All Things Nice, a Wine & Spirits Consultancy, acknowledged the best wines selected by the consumers, at the Indian Wine Consumer Choice Awards 2018 (IWCCA) held at the  Hafele Design Centre SOBO in Mumbai recently. The 6th annual edition of awards was presented by HT Cafe, Hafele and Living Foodz in association with Lucaris Crystal Glassware and Cathay Pacific Airlines.

The best wines in categories of Gold, Silver and Bronze  were selected through a process of blind tasting of over 120  different varieties by 105 selected wine consumers from India, Chile, Argentina, Japan, Australia, UK, France, Italy, etc. through a four-hour process held earlier this year in Mumbai.

The gold winners at IWCCA 2018 were Big Banyan Bellisima NV, Big Banyan Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Casablanca Vino Spumante NV, Charosa Reserve Tempranillo 2015, Four Seasons Classic Chenin Blanc 2017, Good Earth Antaraa NV, Grovers Art Collection Cabernet Shiraz 2017, Grovers Chêne 2015, KRSMA Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Oakwood Reisha Shiraz 2015, SDU Reserva Syrah 2013, SDU Deva Chardonnay NV, Sula Riesling 2017, Sula Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Sula Zinfandel Rosé 2017, Syonaa Shiraz NV, Vallonné Merlot Reserve 2014 and Vallonné Viognier Reserve 2017.

Commenting on the event Sommelier Nikhil Agarwal, CEO of All Things Nice, said,  “The main aim of IWCCA was to give Indian consumers an opportunity to judge for themselves and on behalf of  other consumers the best Indian wines available in the country. We have made sure that there are more people from different part of the world presented from the best wine makers. There were about 130 wineries participates in the IWCCA award. For us tasting wine from every corner of the world was important. This edition of Celebrating India’s Finest was the biggest that we have put together so far.”

With more wineries starting up in India and more wines being launched by existing wineries, Agarwal said that IWCCA creates an independent list of quality wines chosen by consumers themselves. “The consumers taste the wines blind, unaware of the brand name or price point thereby allowing an unbiased judgment based purely on the quality of the wine itself. We strongly believe in the Indian wine industry and hope that this platform will create an independent view on consumer likes and dislikes.”
