2018年酒飲商務亞洲大獎獲獎名單

20th November, 2018 by Natalie Wang


這是第二屆亞洲酒飲商務的獲獎名單,該獎項表彰了2018年塑造和改變亞洲飲料行業的主要公司和人物。


頒獎典禮於11月9日在香港國際葡萄酒及烈酒展覽會的開幕式上(Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair)舉行,由酒飲商務總編葡萄酒大師帕特里克•施密特(Patrick Schmitt)主持。一共有來自亞太地區酒飲行業的含營銷、品牌和管理等方面的11位獲獎者。


今年,近100位嘉賓出席了在萬麗海景酒店舉行的頒獎典禮,向所有獲獎者祝賀,並與亞洲葡萄酒及烈酒行業的主要意見領袖交流。


獲獎的公司包含澳大利亞葡萄酒巨頭(Treasury wine Estates)、保樂力加(Pernod Ricard)、大中華區主要的酒商嘉裏酒業(Kerry Wines, Shanghai)和中糧酒業(COFCO wine & wine)。獲獎的個人包含中國第一位侍酒大師呂楊和中國怡園酒莊(Grace Vineyard)的董事長陳芳。


評選標準是由一個專家小組通過在葡萄酒貿易,存儲服務,金融和教育方面進行兩天的綜合評估,今年的獎項也反映了自2008年香港葡萄酒免税之後亞洲葡萄酒貿易的10年發展,包括我們能看到的以Ginsberg+Chan為代表的酒商。


這些獎項的獲得者還證明了那些致力於長期願景的公司是如何繼續蓬勃發展的,比如越南的精品葡萄酒等新公司通過巧妙的社交媒體活動為市場注入了新的活力,以促進越南新興的葡萄酒產業。


年度女性人物大獎

獲獎者:陳芳,怡園酒莊董事長


陳女士出生於香港,2002年,年僅24歲的她離開了投行,從父親手中接過了位於山西的怡園酒莊。此後,她將怡園酒莊發展成為被國際認可的品牌,也成為了中國精品酒的佼佼者。


她帶領怡園酒莊,在提升葡萄酒品質上不斷探索,為中國家族式精品酒莊建立了成功可行的商業模式。從旗艦紅葡萄酒“深藍”(Deep Blue)到頂級紅葡萄酒“莊主珍藏”(Chairman ' s Reserve),再到最近推出的一系列起泡酒,該酒莊生產的葡萄酒已經出現在全國各大餐廳和星級酒店的葡萄酒清單上,並出口到海外。今年,她通過在香港交易所(Hong Kong Stock Exchange)公開上市,為自己的公司掀開了新的篇章,實現更透明化和制度化的管理。


毫無疑問,評委們相信陳女士是中國快速發展的葡萄酒行業裏女性企業家的典範。她的成就不僅提升了中國葡萄酒的聲譽,還向外界證明了中國能釀出好酒的能力和潛力。


陳女士在2012年榮獲“亞洲葡萄酒商業年度風雲人物”,她再次證明了她是年度女性人物大獎最實至名歸的獲獎者。

年度男性人物大獎

獲獎者:呂楊 侍酒大師


在這個備受矚目的獎項類別中,呂楊脱穎而出。他不僅是中國年輕且有抱負的侍酒師,也展示出了難得的風度和謙遜。


去年8月,呂楊成為第一個獲得侍酒大師頭銜的中國人,加入了一個全球人數不足250人的團體。


他還負責管理香格里拉酒店及度假村的葡萄酒項目和侍酒師團隊。在上海半島酒店侍酒師工作三年之後,他成為首位在酒店行業獲得如此高頭銜的中國人。


他是許多侍酒師比賽的冠軍,也是一位熱心的葡萄酒教育家。他創辦了自己的葡萄酒教育學院歸普學院(Grapea Institute),決心在中國各地培養更多有激情的葡萄酒愛好者。


作為WSET學位級文憑持有者,他是WSET傑出校友獎的提名者之一。2007年畢業於尼亞加拉學院(Niagara College),獲得了葡萄栽培和釀酒學位。2012年,呂楊獲得了布林傑夫人獎學金(Madame Bollinger scholarship),成為中國大陸第一個葡萄酒碩士研究生。


作為一位中國經典樂器古琴的愛好者,年輕時還是重金屬音樂的粉絲,現在可以直接説葡萄酒奠定了他的職業生涯。

THE DRINKS BUSINESS ASIAN AWARDS 2018: THE WINNERS

20th November, 2018 by Natalie Wang

Here we present all the winners in the second-edition of the drinks business Asian Awards, which recognised the leading companies and personalities that have shaped and changed Asia’s drinks industry in 2018.

