Glass of Bubbly Awards 2021
“I simply love the idea of categorising award winning wines in easy to understand descriptive names such as Sea Breeze and Fruity and Floral, this is a whole new way of judging wines.”
Ben Wyse of Gonzalez Byass UK
“Winning the title of The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly with the label that we represent, Champagne Deutz Blanc de Blancs 2010, we saw an immediate increase in the amount of interest and orders.”

A wine showing a timeless, refined and luxurious quality.
A wine that will have a herbaceous character from herbs to freshly cut grass.
The perfect wine to accompany that first date. Nothing too complex and not necessarily a wine that needs to pair with exact foods.

A complex wine that holds enough body to accompany fine cuisine.

Light & Fruity
A light and easy to drink wine with expressive fruity flavours.

Oaky & Toasty
This wine will express a smoky, toasty and/or oaky style character.
This wine will show a salty sea spray tasting experience just as if you were standing on the beach and admiring the waves.
