Ben Robson, owner-founder of Bat and Bottle Wine Merchants, based at Oakham Enterprise Park, has been named the first ever winner of the UK 'Online Specialist Wine Buyer' award at this year's London Wine Fair.
The London Wine Fair is the largest wine event in the UK; it is a trade-only event held at Olympia.
This year, the fair was cancelled due to lockdown, however the organisers held the inaugural Wine Buyer Awards ceremony virtually.
This recognition is outstanding.
Rutland's own, 25-year-old, small family business is on the doorstep, and has been recognised nationally over all the other wine clubs, societies and huge, better known wine giants of the UK.
You can currently collect orders from the 'shop' - it is a wine warehouse - via a 'click and collect' service.

Call in advance on 01572 759735 if you would like to visit the warehouse as shopping is strictly on a one-in one-out basis.
And why not join the Bat and Bottle Wine Club, also recently shortlisted as a finalist by the IWC (Independent Wine Challenge)?
