Slow Food in the UK and Glass of Bubbly

We are delighted to be working alongside Slow Food in the UK with the latest addition to The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards in a trophy dedicated to wineries that are taking steps in order to protect our environment – the ‘Sustainability Trophy’.

Here wineries are invited to enter the awards where those adhering to select sustainability criteria can not only win themselves a medal within a relevant consumer friendly category (and a trophy for each category is also up for grabs at an awards dinner in Westminster, London October 24th), they can also be presented with the ‘Sustainability Trophy’ to applaud the best scoring wine from all entries.
