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 and China based peers.’
The winning wines, including DFJ VINHOS, are promoting their success with CWSA medal stickers showcasing their CWSA 2013 status to consumers with the CWSA stamp of recommendation.
