Decanter World Wine Awards, The DWWA Judges Specials Specials

David Motion, judge on the DWWA Germany panel in 2010

David Motion describes himself as ‘wine merchant, composer and Riesling revolutionary’. After several years in the music business, firstly as a record producer, then as composer for the movie Orlando and numerous commercials, David Motion bought The Winery in 1996, the independent wine shop based in a former Victorian apothecary in west London, which Motion claims has ‘the widest selection of new-wave, dry German wines in the UK’. In addition to his Riesling ‘missionary work’, he is also a keen advocate of the Lunar Calendar. He continues to juggle parallel careers in wine and music.
