Trophy awarded in International Wine Challenge 2018

The IWC has been held every April since 1984. It is the world’s largest wine competition where over 10,000 wines are exhibited. The categories are divided according to combinations of country and wine types, such as French wine (red) and Italian wine (sparkling). The Trophy is an award bestowed on a brand distinguished from among wines that won the Gold award in each category.

The Tomi no Oka Winery series has received many high evaluations as a winery brand that represents Japanese wine. For instance, last year Tomi Red 2012 was awarded two prizes in the Japan Wine Competition 2017: highest award in the division and the Gold Medal in the Vinifera (Red) category. In addition, this year Tomi No Oka Red 2015 was the only Japanese wine selected for ANA’s Premium Wine Selection 2018 served in First Class on international flights.

Aiming to make Japanese wine that inspires emotions across the world, Suntory Wine International will work to increase the number of Japanese wine fans in Japan and overseas, and to further increase its value and quality. Please keep an eye on the Tomi no Oka Winery series!
