As the main wine writer for Wine Xin – The Blabber and the sole proprietor of Wine Xin, Wai Xin is often spotted in tasting sessions with an unassuming attitude, always open to opinions from trade and consumers.
For his effort and commitment in coaching CSW candidates, Wai Xin had received the award for Achieving Continuous Education (ACE) by WineCraft Marketing & Services. Some of these candidates includes sommeliers, food writer and retailers.
His wine communication and wine knowledge brought him to the prestigious inaugural Vinitaly International Academy certification course. In 2015 he was certified as Italian Wine Ambassador, and Italian Wine Expert in 2016. These achievements made him the first for Singapore, and only in Southeast Asia. Previously he was bestowed the Trinchero Napa Valley Ambassador for his ongoing support for Californian wines.
Believing strongly that wine is for enjoyment and not a trading commodity, he encourages sensible, affordable drinking and exploration of lesser-known wines.
