Jason Millar is a judge at the 2024 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).

Jason Millar

Jason Millar is a freelance wine writer, consultant and judge, and experienced tasting presenter and communicator.

After reading English Literature at Oxford, Jason worked in publishing for five years before a compelling bottle of Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 2003 lured him into the wine business. A tasting specialist, he has presented over three hundred tastings on diverse themes, from the terroirs of Dönnhoff, via wine in literature, to blind tastings at large corporate events.

Jason was awarded the top honour of The Vintner’s Cup and The Vintner’s Scholarship for the highest aggregate mark across all units of the WSET Level 4 Diploma in 2016, and the Graham’s Port Scholarship for the highest mark in the Fortified Wines paper.

For 5 years, he was the company director at Theatre of Wine, an independent retailer and importer, where he was responsible for buying, staff training, tastings and private clients.

He writes a monthly column for Drinks Retailing, as well as engaging with other freelance writing and communication projects.
