The winner of the Independent Retailer of the Year category announced
G. Wienholt Bakery, Alderley Edge
George Wienholt was son of a baking family who could trace their lineage back to a young confectioner Ferdinand Wienholdt who came over from Germany in the 1860s. George set up his bakery in Alderley Edge and the ethos is quality ingredients and products never less than perfect. There are cakes, patisserie and savouries including a steak pie made just as George decreed.
Burwardsley Village Store
A vital element in a village which, unlike many, still has a shop, a pub and a church, Burwardsley Village Store sells products including cheese made in the village, Cheshire Farm Ice Cream, Tiresford Yogurt from Tarporley and breads from Swiss Chalet Bakery in Ellesmere Port. Phillip and Rachel Warner-Smith describe the shop as a hub of the community.
Define Food & Wine, Northwich
Stocking an array of artisan products to draw in the region’s discerning wine-lovers, this wine merchant also supplies pubs and restaurants, London food halls and Michelin-starred restaurants. There is also a wine school (who says learning can’t be fun?), a deli offering cheese, charcuterie and pâtés and a dining area with French pastries, tapas and other small plates.
