Peter Kwok, founder of Vignobles K Group that owns seven estates in Bordeaux, has won the Asian Personality Award 2018, given out by the drinks business Hong Kong and Vinexpo. He was recognised for his pioneering venture in Bordeaux, where for more than 20 years ago he has helped preserve and transform the landscape of the famous wine region, particularly in the Right Bank, where the Hong Kong businessman owns seven estates in Pomerol and Saint Emilion. Kwok (centre) received the award on 30 May from Guillaume Deglise, outgoing Vinexpo CEO, and Ivy Ng, publisher of the drinks business Hong Kong.

More than 100 guests attended the Asian Personality Award announcement ceremony, eager to find out which heavyweight in Asia’s wine industry was given this prestigious accolade. Launched in 2012, the Asian Personality Award aims to recognise one outstanding individual who has positively transformed the wine trade industry within Asian and beyond. Previous recipients included Grace Vineyards’ CEO, Judy Chan, in 2012, Vincent Cheung, grand master of the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Asia, in 2014, and the creators of the hugely popular manga series The Drops of God, Yuko and Shin Kibayashi, in 2016.
