Our 5 silver medals place us amongst the most consistent and successful producers at this prestigious and globally recognized competition. We are almost certainly one of the newest, smallest and most modestly resourced winery to achieve such a haul of medals – a testimony to our persistence and to the team – our “Painted Wolf Pack”. These awards come on the back of a number of other accolades over the past few months, including a 4* award for Guillermo Pinotage 2009 in Wine Magazine
This year there were more than 12,000 entries, with judges awarding regional trophies, medals (gold, silver and bronze) and commendations. One-fifth of the world’s Masters of Wine were present to judge the awards.
