Interview- The SIWC was superbly organized

Steven Spurrier internationally renowned wine expert and chairman of the Sommelier India Wine Competition looks back on the inaugural Sommelier India Wine Competition and tells Brinda Gill why he considered it a success

How was the Sommelier India Wine Competition decided upon?
I put the idea to Reva Singh (Publisher and Editor, Sommelier India) and David Banford (Director, The Wine Society of India) about nine months back. At that time we were under the impression that the India Wine Challenge was not going to happen, and I thought we should have a competition to fill the gap. It was only later that the IWC came to be scheduled. However Robert Joseph and I are good friends and we are relaxed about it.
