Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is one of the largest and most influential wine competitions in the world. All wines entered in the competition are evaluated by 250 top wine experts from around the world. The winners of the silver medals go through two rounds of tasting, and the winners of the gold medals go through three rounds. This rigorous process ensures that each wine is carefully reviewed.

The gold-medaled wines are then reclassified according to grapes or style and tasted once again by a panel of regional presidents and co-chairs of the jury. The wines are judged according to their origin, and the judges will know the countries, regions, sub-regions, grapes, season and price. Within each grape variety, more than one wine from a particular country or region may be promoted to Platinum. The winners will receive "Platinum" medals. "Best Show" is the top prize at the Decanter World Wine Awards. In a separate tasting, the four co-chairs taste all the platinum winners to select the best one. When selecting the supreme distinction, the co-chairs are aware of the origins, the grapes, the vintage and the price bands.
