FAQ "Can wines made by men join the Awards?"
Q:Can wines made by men join the Awards?
→A:Yes, you can. We are the competition among wines made by every gender (i.e. not only women), whereas it is judged solely by women. The only exception is the Special Awards "The Best Woman Winemaker" which goes to an item from female winemaker.
Q:May I register wines that are not yet imported into Japan?
→A:Yes, you can. We also will hold a post-competition tasting event exclusive for non-imported awarded wines to increase their exposure in Japan.
