Submit your wines

The deadline for entry for the Champagne category is: Friday 24 June, 2022. (extended)

Champagne has recovered quickly from Covid, and is ready for a bumper year in the UK on-trade. But competition is fierce, and it’s harder than ever to attract a sommelier’s attention. 

The Sommelier Collective’s Champagne Awards will be the most focused on-trade tasting of Champagnes in the UK. We’ll have teams of top sommeliers tasting and scoring all the wines from a hospitality perspective, looking for value, character and typicity – but also for the best wines to use for By The Glass, Group Dining or in a Preservation System. 

It’s a tasting that’s totally tailored to the needs of the on-trade, and if hospitality is important to your business then you need to be a part of it.

Complete this form for each wine you are entering. If you are entering multiple wines you can email us for an Excel file to complete.




Payment is required in full within 5-7 working days.

Cost £99 per wine (excluding 20% VAT, where applicable)
