"2018 is a milestone for the HK IWSC as it celebrates its 10th anniversary. I hope to contribute to the promotion of this competition’s influence and prestige to wine lovers in the mainland.

My favourite part of judging is the food & wine pairing section as it is a unique chance to see how both food and wine work together. When we find the perfect match, it is like a “firework” in the night sky.

We need to find out our own standpoint in the world of wine and HK IWSC helps us to navigate that."
