Decanter World Wine Awards 2020 judging month took place from 1-28 August with a staggering 16,518 wines evaluated by 116 expert wine judges.

As Regional Chair for New Zealand, Rebecca Gibb MW noted, ‘I think the DWWA has provided a sense of normality in a very unpredictable and strange year and shows the wine world that actually, you can hold a wine competition and large-scale wine tastings in the current climate.’
