The winners of Business Traveller’s annual Cellars in the Sky awards were announced on Monday. Rob selflessly agreed to go along to test out the winning entries.
The awards are a very well run event, with the winners chosen by a group of Masters of Wine including Tim Atkin and Charles Metcalfe. The blind testing involved more than 250 different bottles of wine.
