Caves da Montanha shines in China’s biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition!

Breaking news for Caves da Montanha, who has just been awarded with two impressive Double Gold and one Silver CWSA Best Value medal at the China Wine and Spirits Awards Best Value 2014.

Caves da Montanha brands Conde de Serpa red wine, Licor Nacional liqueur and Montanha Reserva Sparkling Wine, triumphed in the blind tasting alongside the most famous brands in the world including Penfolds, Robert Mondovi, Astoria, Osborne, Wolf Blass, and 4,350 wine and spirits from 35 countries.

‘This news has been a very pleasant surprise and we are thrilled that Caves da Montanha has made such an impact with the biggest honor in the Hong Kong and China wine and spirits market. CWSA is the biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition in Hong Kong and China and the wine industry’s equivalent of the Academy Awards - so this is a huge achievement for us’, revealed Luis Melo, Export Director of Caves da Montanha.

German born and Hong Kong based Importer Nikolas Prehnsays: ‘This extraordinary competition has showed that at each and every price point, including the very highest - Chinese buyers and consumers want confidence that the wines and spirits they are choosing are the ‘Best Value’. As CWSA Judges are known as the most respected buyers based here in Hong Kong and China, the results are trusted - and therefore winning wines and spirits showcasing their CWSA medal stickers are a desirable purchase.’

‘The CWSA Organisation has been overwhelmed by the sheer quality of entrants for this year’s CWSA Best Value’, says Kelly England, President of the China Wine and Spirits Awards organisation. ‘The most highly regarded brands in the world understand that giving the ‘best value’ to buyers means a great deal. For a consumer, it can also be a matter of ‘saving face’ here in China, where consumers want to be certain they are making the smart buying decision. CWSA medals are known for providing the clear professional recommendation.’

We at Caves da Montanha are honored and thank our whole team for their expertise. We are now launching Conde de Serpa wine, Licor Nacional liqueur and Montanha sparkling wine in China and other international markets and we expect this recognition to help leveraging our expansion abroad.
