UK: Hotel TerraVina, the boutique wine hotel founded by World Champion sommelier Gerard Basset, has won two awards in the last month.

The New Forest property picked up Best Drinks Offering in a Hotel beating The Dorchester and The Connaught at the inaugural Harpers Awards held at the London International Wine Fair earlier.

And Gerard's wife and TerraVina co-founder Nina Basset was presented with the Condor Lifetime Achievement in Business prize at the Venus Awards recognising businesswomen in the south-west of the UK.

The awards come shortly after Hotel TerraVina announced its amalgamation with the 10 in 8 fine dining group. The merger has led to the announcement of a "world class cookery and wine school" jointly led by Michelin star chef Alan Murchison and Gerard Basset.

The group has also announced it has entered into a joint venture with Macdonald Hotels to operate the restaurant at The Bear Hotel in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, close to Blenheim Palace.

Nina Basset said: "This has been an extraordinary few weeks of exciting announcements that will cement TerraVina's reputation as one of the UK's leading destinations for food and wine lovers. 2012 is shaping up to be a momentous year and we are relishing the challenges ahead."
