DFJ VINHOS shines in China’s biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition!

DFJ VINHOS has just been awarded with an impressive Two Double Gold, 6 Gold, 2 Silver and the CWSA Lisboa Wine of the Year trophy at the CWSA Best Value medal at the China Wine and Spirits Awards Best Value 2014.

DFJ VINHOS triumphed in the blind tasting alongside the most famous brands in the world including Penfolds, Robert Mondovi, Astoria, Osborne, Wolf Blass, and 4,350 wine and spirits from 35 countries.
‘This news has been a very pleasant surprise and we are thrilled that DFJ VINHOS has made such an impact with the biggest honor in the Hong Kong and China wine and spirits market. CWSA is the biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition in Hong Kong and China and the wine industry’s equivalent of the Academy Awards - so this is a huge achievement for us’, revealed JOSÉ NEIVA CORREIA owner and chief winemaker.

German born and Hong Kong based Importer Nikolas Prehn says: “This extraordinary competition has showed that at each and every price point, including the very highest - Chinese buyers and consumers want confidence that the wines and spirits they are choosing are the ‘Best Value’. As CWSA Judges are known as the most respected buyers based here in Hong Kong and China, the results are trusted - and therefore winning wines and spirits showcasing their CWSA medal stickers are a desirable purchase.”

“The CWSA Organization has been overwhelmed by the sheer quality of entrants for this year’s CWSA Best Value’, says Kelly England, President of the China Wine and Spirits Awards organization. ‘The most highly regarded brands in the world understand that giving the ‘best value’ to buyers means a great deal. For a consumer, it can also be a matter of ‘saving face’ here in China, where consumers want to be certain they are making the smart buying decision. CWSA medals are known for providing the clear professional recommendation.”

We at DFJ VINHOS are honored and thank our whole team for their expertise. “We are very happy and will be displaying our CWSA medals on bottles with pride and are now preparing our next harvest celebrating with our team”.
