Jurors’ Expertise

Tasters are the mainstay of the competition.
Producers who send their products to be tasted put their trust in the Competition, which is responsible for the quality of the tasting. That’s why the AWA has set up a multiple-phase process for recruiting and approving tasters.
Samples are not tasted by professionals alone, because let’s not forget that most future buyers are amateurs!
We have decided to mix knowledgeable amateurs and professionals in the field at each table, so producers are guaranteed a range of opinions from tasters.

Commercially Relevant

Crucially, all the winners in the Asia Wine Awards will give future trade wine buyers, be they for a supermarket, specialist wine retailer, casual dining or upmarket restaurant, the re-assurance that these are wines that their customers want to buy. The Asia Wine Awards judges are a leading panel of top-level wine buyers with current direct commercial buying responsibility. or wine consultants and experts who are also directly involved in the development of new wine brands or buying wine for commercial resale.

Cross-industry Recognition​

The Asia Wine Awards also recognizes the huge talent and skills that now exist right through the wine supply chain. From the winemakers, growers and producers that are making the wine; through to the specialist importers and wholesalers that help bring them to market; along with the brand development teams that ensure there is a market and customer base to sell to. There are many benefits of winning a medal at the Asia Wine Awards.

Consumer Awareness

Winners in the Asia Wine Awards will receive either a Grand Gold, Gold or Silver award and be supported by a strong consumer awareness campaign, particularly through social media channels and wine comparison apps, to promote this new global competition.
