Enter now for this year’s Veritas Awards

Entries for this year’s Veritas Awards are closing soon. Producers who wish to have their choice wines and brandies awarded with the Veritas emblem of excellence, have until 15 Augustus to enter. Late entries will be accepted until 24 August.

The Veritas Awards is South Africa’s foremost wine competition and has been held since 1991 by the SA wine industry. Wine experts and lovers annually look forward to find the country’s very best wines, as a Veritas award is seen as a stamp of quality.

Participants welcomed the amendment that was made last year by the Veritas board to change the availability of each winning wine  to only 50 cases – 300 bottles - (6x750ml) in future instead of 200 cases in the past.

More than 90 international and local wine experts will gather at the Nederburg Auction Complex in Paarl from 17 - 21 September to judge all the entries. The judges are carefully chosen from a broad spectrum of experts in the industry and include winemakers, viticulturists, brandy masters, Cape Wine Masters, journalists, academics, researchers and dealers.

The winning wines and brandies will be announced in the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Saturday 6 October.

The winners of double gold and gold medals will have the opportunity to present their winning wines and brandies at countrywide public tastings in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth in October and November.
