French winemakers lead the field as Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 winners revealed

French winemakers have reasserted their authority on the wine world by scooping some of the most coveted trophies at the annual Decanter World Wine Awards ceremony, with South Africa, Canada, the US and British supermarket chains also scoring notable successes.

More than 200 guests, including some of the wine world’s biggest names, gathered at Decanter’s headquarters in central London last night to hear first-hand which producers have won the 33 International Trophies that represent the most prestigious prizes at the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).

France won seven International Trophies, more than any other wine producing nation, in what proved a particularly strong showing for the country’s white wines.
