Awards show price means quality
When it comes to wine, you get what you pay for, that’s according to the Decanter World Wine Awards.
The results of the Awards show overwhelmingly that price means quality and that the number of top awards – Gold medals, International and Regional Trophies – increases as the wine goes up in value.
Although a huge number of wines in the under £10 category won medals, more Golds were won in the more expensive categories.
Overall, Decanter World Wine Awards judges said consumers should expect to pay an average of £6.99 for a 'decent' bottle of wine.
