The win follows the wine brand's growing popularity and US market launch.
ThinK J Wines' Prosecco and Pinot Grigio Sparkling Rose have proved popular in California, New York, New Jersey and Florida.
On home turf, the business has also experienced rapid growth, with heaps of positive reviews and almost 20k followers on Instagram. ThinK has also on-boarded with Thomas Ridley for distribution.
This month, it bagged two silver awards at the prestigious international Glass of Bubbly awards.
The Glass of Bubbly Awards is a world-renowned annual awards ceremony, judged by 50 top wine professionals from around the world.
There were 17 categories, with ThinK claiming victory by winning silver in two of them; First Date and Spring Fling.
The criteria for First Date was defined as "the perfect wine to accompany that first date. Nothing too complex and not necessarily a wine that needs to pair with exact foods". ThinK PinK Pinot Grigio Sparkling Rose won silver in this category.
ThinK Prosecco also won the silver award in the Spring Fling category, which required "a floral driven wine that expresses flowers from cherry blossom to rose petals. Imagine yourself walking into your local florist".
Founder Katherine saw a gap in the market for a healthier wine option, which led her to create the ThinK Wine Group in the summer of 2019.
After multiple trips to Italy and a lot of fine tuning, a vegan, organic, reduced calorie Prosecco and Pinot Grigio Sparkling Rose were created and ready for sale.
Katherine said: "This year has been full of surprises and incredible opportunities for ThinK. We celebrated our second birthday this summer with the launch of our ThinK Miniatures, and I have been overwhelmed with the response we have had since launching in America."
ThinK boasts a continually growing online following and is stocked in many up-market venues throughout the UK, managing to survive and thrive in the midst of a global pandemic.
