“The newly launched Wynn Signature Chinese Wine Awards aim to promote outstanding Chinese wines and showcase Macao and Wynn’s world-class hospitality. As the independent hotel brand earning the most Forbes Travel Guide Five-star Awards worldwide, we follow the most authoritative and professional wine grading system. We have created the much-anticipated awards ceremony to serve as a global platform to allow wine experts from various regions in China to collaborate, exchange knowledge and promote Chinese wines on a larger international stage, enhancing the reputation of Chinese premium wineries in the world. This also expands the target regional markets for Chinese products,” says Linda Chen, President, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of Wynn Macau.

“Through leveraging Macao’s strong position as the Creative City of Gastronomy and capitalising on the city’s role as the World Centre of Tourism and Leisure, we gather the top Chinese wineries and quality wine industry stakeholders to showcase the edge of Chinese brands. Together, we contribute to the Macao’s tourism development with enhanced productivity,” adds Chen.

Wynn says that a panel of 27 internationally acclaimed wine judges, including seven Masters of Wines, three Master Sommeliers, winemakers, educators, journalists, hoteliers and wine buyers, conducted a series of intensive blind tastings assessing more than 700 submissions gathered from nearly 200 premium wineries to choose the winners.

“Fine wines paired with exquisite delicacies are the essence for a banquet. As the Creative City of Gastronomy, Macao offers a rich culture of gastronomy. MGTO is pleased to see that Macao’s integrated tourism and leisure enterprises are proactively organising a wide range of events and activities together with their industry peers. This strengthens Macao’s position as the City of Gastronomy and enriches its offerings as a world centre of tourism and leisure, thereby promoting sustainable development of Macao’s tourism industry and related industries,” says Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, Director of the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO).

The statement adds that winemakers also competed for the Wynn Signature Best Wine of China Trophy as well as an additional 23 trophies spread across three divisions, namely Wynn Signature Trophies, Varietals Champion Trophies and Regional Champion Trophies.

The organisers say that these three special divisions honour China’s most talented winemakers while recognising the breadth of major varietal expressions and regionality in China. Each trophy recipient is distinguished with a ‘Best in Class’ ranking and sets the benchmark for unsurpassed excellence in their respective category.

Wynn says as a part of its plan to elevate China’s fine wines and premium winemakers, it will host Wynn Signature Chinese Wine Month’ promotion in May, a celebration of Chinese wine excellence with a symphony of global gastronomy

Throughout the month, guests can experience specially curated wine pairing tasting menus at Wynn’s prestigious dining venues, including Chef Tam’s Seasons, Lakeview Palace, SW Steakhouse and Mizumi at Wynn Palace as well as Golden Flower, Wing Lei, Lakeside Trattoria and Mizumi at Wynn Macau.

The statement adds that for a casual alternative, visitors can also participate in tasting flights featuring the prizewinning wines at Wynn’s various bars, including Palace Reserve Club, Cinnebar, Bar Cristal and Wing Lei Bar.
