Every winery has made some very interesting wines; the quality of wines has improved tremendously in the last 5 years. And I think, Indian Wine Industry is on the way up and in the next 20-30 years, we will know the name of Indian wines throughout the world. India Wine Awards is playing a significant role in establishing the credibility of Indian and international wines to that regard.
