Kluge Winery racks up awards in Hong Kong
Kluge Estate Vineyard and Winery brought home six awards for its sparkling wines from the first Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition, an event designed to target Asian preferences in wine consumption.
Two Kluge wines won in the important dim sum category for how they paired with one of China's favorite foods. Kluge SP Rose Sparkling Brut 2004 won a silver medal and and Kluge SP Blanc de Blanc 2004 was awarded a bronze medal.
Approximately 1,300 wines from around the world were judged by wine professionals from China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Thailand and India.
"This competition shines a spotlight on an exciting burgeoning market," says owner Patricia Kluge in a statement. "The combination of Asian judges, Asian food and awards really means something to the consumers of the region and we are thrilled to be noticed.”
