Hong Kong House Wine Awards 2019

駐店酒大獎
House Wine Award

Introduction

Since its introduction in 2011, the House Wine Awards attracted more than two thousand participating entries throughout the years. Following the last eight successful years of House Wine Awards, and with the support of Restaurant & Bar Hong Kong Expo, we are proud to launch the 9th House Wine Awards in 2019.

House Wine Awards aims to recognise wine distributors who provide and select high-quality house wine for restaurants in Hong Kong that best reflects the taste of customers. We believe that “behind every successful restaurant, there stands a tasteful wine distributor.”

Judging

All wines are tasted in blind by our judging panel.

We adopt a 20 points wine scoring system which is based upon European and Davis model but adjusted to match Asian & Chinese palate. Entries will be  subdivided into different Classes by thier origin, price point, and style. In our past experience, each tasting bracket will not normally exceed 30 entries.

Depending its aggregate score, Gold, Silver,  or Bronze Medal may be given to an entry.

There are 2 rounds of judging, during the first round, the entries will be tasted and scored by a larger group of tasting panel in blind. The tasting panel score each and every entry without discussing with another.

The final round of judging will be conducted by an expert tasting panel consist of celebrity wine judges, KOLs and guest judges from overseas and mainland China. The judging panel will then re-examine the award winning entries, especially the marginal cases, collaborate their idea and deliver their final verdict as a whole.

Our judge panels includes local and overseas wine professionals from all walks of life, including wine critics and columnist, sommelier, F&B professionals, PR specialist, wine educators and academia.

We strive to maintain diversity of our judge panels, our international judging panel includes guest judges from overseas and mainland China, many of them possess substantial judging experiences in regional and international wine shows or received advanced wine assessment training in overseas countries.
