UK Wineries Win Big at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2023!

Chapel Down Brut NV + Flutes

The Decanter Awards is now in its 20th year and is regarded as the most respected wine competition in the world.

In past years, the competition has been dominated by Italian, Spanish and French wines.

However, for the first time, UK wines have been able to take home some of the competition’s most prestigious awards.

In total 143 excellent UK wines managed to bring home medals, including wines from Chapel Down and Wiston Estate.

Simon Field, regional chair for the UK at DWWA, and master of wine said: ‘The increase in both volume and quality of the still wines submitted, their provenance as varied as their quality was consistent.

‘The quality of the sparklers, secondly, continues to impress as the category takes on maturity; as the wines and winemakers alike take on a little more age it becomes increasingly clear that the long-held faith in such things has most definitely not been informed by misguided patriotism.’

Here are a few notable wines from our range that won an award:
