Japan Wine Challenge 2020 Open for Entries

The Japan Wine Challenge is also the oldest and most prestigious national wine competition in Asia.

For years the Japan Wine Challenge has played a pivotal role in the development, awareness and sales of international wine brands in Japan, Asia, and internationally. As Australia and New Zealand lead the world in recovering from the effects of the COVID-19, we know Australia and New Zealand’s wine producers will be keen to showcase to the world the wonderful wines they have to offer.

The 22nd Japan Wine Challenge 2019 was held at the Conrad Tokyo from 6th to 8th August 2019. A total of over 1,200 wines from across the world were entered.  These were judged by a panel of over 30 top wine professionals from Japan and internationally, as well as their counterparts from across the spectrum of Japan’s wine trade and media.
A total of 13 wines received the coveted Trophy award, 18 Platinum Gold medals and 100 wines received Gold medals,  260 received Silver medals, and 533 received Bronze medals.  In addition to recognising absolute quality, special Trophy Awards were made for Best Value Wine, Best Discovery Wine and Best Wine from organically grown grapes.
