What is Decanter?
Decanter magazine is - quite simply - the world’s best wine magazine. Read in over 90 countries, Decanter is required reading for everyone with an interest in wine - from amateur enthusiast to serious collector. Their experts recommend 4,000 wines a year, so whether you’re looking for affordable Australian Shiraz for the weekend, or premier cru Burgundy to lay down, Decanter will find it for you. A special ceremony was held in London last night (june 24, 2014) to reveal what 33 wines out of 15,000 entries scooped International Trophies at the 2014 Decanter World Wine Awards. C.C. Jentsch Cellars, a new winery in the fast growing wine region of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, pick up 3 awards from its first vintage. ( www.decanter.com)
