“It is a great honour to be singled out in a region with so much winemaking talent – if you work hard you will reap the benefits, never give up,” said Michiel Visser. “The awards are a great initiative for our area and encourage us to live our passion.”

The independent judging panel has five members who all taste the wines blind where after the Top 5 wines in each category are selected.
