AN award-winning wine business has been shortlisted for yet another prestigious title.

Barrica Wines, based at Huntley’s farm in Samlesbury, was nominated for The Summit Awards ‘Champagne Retailer of the Year 2011.’

Owner Jane Cuthbertson, who set up the business and shop in 2006, has already won the ‘UK Independent Wine Retailer of the Year Award’ last year, and was a finalist in the ‘New Zealand Wine Independent Wine Retailer of the Year’ for Barrica Wines in 2009.

The company was part of a short list of just three retailers for the most recent award, and all nominations were exclusively chosen by industry experts.

Jane said: “Unfortunately we didn’t win this time, but it was fantastic to be nominated and was such a shock.”
