The Decanter World Wine Awards 2005 were announced at a presentation dinner in London recently. The awards are organised by the magazine Decanter and were also promoted on the Decanter.com website. These prestigious awards are pure marketing gold for the category winners and even those wines that achieve 'commended' status. These winners are entitled to display the 'winner' or 'commended' medals and logos on their promotional material and on the actual labels of their wine products. The Decanter magazine and website, along with other trade and consumer publications, carry the results of the awards. Purchasing decisions, whether by retailers or distributors, or by consumers, are then informed by the presence of the Decanter awards logos on products or the listing of the products in news of the awards. At the presentation dinner at Lindley Hall, winners of the regional and international categories were presented with engraved decanters as the Regional Trophies and the International Trophies. The decanters were designed by George Riedel.
