Ca d'Abruzzo just hit the highest standard at the most influential wine and spirits competition in the world - CWSA - China Wine and Spirits Awards. Winning a Gold and Silver medal, which is the ultimate seal of approval in the booming Chinese drinks market.
CWSA is the most influential wine and spirits competition in the world - helping to sell a staggering 90 million bottles per year. Long renowned internationally as the biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition in China, CWSA Judges are the most powerful buyers in China.
'The wine and spirits market in China is continuing to grow exponentially - and is set to become the second largest in the world by 2020', a CWSA Spokesman said.
'To help international producers take advantage of the huge opportunity in China, we assembled an incredible group of Judges who have extensive local knowledge and influence.
Wine is serious business in China. CWSA Judges want to be the first to taste all the newest offerings from producers around the world so they can be at the front of the queue to buy the highly desirable CWSA winning wine and spirits.'
CWSA Best Value 2018 was the biggest on record with an excess of 5,000 samples from 55 countries around the world. High profile entrants include Peter Lehmann, Jacob's Creek, Bacardi, Sileni, Bernard Magrez, Casa Ermelinda Freitas, Champagne Collet, Dewar's and Label 5.
'We are so extremely happy to hear that our samples performed so well at CWSA Best Value 2018' reported Beniamino Di Domenica winemaker.

Now we will be showcasing our CWSA Medals to ensure everyone will see our new status and knows how proud the team are to make Ca d'Abruzzo Spumante Brut 2016 a Gold CWSA Medal Winner, Ca d'Abruzzo Spumante Extra Dry 2016 a Gold CWSA Medal Winner, Ca d'Abruzzo Rosso Premium Dry 2016 a Silver CWSA Medal Winner.
