More International Awards….

Ancre Hill Estates has received further International recognition with awards at the China Wine and Spirits Awards (CWSA).

Ancre Hill Estates was awarded a Gold medal at the 2013 China Wine & Spirits Awards for its 2009 Sparkling Rosé wine.  The Estate also received a Silver medal for its 2009 Sparkling White wine.  This is the Oscar’s of the wine world in the fastest growing beverage market in the world.

The CWSA results are long established as the annual gateway to China for already established internationally famous wine and spirits brands and also for niche producers. The CWSA results are referred to as the benchmark of buying decisions throughout the year.

5,375 wine and spirits from 35 countries were blind tasted during the CWSA Tasting Week by 100 Judges, all selected as the most important Importers, Distributors and Retailers based in Hong Kong and China.

American born and China based CWSA Judge Richard Howe says: “I think it’s critical to have buyers as CWSA Judges. We are the buyers in China and we know the taste of the people and what works here. When I see wines with the CWSA medal stickers, I immediately know they are the ones to watch and have been recommended by my Hong Kong andChinabased peers.”

“The CWSA continues to be the ultimate authority for wines and spirits here in Hong Kong and China and we wish 2013 winners well deserved congratulations for being selected by the CWSA  Judges for this honour” says Kelly England, President of the China Wine and Spirits Awards organisation.

Richard Morris of Ancre Hill Estates commented: “This is a huge plus for Ancre Hill Estates.  We see China as a prime export market and this will give our wines the stamp of approval necessary to penetrate the Chinese market. In November we are exhibiting our Sparkling Wines at the Food & Hotel China Exhibition at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre and the medal awards will give our wines the high profile so necessary in this market.  This is another giant step for the Welsh Wine Industry.”
