"The Most Prestigious Wine Competition in the World"


....is how Steven Spurrier characterizes Decanter Magazine's 'World Wine Awards'.
Spurrier is amongst the most well-known wine critics in the world, and the individual behind the shocking 1976 'Judgment of Paris' wine competition where American wines, sourced from California, beat French wines in a blind tasting.  
Decanter Magazine, based in London, is recognized globally as the most authoritative wine enthusiast magazine. Each year, the competition sources nearly 10,000 wines from around the globe, and ultimately awards medals to roughly 400 finalists. As the UK has no meaningful local wine production of its own, and have always relied on wine imports for their needs, they are unusually unprejudiced when evaluating wines, and accordingly, the value of the World Wine Awards is internationally recognized as an exceedingly fair competition.
In 2010, Matthew Meyer sent 5 of his wines to London (Adagio, Gabriel Archer Reserve, Trianon, Vintage Reserve Chardonnay, and Acte 12 Chardonnay). We learned in early April that not only had we medaled in the competition, but that every wine that was entered was recognized.  It was an eventful day for the Winery, and the Virginia wine industry.
