Your Boardwalk to the Asian Wine Market

Wine Awards Asia (WAA)

Our Story

More than just an Award


WAA is a international wine competition taking place every year in Asia, which would definitely be the highlight of the year. We aim to build a bridge between Western Wineries and the Asian Market, by rendering our support for networking, localized strategic planning, online business, as well as gathering insight from the Wine experts & amateurs in Asia.  

We understand Wine has a long history and culture and is regarded as a lifestyle trend, quickly assimilating into Asian dining cultures. Our vision is to aid these fruits of hard labor of vintners and winemakers and connect them to this new and uncharted territory.

What makes the WAA different

Introducing Brand new concepts in the world of wine awards


  • The Process

    A WAA award-winning wine is tasted by a minimum of 25 judges before being awarded. The rigorous process is undertaken by certified wine professionals and influencers/buyers that open the door for the Asian wine market.

  • 500K+ Representation

    All wines are tasted blind with no pricing or producer information provided. Wines are grouped by Type, Region, Alcohol & Sugar %, ensuring similar wines are judged together.  A Second panel of judging by influencers makes up for better representation of the Asian consumer market with the 500K+ loyal following.

  • Award Winning E-shop

    All WAA wine results are hosted on our official website, and each winery has their own page to ensure trade and consumers are able to easily identify the winning wines. Award winning wines will also enjoy free-listing on the E-shop for consumers to try the 'first-sips' of these wines, testing the local market immediately.

  • Online + Offline Merchandising Support

    Awarded wines will be arranged virtual meetings with potential buyers from our sourcing database and also have their wines showcased at the upcoming 'TOP-100' Tasting in the upcoming Hong Kong Wine and Music Festival, gaining maximum access from buyers all around. Wineries are able to schedule a time for ZOOM Meeting with Asian Buyers, communicating directly across the border.

We go the extra mile

to match quality wines.
