Japan Wine Challenge Magazine
Our key focus continues to be the development of consumer/wine lover awareness and understanding of wines, resulting in on-going increase in sales of quality wines in this very demanding market.
Once the competition is finished each year, we focus all our attention on getting the results out in timely manner, both on the website and through our emagazine, and to working with entrants worldwide through our medal seals and related promotions to develop demand for their wines in Japan and around the world.
The 20th Japan Wine Challenge 2017 was held in the Conrad Tokyo from 15th to 17th August 2017. A total of over 1,700 wines from across the world were entered, representing an increase of just under 10% on last year. These were judged by a panel of over 30 top wine professionals from Japan and internationally. These included John Salvi MW, Jim Harre, Katsuyuki Tanaka, Anthony Rose, Andrew Caillard MW, Neal Martin, Rowald Hepp, Eduardo Dingler, and Marcelo Pino, as well as their counterparts from across the spectrum of Japan's wine trade and media.
