The CWSA are the only awards in the world judged specifically for the China market and is entirely focused on consumer preferences and demand. In addition, the CWSA are unique in that they are open for entry by both producers and distributors looking to enter and succeed in China.

The Judges are all major purchasing decision makers in the growing Chinese market. They are key Chinese wine importers, distributors, wholesalers, restaurant group owners, sommeliers based in China. The CWSA Judges understand the often under estimated demands of wine consumers in major cities and also more remote and highly lucrative provinces across China.

The judges are major importers, distributors and wholesalers of wine, restaurateurs and sommeliers, who might be expected to understand what ordinary Chinese people (i.e. not billionaires) are looking for. The results are an education about what's happening in wine consumption in China. John Radford, Award-winning author, writer, editor and broadcaster.
