Top 100 thought it timely to publish a feature article written by acclaimed MW and Top 100 judge Greg Sherwood, entitled:  ‘South African Fine Wine Comes of Age’.  We share Greg’s sentiments fully. According to research:  “A seismic shift in the international perception of South African fine wine is taking place among wine merchants and brokers in global markets.” Click here for the full story.

Global wine leader,'s Rebecca Gibb, a Louis Roederer Emerging Wine Writer of the Year winner, reviewed the 2013 Top 100 Challenge and results.  This brought additional world-wide weight, traffic and attention to the Top 100 website and brand, to the Challenge results, as well as to winning wines.  Great news for wineries given that is the world’s most effective global engine to aid finding and buying fine wine!
