Olivia Mason

Awards Marketing Manager

Olivia Mason is the Awards Marketing Manager at Decanter, looking after Decanter World Wine Awards, Decanter Asia Wine Awards and Decanter Retailer Awards.

Olivia recently joined the Decanter marketing team after a stint in the spirits industry, but her background is in wine. She took multiple wine courses, worked at wineries and passed her Certified Sommelier exam in Sonoma, California, then went on to work winemaking vintages in California, Oregon, Australia and New Zealand, where she also wrote for online database Wine-Searcher.

Recently completing her WSET Level 3 Award in Wines, Olivia loves to continue learning about and tasting wine. After a recent trip to Sicily, her favourite grape variety at the moment is Nerello Mascalese.
