The China Wine and Spirits Awards (CWSA, Chinese:中国环球葡萄酒及烈酒大奖赛) wine and spirits competition is the biggest wine competition in Hong Kong and China.[1][2]

CWSA Judges together sell 75 million bottles of wine and spirits per year, making CWSA the most influential wine and spirits awards in the world.[3] The competition is focused on finding wines and spirits for the Chinese market. The wines and spirits are judged by 100 Chinese wine and spirits buyers; Importers, Distributors, Retailers. Producers looking to expand into the Chinese market, and those already in the market enter their products for judging.

Wines are blind tasted.[4] The competition holds two competitions per year. Every Spring, China Wine and Spirits Best Value is held, the blind tasting is held by price range and wines and spirits that offer good value are awarded. The China Wine and Spirits Awards (CWSA) is held in Autumn and entrants are judged to find the best wines and spirits for the Chinese market. The awards receive entries from producers from more than 55 wine-producing countries.[5]
