fax Wine Co., Harrogate Fine Wine, Bon Coeur or Roberts and Speight on that list.
