Darrel Joseph is a judge at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).

Darrel Joseph

Darrel Joseph is based in Vienna and began writing about the wines of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe in 1995, after his palate was captured by Hungarian Tokaji and Austrian Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. Since then his specialisation broadened to include Croatia, Slovenia and all Balkan wine countries, plus Georgia and Russia, as well as the aforementioned Austria and Hungary.

Joseph’s writing has appeared in Decanter, Wine Spectator, Meininger’s Wine Business International, Harpers Wine & Spirit and Wine Searcher.com. He has also contributed to Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book and Gault & Millau (Austria).

When he’s not writing, Joseph conducts wine tastings and seminars internationally, and translates a wide range of wine texts from German to English. He is currently writing a book on Tokaji.

Darrel Joseph was first a judge at the DWWA in 2007.
