Judging

Judges:
Rob Ballentyne M.W.
Simon Thorpe M.W.
Simon Awdry

The comment of the judges was that the standard of wines was good, with 35 wines (listed above) receiving an award. They also said that the standard of red wines was exceptionally high. Congratulations are due to Nicola and Robb Merchant for producing the champion wine in the Welsh Wine Competition and to Ryan Davies for the best wine in the Welsh Open Championship. We hope to see wines from all these (and many more if the weather holds up!) next year.
