* [Reference] What is Japan Winery Award(R)︎? *
Every year, national and regional judges evaluate wineries that produce Japanese wine in Japan and meet certain standards set by the Japan Winery Award Council.
* [Examination method] *
Local and national judges will carefully select wineries worthy of recognition from the target wineries, and all judges will discuss and decide.
* [Subject to review]*
In principle, domestic wineries that have been established for at least five years are eligible for review. In 2023, 319 venues nationwide will be eligible.
*It is said that high-quality grapes for wine can be harvested at least three years after the grapes are planted, and at least five years after the planting, taking into account the aging period of the wine produced.
*Wineries with multiple brewing facilities under the same corporation are basically considered as one winery. Also, if they have the same capital but are separate corporations, each is basically considered an independent winery.
*Concerning contract brewing wineries, wineries with a production history of five years or more and producing at least 1,000 bottles (750ml equivalent) per year of the latest vintage will be subject to review.
* [Judgment criteria] *
・Are there any variations in quality depending on the style, such as red or white?
・Does it have an excellent balance of complexity and concentration, and is noble?
・Is there a sense of stability in quality regardless of the year of harvest? ・Can the terroir be expressed?
・Is it cost-effective?
-Does the wine have a consistent character?
* 【judge】*
Rather than evaluating the quality of individual brands through tasting, we seek an evaluation of the winery as a whole.
For this reason, judges must not only have excellent tasting ability and be familiar with wines from around the world, but also must, in principle, meet one of the following conditions for at least 10 years. [1] Representative or purchaser of a liquor store that handles a wide range of Japanese wines
[2] Representative or purchaser of a restaurant that handles a wide range of Japanese wines
[3] Persons who have written or written articles regarding Japanese wine * [Reference] -About the Japan Winery Award Council, a general incorporated association-*
