Febvre Wine Company recorded an excellent result at the latest Irish Wine Show Awards. The group won Wine of the Year, Red Wine of the Year and  five Gold Awards among nine overall Star Awards 2017-2018. The ceremony was organised by the National Off-Licence Association (NOffLA)  and held in the Morrison Hotel, Dublin 1 on 9 October.

The Irish Wine Show ‘Star Awards’ collection is a selection of wines especially chosen by wine experts in the National Off-Licence Association and Independent wine writers.

“We are delighted with this tremendous success having been awarded Overall Wine of the Year; Red Wine of the Year and nine medals including five gold out of a grand total of 45,” said Liz Coogan, managing director of Febvre & Company.

“The fact that they are across different price points and represent wines from France, Spain, Austria, Romania, South Africa, New Zealand  and Chile shows the depth of our portfolio,” she added.

The winning wines will be easily identifiable on the shelf of independent off-licences nationwide as they display the NOffLA medals.  They represent great quality and value for money in their different categories.
