130 wineries participate in 6th Indian Wine Consumer’s Choice Awards
All Things Nice organised the sixth edition of the Indian Wine Consumer’s Choice Awards, popularly known as IWCCA, on 13th January 2018 at Sofitel Mumbai BKC. This event is aimed at giving Indian consumers an opportunity to judge the best Indian wines available in the country.
This annual accreditation, a brainchild of sommelier Nikhil Agarwal, CEO, All Things Nice, helps consumers understand new vintages and wines launched in the market, besides getting an insight about the different wineries in the burgeoning Indian market.

The process involves bringing together all domestically produced wines in the premium category and categorising into a systematic tastings session. Various wine consumers are then invited to blind-taste and judge the wine. Winners in each category will be announced through the All Things Nice website and other media channels. They will be accredited with IWCCA Gold, Silver and Bronze certifications and medals. 130 India wineries participated in the 6th edition of IWCCA.
“IWCCA has established itself as the go-to-guide for consumers and the HORECA trade who are interested in discovering Indian wine and brings to light brands that deserve recognition. It continues to create an independent list of quality wines chosen by consumers themselves. We are happy that wine enthusiasts from over 10 countries were part of the judging panel giving the competition a global palate,” said Agarwal.
In February, the winning wines will be showcased to all consumers at ‘Celebrating India’s Finest’ also hosted by All Things Nice.
