Press Awards 2020

By Aaron Keenan | Marketing Assistant

On Sunday Tomás Clancy published the results of the Business Post Gold Star Awards 2020.


We are thrilled to feature in three different categories and especially with retaining once again our first place as Best Multiple Wine Chain of the Year Award.


Here’s what Tomás had to say:


The award winner for best multiple wine chain is once again O’Briens Wines, a uniquely Irish institution that has been not just the first place of exploration for the vast majority of Irish wine loves, but also a virtual university of a huge proportion of the Irish Wine & Spirits Trade.”


A first for us, we are also very excited to be awarded the Wine and Spirit Personality of the Year 2020.


“Celebrating two decades of triumph, for reasons of excellence, ambition and impeccable taste, the Wine and Spirits Personality of the Year is multiplied into a group award for the entire staff, executives and owners of the dazzling heroic O’Briens Wines chain.”


In the sub-divided category for Best Specialist Drinks Outlet we came out on top for France, Spain and Best Tastings and Events.


On top of that we took 2nd place in Tomás Clancy’s Best Wine Website Award – congratulations to Mitchell & Son for coming in 1st place!

We also are proud to be named Wine Retailer of the Year 2019  by Matthew Nugent of The Irish Sun.


Here's what Matthew had to say:


"The largest family-owned drinks retailer in is very important in this thriving wine empire, with many of the 750 plus wines they directly import from some 180 family-run wineries across the globe. Delivering the best possible customer experience comes through enthusiastic shop staff who are delighted to share their knowledge and help customers find their perfect wine..."


You can best be assured that we will continue to search for exciting new wines, beers and spirits to add to our range and to offer the same great value!
