The Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most prestigious wine competition and is respected internationally as an unrivalled source of wine recommendations. Now in its 12th year, the 2015 edition saw 15,928 wines from 48 countries tasted by 240 of the world’s wine experts, including 85 Masters of Wine and 23 Master Sommeliers.
All of the wines are blind tasted and organised by country, region, colour, grape, style, vintage and price to ensure the best possible tasting environment. Wines deemed eligible for an award can be given a commended, bronze, silver, or gold award. The very best of the golds within a region go on to win Regional Trophies and the very best of the Regional Trophies are tasted against other Regional Trophies from around the world to determine the International Trophies – the best of the best.
Each wine is judged individually by a panel of 3-4 judges. Notes are then compared to collectively agree on a medal (commended, bronze, silver, or gold) or no medal. Each silver and gold wine is then re-tasted by the Regional Chairs to ensure consistency across the panel.
There is no upper or lower limit on the number of medals that should be given, so each wine is considered on its own merits.
