DWWA wines impress at the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter in New York

Incredible venue, amazing wines. Discover highlights from the DWWA winners' bar at the inaugural event in New York City.

Making its debut last month, more than 500 wine lovers ascended to the 60th floor of New York City’s Manhatta to discover and enjoy outstanding wines at Decanter’s world-renowned Fine Wine Encounter.

The one day event included four expert-led masterclasses, some 50 producers sampling their iconic wines and the highly impressive Decanter World Wine Awards winners’ bar, featuring a selection of Gold, Platinum and Best in Show medal winners from the 2021 competition.

23 top-scoring wines from 11 countries were showcased at the inaugural event.

DWWA showcases garner interest and excitement as they offer consumers the rare opportunity to sample a wide selection of the competition’s highest scoring wines, and this DWWA winners’ bar – set against breathtaking views of the New York skyline – did not disappoint.

Featuring 23 top-scoring wines, the popular bar included 95+ point sparkling, white, red and sweet wines from 11 countries.

‘The open and friendly atmosphere, which began at the reception desk, was important to set the proper mood. The presentation and tasting bar for the DWWA was wonderful,’ commented one visitor.

From ‘loved the top 23 wines featured at the Decanter Awards bar’ to ‘tasting the Gold and Platinum winners,’ the feedback from the inaugural event and DWWA display highlights the calibre of the event and competition results.
