The long-awaited results of the 18th edition of the Decanter World Wine Awards 2021 have been announced.
The world's largest wine competition has had the biggest challenge so far, with a record 18.094 wines from 56 countries applying. For 15 consecutive days in June, nearly 170 wine judges, including 44 wine masters and 11 sommelier masters, declared the 50 best wines and 179 platinum, 635 gold, 5.607 silver and 8.332 bronze medals.
Croatian winemakers won 254 medals from Decanter, 28 more than last year. Three Croatian wineries won the platinum medal and a total of 97 points - Benvenuti (Motova), Zure (Korčula) and Bire (Korčula). In total, Croatian winemakers won 3 platinum awards, 8 gold, 80 silver and 163 bronze.
Unfortunately, this year we did not achieve positioning at the very top of Decanter's list with at least one wine in the category Best in Show or top 50 best wines in the world, but as more and more Croatian winemakers invest more and more in quality, we are sure that we will get to that last step.
