The Michelangelo International Wine Awards was created in 1997 by Lorraine Immelman, who identified a need for an international competition with judges from abroad and only one local judge. The aim was to identify wines that would do well internationally.
Since the inception of the competition 16 years ago, a total of 160 judges from 37 countries have served on the panels. The Michelangelo International Wine Awards is seen as one of the most influential and reputable competitions in the industry. For the last four consecutive years the competition annually received in the region of 1,500 entries.

GRAN D'OR - Rijk's Private Cellar Chenin Blanc 2009 
GOLD - Rijk's Touch of Oak Chenin Blanc 2011
