All Things Nice, in association with ProWein, hosted the second edition of Celebrating India’s Finest Wines at Le Pain Quotidien recently. It celebrated the winners of the second edition of the Indian Wine Consumer’s Choice Awards, held earlier this year. The winners were chosen via blind tasting of every wine produced in India. The judges scored the wines without knowing their brands or prices, but only the variety of grape that they were drinking. On the basis of these scores, gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded.
The event was attended by over 200 people, who, besides drinking India’s best wines, interacted with winery representatives. Besides members of the All Things Nice community, it was attended by Jyoti Narang of the Taj Group of Hotels, Parveen Chander of TajMahal Palace and Towers, Gauri Devidayal of The Table, Stanley Evans of Porsche, Rajeev Samant of Sula Vineyards, Kiran and Yatin Patil of Reveilo, Deepak Roy of Grover Zampa and Ravi Gurnani of York Winery, among others.
Apart from the winery tables, the event had a large community table, loaded with cheese produced by such Indian producers as The Cheese Collective and The Spotted Cow. Fortune Gourmet Specialties added imported charcuterie and olives to the spread. Le Pain Quotidien was the hospitality partner for this event. Michael Degen, executive director, Messe Dusseldorf (the company responsible for putting ProWein together), flew in from Germany for the event.
He was joined by Xavier Rebello, executive director, Messe Dusseldorf, India, said, “India has some fabulous wines, which we are keen to exhibit at the international level. This was the perfect platform, not only for tasting, but also networking with the wine makers and consumers,” Degen said.
“We’re glad to have created a platform to showcase Indian wine and to celebrate it. We believe that consumers in India are getting more aware and Celebrating India’s Finest and the Indian Wine Consumers’ Choice awards have succeeded in creating an independent list of India’s finest wines chosen by wine drinking consumers themselves,” said Nikhil Agarwal, sommelier and director, All Things Nice.
This is the first time in India’s wine history that a global exhibition has partnered with an Indian company to showcase Indian wines in the country, further enhancing the vision that they are gaining momentum and need the right avenues to show consumers just how good they are getting. The next edition of The Indian Wine Consumers’ Choice Awards is slated to take place in January 2015 in Mumbai.
