Edward Dillon & Co. Ltd swept the boards at the 2012 Gold Star Awards, winning four out of the 15 award categories.
The awards were announced as part of the 11th Irish Wine Show, rebranded as the SIP Wine Show, held in Krystle Night Club on 26 September 2011. The event lived up to its billing as “a night not to be missed”. The evening kicked off with wine, beers and spirits tasting from 6pm, followed by a reception and the announcement of the Gold Star Awards at 9pm. Business completed, NOffLA members joined a late barbeque at 10pm, allowing an opportunity to celebrate the evening’s winners and a chance for NOffLA members to catch up with colleagues and suppliers.
Findlater Wine & Spirit Group picked up the much coveted ‘Wine of the Year 2011-2012’ award and Overall Award Winner, for J. Moreau & Fils Chablis 2010. The equally prestigious ‘Red Wine of the Year 2011-2012,’ award went to Gleeson incorporating Gilbeys for Marqués De Murrieta Reserva 2005.
