The “Gold Star Awards” 2014-2015 Collection is a selection of wines especially chosen by wine experts in the National Off-Licence Association and independent wine writers, Leslie Williams and Liam Campbell, which will be exclusively marketed by off-licences which are members of the Association.
The “Wine of the Year” is the individual wine chosen from the 15 category Award winners as being the most outstanding wine choice for 2014-2015 in any National Off-Licence Association outlet. Points were awarded on the basis of appearance, smell, taste and value for money criteria and the winning 15 were selected as the best wines, from the key suppliers.
