"As a representative of HK for ASI bootcamp, I wish to bring in a different insight for the judging panel to look for those we called “sommelier wine”, like something with great potential in lesser known regions, and/or great balance on acidity with lovely complexity that could have huge potential on food and wine matching."

"My favourite part of the judging is to engage with different judges with different backgrounds as we would have different taste bud. A super interesting interaction had been made in 2021. And I believe this time would be even more fun. "
