‘NZ Wine Producer of the Year 2013’ trophy in China

19th March 2013

Babich Wins Trophy for ‘New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year 2013’ in China

Babich Wines has continued their run of impressive international accolades by winning the Trophy for ‘New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year 2013’ at the China Wine & Spirits Awards Best Value 2013 held in Hong Kong earlier this month.

The Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 and Babich The Patriarch 2010 both won a Double Gold Medal. These medals, along with a Silver Medal for the Babich Black Label Sauvignon Blanc 2012 helped clinch the ‘New Zealand Wine Producer of the Year 2013’ trophy.

The China Wine & Spirits Awards is the largest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition in Hong Kong and China and are the only awards in the world judged specifically for the China market. The entire focus is on consumer preferences and demand and the judges are all major purchasing decision makers in the growing Chinese market. They are key Chinese wine importers, distributors, wholesalers, restaurant group owners and sommeliers based in China.

“We are thrilled to win this award and the timing could not be better for us as we continue to develop our distribution throughout China” says David Babich, General Manger, who will be in China later this month promoting the brand.
