Invitation to Participate
We are pleased to invite your winery to participate in our upcoming 1st Annual Asia International Wine Competition to be held in the Fall of 2017. We are currently in the process of arranging a location to host this unique competition in Hong Kong.
After the success of running the New York International Spirits Competition in November 2010, vintners from around the world asked us to replicate this successful competition with wine. We were excited with the over 700 wine submissions we received in our first year in 2011. What sets us apart from other international beverage competitions is our TRADE ONLY blind judging panel, and the wine industry has continued to take notice.
The respect that the New York International Wine Competition has garnered led wine producers, importers, distributors, retail store buyers and sommeliers to ask us to bring this same philosophy to Europe, Australia, and now Hong Kong. We are proud to add the Asia International Wine Competition and the Asia International Spirits Competition to the International Beverage Competition Series. Like our New York competition, in Hong Kong our judges will be the retail store buyer, sommelier, restaurant beverage director, hotelier, distributor and importer. We feel that these judges, whose livelihood rely upon their skill set, truly know what the consumer wants, as they receive on a daily basis the feedback from the consumer of what is good and what will sell. We gather the best and brightest buyers to be our judges -- our panels will include beverage industry professionals from all over the continent.
The International Beverage Competition Series also includes the New York International Beer Competition, the New York International Wine Competition, the Berlin International Wine Competition, the Berlin International Spirits Competition, the Melbourne International Spirits Competition, the Melbourne International Beer Competition, the Melbourne International Wine Competition.
