Producers are invited to submit their wines and provide us with the wine’s technical details, price and retail availability. Four bottles of each wine arrive at the Decanter warehouse and are logged, categorised, and coded according to country and region.

Organising wines for tasting

Wines are organised for tasting by country, region, colour, grape, style and vintage to ensure that wines are judged in flights against their peers:
