DWWA judge profile: Victoria Daskal

Victoria Daskal is a judge at the 2024 Decanter World Wine Awards.

Victoria Daskal

Victoria is a wine writer, educator, presenter and consultant with over 15 years of experience in the wine industry.

In 2007-2008, Victoria travelled through 45 wine regions and 23 countries as part of a prestigious professional wine programme, the OIV MSc in International Wine Management. She began writing while on the road for Master of Wine Jancis Robinson’s publication, and moved to London to work with her on the wine knowledge platform, Purple Pages.

Over the next decade, Victoria worked in fine wine sales, wine event management, and most recently was the Managing Editor of The World of Fine Wine magazine for six years. In 2020, she launched a wine subscription club called Mummy Wine Club, combining her love of artisanal, high-quality wines made by small, family producers with creative cultural themes. Victoria’s curated selections based on Hemingway’s wines in A Moveable Feast, Ancient Wine Regions, and Volcanic Wines led to an award from Decanter Magazine and being listed by Stylist Magazine as Best Wine Club.

Her business has since evolved from monthly wine boxes to wine masterclasses and tastings under the name Victoria Daskal Wine.

Upon completing the WSET Diploma with Merit, Victoria became a certified educator and teaches Levels 2 and 3 at the WSET School in London.
