Simon Thomson, Owner and Director of Talking Wines in Cirencester, developed a love of wine during his travels when he was younger. He said it’s nice to be recognised for his hard work.

“We try to do a good job every single day for our customers and it’s feels good to be recognised for it. We are constantly working to improve our range and make the store the best it can be.

“A third party endorsement is always a nice thing. I don’t know what we’re doing to earn it but we’ll keep doing whatever it is that’s working.”

Voting closes at 12pm December 18 so make sure to back our local nominees.
