What is the Asian Wine Review (AWR)?

Brainchild of award-winning winemaker Eddie McDougall and his team at The Flying Winemaker, the Asian Wine Review is the world’s most trusted guide on Asian wine production, helping consumers worldwide in making better wine selections and helping wine producers obtain professional feedback. Covering the region’s must-know wineries and viticultural knowledge, wines are rigorously tasted and rated by a judging panel of Asia’s foremost wine experts, establishing a standard for winemakers regionally. Showcasing the crème de la crème, the AWR is a voice for Asian wines and aims to represent the homegrown talent of Asia on a global stage.

Progress Made in 2017:

  • 100 Asian wineries submitted just shy of 300 wines for judging (a threefold increase from 2016)
  • 171 medals were awarded to wines winning Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Best in Class
  • Wines submitted hailed from nine Asian countries:
    • China
    • India
    • Indonesia
    • Israel
    • Japan
    • Lebanon
    • Myanmar
    • Russia
    • Thailand
