Responding to the announcement of his nomination Agarwal enthused, " I am incredibly happy to be nominated and it energises me and All Things Nice further to push the envelope on creating culture and awareness in India in relation to wine and spirits. When we created platforms like Wine Week, the Indian Wine Consumers Choice Awards and Celebrating India's Finest we simply wanted to get our message across. It feels great to see all that effort and investment be recognised. What has also truly excited All Things Nice from the very beginning and one that I am passionate about personally is the revolution in the quality of wines being produced in India, coming up and creating game changing platforms to create awareness for Indian wine has never been work to us, I hope that along with our efforts the world recognises Indian wine even more" .

No matter where the entry originates, whether it is youthful or aged, it is judged according to its class and treated with respect and consideration. The Competition has the support of many of the world’s top wine and spirit producers, setting the international benchmark for quality. The unique combination of detailed technical analysis and specialist judging panels means that gaining an IWSC ‘Competition Award’ is an exceptional achievement.
