Sonal enjoys being on the judging panel of some of the world’s leading wine competitions.

On home turf, she is the Chairperson of India Wine Awards, the country’s most authoritative wine competition. She believes wine judging is a gratifying experience because it allows the wine to express not just how worthy it is, but also who might enjoy it and for what occasions.

“Judging is merely a word for what in reality is, appreciating a wine for what it is and where
it truly belongs.”
