CHARITY WINE SALE
As part of the rigorous DWWA judging process, wines are re-tasted up to four separate times across three stages of judging, so entrants must send four bottles per entry in the chance that they move up the rounds of judging. That means almost 72,400 bottles were sent in from around the globe for the 2021 competition.
Leftover wines are auctioned by Christie's and sold in the annual DWWA charity wine sale, with all proceeds donated to a number of charities.
You now have the opportunity to purchase leftover wines from the 2021 competition, and in doing so support the work of some fantastic charities, including:*
