"I'm looking forward to meeting fellow colleagues and to gain some insights as a Sommelier which may be interesting when it comes to awards related to pairing compatibility."

I'm also looking forward to studying the rating processes and scoring standards of different judges - especially the ways the panel heads reconcile subjective judgments or conflicting judging standards so as to bring about fair and impartial results

Presence at the Asian food and wine pairing awards is particularly meaningful to me as it particularly connects well with the broader food-first wine-second population. That component makes this wine competition not just an elite event for the wine-literate crowd. It also excels over others of which the most relevant awards for consumers tend to be closely linked with price categories. Asians love food, and a wine competition that includes a food and wine pairing award makes me more relevant and applicable to the local markets."
