Published:  10 September, 2020

Join us again today as we continue the countdown of our annual Harpers 50 Best Indies awards, which are announced throughout this week (7 to 11 September), culminating in a live webinar with the top 10 on Friday as the final results are announced. 

From Monday to Thursday from 11.30am onwards viewers can tune in to the 50 Best Indies results either on or via the below links as recorded results are revealed in tranches of 10 each day, building towards the final, much coveted top 10 places during a live webinar session on Friday 11 September, also at 11.30am

Today we reveal 20 to 11. You can find yesterday's 30 to 21 here, and 40 to 31 here, with the initial 50 to 41 available here (or below). 

During the final live session on Friday not only will we be announcing the order of the Top 10, but we’ll be asking each of these merchants to reveal a little of the personality and strategy behind the success of their business and welcome you to join us for that session. 

This much anticipated annual list showcases the best independent wine merchants in the UK and puts a spotlight on what they are doing to make their businesses stand out in this dynamic sector.

The judging for this year’s 50 Best Indies has taken place against the extraordinary backdrop of the pandemic, which has proved a catalyst for unprecedented innovation and adaptation across the sector – reflected in the results of this list championing the best in the business through 2020.

Registration is open for the Friday 50 Best Indies top 10 webinar and you can secure your place in the virtual audience at 11.30am on Friday 11 September by clicking though here.
