All the award-winning wines winning awards are produced with grapes grown in North Bali, either in the company’s own vineyards or from private vineyards involved in management agreements with Hatten Wines.

The CWSA is the biggest & most prestigious wine & spirits competition held in China.

5,375 wine and spirits from 35 countries were blind tasted during the CWSA Tasting Week by 100 Judges, all selected from among leading importers, distributors and retailers working in Hong Kong and China.

American-born and China-based CWSA Judge Richard Howe, commenting on the composition of the tasting panel, said: "I think it’s critical to have buyers as CWSA Judges. We are the buyers in China and we know the taste of the people and what works here. When I see wines with the CWSA medal stickers, I immediately know they are the ones to watch and have been recommended by my Hong Kong and China-based peers.’

The market for imported wine in China is expected to grow 50% in the coming three years, according to National Australian Bank. Other wines that joined Hattens in earning recognition at CWSA 2014 include Diageo's Ian Macleod (Scotland), Chateau Tanunda, Jacob's Creek, Wolf Blass, Taylor's (Australia), Saint Clair Family Estate, Oyster Bay, Waipara Hills (New Zealand), Camus, Châteaux de Lastours, Remy Cointreau, La Cave du Marmandais (France), Citra Vini Consortium (ltaly) and Qingdao Great River Hill Winery (China).

“Being Balinese wines which continue to be awarded in the competition, we are reaffirming the fact that our wines are best match for local food, not only in Indonesia but regionally: Our wines match the Chinese palate, according to these wine professionals. With a total of 7 medals in the 2014 CWSA competition, it’s again a strong affirmation of the quality of Hatten Wines”, says Ida Bagus Rai Budarsa, Founder of Hatten Wines.

"The Medals reward the effort and care we take with our wines at every level," said Hatten's director of sales and marketing, Brett Woodhouse.

The most highly awarded wine in brand’s portfolio is Alexandria that has, over the last 4 years, earned 2 Bronze, 1 Silver and 2 Gold Medal. “This semi sweet wine possesses big potential in the Indonesian wine market, especially for the Indonesian palate, which tends to have a preference for sweet wines,” said James Kalleske, the winemaker at Hatten Wines.

”To be recognized in each category and awarded for each of the Hatten wines is truly an amazing result and only further substantiates that Hatten Wines produced world class wines on a consistent basis,” added Woodhouse.

Defying the popular notion that growing grapes and producing quality wine in the Asian tropics is near impossible, Hatten Wines has managed to establish a successful wine trade while earning international recognition. Founded in 1994 by Ida Bagus Rai Budarsa, Hatten Wines are now found in restaurant across the Republic.

Hatten Wines’ range includes its famous semi-dry Rosé, dry white Aga White, light red Aga Red and the award winning floral Muscat Alexandria. The range also includes a white and rosé sparkling, Tunjung and Jepun named after Bali’s beautiful water lily and frangipani flowers. The Pineau des Charentes method delightfully sweet fortified wines Pino de Bali in red or white, offer a sweet desert wines to Bali’s tables.

In 2007, Hatten Wines has also embarked on another venture, introducing Australian wines to Bali, by importing juices vinified in Bali. The brand Two Islands, reminiscing of the relationship between Bali and Australia, is an Australian palate tailor made collection of wines offered in Bali. The assortment includes a lively and fresh Chardonnay, a floral and fruity Riesling, a ruby red peppery Shiraz and a full-bodied, fruity flavored Cabernet Merlot.

Hatten Wines wine tasting and wine shop, The Cellardoor, is opened 6 days a week at Simpang Siur in Bali, and in Kemang, Jakarta.
