After two weeks of rigorous, and for the second year-running COVID-safe, judging in London’s Canary Wharf, the results of the Decanter World Wine Awards 2021 are here, and La Chimera d’Albegna once again showed strength with not one, but TWO Silver Medals!
Now in its 18th year, the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most influential wine competition. More than 160 judges, including 44 Masters of Wine and 11 Master Sommeliers, judged 18,094 entries from 56 countries at this year’s edition, making it a record year for wines tasted.
Tuscany – always at or near to top of the medal-winning tree – claimed the lion’s share of Italian wins. We are proud to not only represent Italy, but our region, one of the best wine making regions in the world.
Andrew Jefford, DWWA Co-Chair, said, “DWWA is the world’s leading wine competition. I’m absolutely thrilled to take part in it every year because having tasted in a number of other competitions I know how well it’s organised, how carefully everything is done. So if you get a medal from DWWA it really is worth having and everybody respects it internationally. We get entries from every corner of the wine world, so it is as it were the closest you can get to a universal benchmark.”
It is the trusted relationship that Decanter – the world’s leading wine media brand – has with an international audience of both consumers and trade that sets DWWA apart from other competitions.
Decanter is the world’s leading wine media brand with a total monthly reach in excess of 2.2 million via our print magazine, websites and social media channels.
