Last Monday evening, despite the bitter cold, hundreds queued outside the Baltic in Gateshead to hear in situ the announcement of this year’s Turner Prize winner. Levin Wines were the exclusive wines served during the event, so not only were we able to discover live who the winner was, we would be hearing the announcement Sauvignon Blanc in hand!
Our team was excited to see the crowd enjoying both our Sauvignon Blanc and Gamay, and Magnum were cracked open later on for their after party.
As the time approached, the guests crowded eagerly into the main room to hear Mario Testino announce: “Ladies and gentleman…the winner is: Martin Boyce!” So, let’s toast Mr. Boyce and raise our glass to him!
The Turner Prize is on for view until the 8 January so if you feel like you missed out, you can still enjoy the show and that glass of crisp Levin wines in their upstairs restaurant, Six.
