Georgian wines get top awards at Japan's international wine competition

31.08.2017 (Hvino News). Today the results of the Japan Wine Challenge 2017 (JWC) competition became known. This year 8 Georgian wines won the highest awards in Japan.

The top platinum medal and Regional Trophy went to Saperavi 2015 by Chigogidze Wines. The Vaziani Company won two gold medals and a Regional Trophy.

Natia Metreveli, CEO of Vaziani Company, commented to Hvino News: "This day is very special for our company. Vaziani Company wine from Makashvili Wine Cellar - Khikhvi (2016 Vintage) was awarded with Regional Wine Trophy (best Georgian white wine) and with the Gold Medal. Gold medal was also awarded to another qvevri wine - Mtsvane (2016 Vintage). As far as I know this is the first time when Georgian wine Khikhvi gets the highest award in international wine contests. It's very important that old and rare Georgian grape varieties are becoming more and more popular."
