We present predictions for diboson production (with exact decays) that are next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) accurate and consistently matched to a parton shower. The matching is achieved by upgrading, with MiNLO, the NLO calculation of $W^+W^-+$1 jet production, in such a way that NLO accuracy is guaranteed for $W^+W^-$ inclusive observables, and by performing subsequently a reweighting of the WWJ-MiNLO events, differential in the $W^+W^-$ Born variables, to the NNLO results obtained with MATRIX.
