Meet our judges

The China Wine Competition boasts of having the most highly qualified and trained panel of wine buyers and wine experts who are based in mainland China.

As the mission and philosophy of the China Wine Competition is to award wines by quality, value and package for the China market, all our judges are from mainland China who understands the Chinese palate.

The goal, quite simply, is to gain cross-industry recognition for wines that Chinese consumers actually want to drink.
