Biddenden is in the running for the Kent Juice Producer of the Year and Biddenden Ortega and Gribble Bridge Sparkling Wine are two out of the three finalists for the Kent Wine of the Year category.

Julian Barnes, Managing Director at Biddenden, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have reached the final for Produced in Kent’s Taste of Kent Awards, which truly showcase the very best of Kent’s food and drink industry. I would like to thank everyone who voted for us, your support and feedback is truly amazing. We are proud to be in the top three for two categories and honoured to have two of our wines listed in the Wine of the Year category, which we hope is a true reflection of our commitment in the local food and drink scene.”

Following the initial public vote, Biddenden and the two other finalists in the Wine of the Year and Juice Producer of the Year will be put forward to be judged by a separate panel. The winners will be unveiled at a gala dinner held at the Kent Event Centre on Thursday 9 March 2016.
