Wine List Confidential Awards 2019: Profiling the winners

Most distributed red wine, in association with Wine Picker




Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia
Bodega Norton Porteno Malbec
Cloof Wine Estate The Very Sexy Shiraz

A new category this year, this award, and the one below it, were the only ones to be determined not by judges but by a computer. Presented by Josselin Guibert of virtual sommelier Wine Picker, the award analysed wine lists from over 500 restaurants and pubs in the capital to find those with the strongest foothold in the London trade.

The winner here, Tenuta San Guido’s acclaimed Sassicaia, is distributed in over three times more London establishments than its nearest competitor and is listed by almost a quarter of restaurants analysed.

Collecting the award was Nicolas Clerc MS of Armit Wines.