Hosted by the drinks business editor-in-chief Patrick Schmitt MW on 9 November during the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair, the awards ceremony feted the recipients of 11 awards across categories that included marketing, branding and leadership from key drinks trade members throughout Asia Pacific.

This year, close to 100 guests attended the Awards at the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel to toast all winners and network with key decision-makers in the wine and spirits industry here in Asia.

Prominent companies including Australian wine giant Treasury Wine Estates, drinks company Pernod Ricard, Greater China’s leading wine merchants such as Kerry Wines (Shanghai) and COFCO Wine & Wine were among some of the top winners at the awards ceremony. Key figures in China including the country’s first Chinese Master Sommelier Lu Yang and Judy Chan, the chairwoman of China’s Grace Vineyard, were among the personality awards winners.

Judged by a panel of experts in the wine trade, storage service, finance and eduction sectors over a period of two days, the awards this year reflected the 10-year evolution of Asian’s wine trade after Hong Kong’s removal of wine tax in 2008, epitomised by Ginsberg+Chan – as will be seen.

From left to right: Representative from COFCO Wine & Wine; Chris Thompson of Elite Wines Vietnam; Eddie McDougall of The Flying Winemaker; Trent Heung, Terry Wong, Many Chan and Ken Man from Ginsberg & Chan; Linden Wilkie of The Fine Wine Experience; Tommy Tse of Treasury Wine Estates, Andrew Walsh of Treasury Wine Estates, Yuki Lo from Kerry Wines HK, Jean Marc Dizerens of Shangri-la Hotels, and Kaiko Cheng of Cru World Wine.

The awards recipients also proved how dedicated companies that are invested in the longterm vision continue to thrive, with new players such as Vietnam’s Elite Wines injecting new life into the market with smart social media campaigns to grow Vietnam’s emerging wine scene.

Woman of the Year  

Winner: Judy Chan, President of Grace Vineyard in China 

Born in Hong Kong, Judy Chan took over Shanxi-based Grace Vineyard from her father in 2002 at the tender age of 24. Since then she has turned Grace Vineyard into both a globally recognised brand and a flagship for Chinese fine wine.

Not only has she improved the quality of her wines, but she has built a successful and viable business model for a boutique family winery in China. Producing wines from  flagship red blend ‘Deep Blue’ to top wine ‘Chairman’s Reserve’ and most recently a range of sparkling wines, the winery’s wines are seen on the wine lists of major restaurants and hotels across the country, and are exported abroad. This year, she opened another chapter for her company by publicly listing it on Hong Kong Stock Exchange to achieve greater transparency and corporate governance.

Without any doubt, the judges believe Judy Chan is a role model for female entrepreneurs in China’s fast growing wine industry and beyond. Her achievement is not only confined to lifting the reputation of Chinese wine, but also proving to the outside world what’s possible and the promises that it holds.

A recipient of the drinks business Asian Wine Personality of the Year award in 2012, Chan has proven once again why she’s the most worthy recipient of our Woman of the Year award.

Man of the Year 

Winner: Lu Yang MS 

With stronger than ever submissions in this much-coveted award category, this year’s award goes to Lu Yang who has not only broken ground for young and aspiring sommeliers in China but has shown it can be done with grace and humility.

In August last year, Lu became the first Chinese to achieve the title of Master Sommelier, joining a group that numbers less than 250 people worldwide.

He’s also charged with overseeing the wine programmes and sommelier team at Shangri-la Hotels and Resorts, following a three-year stint at Peninsula Shanghai’s hotel sommelier, making him the first Chinese citizen to hold such a senior position in the hospitality industry.

Champions of many sommelier competitions, he’s also an avid wine educator. Having founded his own wine school, Grapea Institute, he’s determined to nurture more motivated wine lovers across China.

A WSET diploma holder, he was one of the nominees for WSET’s Outstanding Alumni Award. Graduating with a viticulture and winemaking degree at Niagara College in 2007, Lu went on to become the first Master of Wine Candidate from mainland China in 2012 after winning the Madame Bollinger scholarship.

A lover of Chinese classical music Gu Qin (pronounced Koo Ching) and a fan of heavy metal music in much younger days, it’s safe to say that wine sets the tone of his professional career now.
