"It's my honor to be one of the members on the judging panel. It's a good chance to explore some hidden treasures in a very professional and objective way. This assures that wineries will be encouraged to produce more quality wines and get the affirmative position in the wine industry.”

“I do hope I can use my judging experience and professional knowledge to consolidate the standard of the wine industry and help to set up quality assurance to consumers.”

“The HKIWSC is a persuasive and very professional way to qualify the wine industry. Being awarded a medal from HKIWSC is very good reference to consumers."
