Decanter World Wine Awards event
Now in its 18th year, the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most influential wine competition, with unrivalled global reach.
DWWA has judges from around the world, including Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers, and many of them are the foremost experts in their field. Judging is organised into categories, initially based on region.
The judges taste wines individually. They know the region, style and price bracket, but they don’t know who produced the wine or the brand name. They then compare notes on the wine and reach a consensus on each wine’s medal.
Medal categories correspond to the 100-point scoring system used by Decanter and many top wine critics around the world.
