Curious Wines: Best eCommerce Website 2009 (IWA)

Eight months on from picking up Ireland’s Best Commercial Website at the Digital Media awards, Curious Wines is at it again, picking up Best eCommerce/Services Website at the Irish Web Awards. Curious Mike, his lovely wife, Curious Mary, and the very talented Sabrina Dent, made the trip north to Dublin’s Radisson SAS for Ireland’s most prestigious web awards ceremony.

We faced some stiff competition (sincerest congrats to all those shortlisted), but we managed to walk away trophy in hand, with a real sense of pride and joy. As well as Sabrina, Mike and I must acknowledge the hard work of Katherine Nolan (@dochara), who does all the amazing stuff at the back-end that makes the site so easy to get around. So ladies, from the bottom of our hearts – thank you for making this site Ireland’s best wine website.

Other winners on our radar are regular contributors to this blog, Look and Taste, who picked up best videocaster. Sabrina’s husband won best new web application for Kildare Street, so well done to John, and to all the other entrants who are continuing to raise the bar in Ireland’s tech and service industries.

A final word of thanks to headline sponsors Realex Payments, Best eCommerce category sponsors CyberCom, and most of all the inimitable Damien Mulley who puts on the best (and dare we say it, most authentic) awards ceremony in the industry.

All winners on the night can be viewed here, and thanks to everyone on Twitter and Facebook for your warm congrats, we’re overwhelmed with the love!

Keep watching this space, as Ireland’s best wine website is about to get even better.


  1. Well done!

  2. Congratulation on your win.

  3. “…about to get even better…”!

    Would you ever pour yourselves a glass of something good and just rest on your laurels for a bit?

    I look forward to the promised improvements – though I can’t think for a minute of what there is to improve. Very well done to all concerned.

  4. Congratulations again gents.
    Sometimes awards are about who you know, or about campaigning. In this case the award is simply recognition of the best eCommerce Website on the market in Ireland today.
    It’s one I show people when I want them to see a fantastic online site.
    Congratulations to the whole team, and I look forward to seeing what the future brings the customer.
