Six (6) bottles of samples must be sent for every entry to the Wine Award Asia. For instance, for wineries applied for 3 entries, at least 6 bottles are required for each entry, 18 units (6x3) in total. Given that wines will be tasted multiple times. An extra bottle is necessary to allow for an out of condition sample.
