    ‘So few wine competitions have any influence outside of their community. Decanter’s respect, however, is international. Sales for our relatively unknown Sangiovese skyrocketed after success in Decanter’s competition.’

    Cathy Seghesio

    Seghesio Family Vineyards

    Winner, International Red Italian Varietal Trophy over £10

    ‘We have had a great response and found two new overseas markets through the Decanter World Wine Awards.’

    Edeltraud Everling (Oenologist)

    Johanneshof Cellars

    Winner, International Aromatic White Trophy over £10

    ‘A very soundly based competition in that the tasting environment is excellent, the tasters are all professional, unlike some others where professionals and amateurs take part, and panel chairmen/women are recognised as leading authorities in their fields.’

    Alun Griffiths MW

    Wine Director, Berry Bros & Rudd

    ‘Grant’s Award provided the perfect platform for us to grow our sales of Grant Burge Fortified wines, as it generated real interest from the press and trade alike.’

    Charlie Croft

    Stevens Garnier

    Winner, International Red Fortified Trophy over £10

    ‘The Decanter Awards highlight value for money, regionality and quality, providing wine drinkers with buying recommendations from a panel of the world’s foremost experts – backed by a global magazine of some stature, credibility and pedigree.’

    Peter Gago

    Chief winemaker, Southcorp

    ‘The calibre of judging is extremely high and it is a privilege to be able to taste with so many acknowledged specialists in their field. Consequently, producers can be pretty confident that their wines will have been given every chance to shine.’

    Richard Bampfield MW

    ‘I have judged on many competitions over the years and I have no doubt that a recommendation, let alone a medal, in the Decanter competition carries a great deal of weight.’

    Anthony Barne MW

    Head of Wine Department, Bonhams
