Of all the accolades picked up by When in Rome, scooping a Gold Medal at the London Wine Competition for our beautiful Nero d’Avola is the most exciting yet. This innovative event is judged by top UK sommeliers working for the Ritz, Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal, as well as by leading supermarket wine buyers. Uniquely, medals are awarded based on a combination of Quality, Value and Packaging.
Of the 350 wines selected for a medal, just 16 scored over 90 points out of 100, enough to win Gold. A quick Google of the full list of Gold medal winners shows what a posh bunch of wines our Nero box is rubbing shoulders with – most are around £30 for a single use bottle, compared to £25.99 for the three bottles’ worth of vino packed into our little box. Pick one up now at your local Waitrose or on waitrose.com.
