We were very proud to be voted 'On Trade Supplier of the Year' by a panel of judges from across the drinks industry at the 2012 Drinks Business Awards. The judges said
"When it comes to meeting the demanding needs of the on-trade, Enotria stood out for combining scale with attention to detail. The company's new, carefully tailored training booklet impressed the judges in particular, as did Enotria's relaunched website, which allows an online ordering service for the trade.
The high-quality list coupled with the option of a separate single bottle price showed that this is a company with the flexibility and range to meet the needs of a broad cross-section of the UK's on-trade venues. "

‘Enotria has a great Italian list which encompasses both big names and excellent value-for-money wines, with Piedmont a particular strength.’ Peter McCombie MW, Consultant

"Enotria has played an important role in improving our in-house wine training to all our team members. The subject of wine can be very daunting to anyone, and they have made it really simple and clear to understand for all. The change in attitude towards wine from our staff has been phenomenal. They are now more confident to talk to our guest about wine and which in return has an impact on service and our wine sales."
Janene Pretorius, Training Director, Prezzo
"Great wine, backed up with first class support and an understanding of our business is a winning combination. Enotria tick all these boxes and we have been delighted with the growth in our wine business since we started working with them."
