agree with Vithal.
Shunned A and B for passive construction, C is wrong because it introduces a dependent clause and we need a present perfect as in D.

Agree. In the last twenty years implies action from the past to the present point in time, thus, present perfect. (has/have + past participle)

have/has gained.

wines have gained respect.
Therefore D.
