The Annual Wines of Chile Awards (AWoCA) is the Chilean wine industry’s single most important event of the year and for the very first time, AWoCA moves out from Chile and goes to Brazil!. Twelve top judges from the brazilean market will gather in Sao Paulo during a week in November 2014 to taste and judge our country’s finest wines.
The judges will have the unique opportunity of tasting Chile’s broad range of diverse varieties, styles, and terroirs: from the dry north to the colder, wetter south, and from the steep Andean hillsides, to the cool Pacific coast. We intend for each judge to leave with a better understanding of how Chile’s vast geographic diversity imprints itself on its wines.
We expect more than 90 wineries and over 630 wines to participate of this wine challenge, each hoping to excel in one of the 14 different categories. The event consists of two activities: First, a blind tasting of chilean wines executed over a 3 day period, followed by a Gala were the industry gathers and where the results and recognitions are awarded.
