South African Cult Wines make entry into Taiwan mart

The Judgment of Paris, an assessment of wine quality held in 1976 was a great milestone for America, because it showed that California wine was much better than French wine. California Cult Wines have become famous in the world inspired by the Judgment of Paris. Zelma Long, a winemaker from Vilafonte Winery in South Africa, held another Judgment of Harrisburg in Pennsylvania in 2007.
The scale of this 2007 assessment was much bigger than the 1976 one. Many wine professionals attended the activity that sought to judge the quality of California and South African wine. It was easy to understand that the organizer wanted to promote South African wine and raise its prestige.
The Judgment of Harrisburg awarded an extra 0.5 points to California's Bryant Family wine. South Africa's Vilafonte and De Toren wine got a similar verdict confirming its interna-tional standing.
As the first importer of Californian Cult Wines to the Taiwan market, Chateau Wine & Spirits Company understands the extraordinary quality of wine from South Africa. The winery limits its annual production in order to guarantee quality. Therefore, the Wine Spectator, a professional magazine focused on wine, also recognizes its quality.
