The Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show

The Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show single night public tastings in Cape Town and Johannesburg ‘are great occasions to see what’s hot in the wine scene’.  

Approximately 100 wines—all achieving silver, gold and trophy medals in the 2015 judging—will be available for tasting and ordering at show prices.  All wines on show have come to the fore from over 1 000 competition entries, judged blind by a panel of international and local judges and ultimately receiving the nod as ‘superlative and world-class wines of distinction’. 

The Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show enjoys a 13-year tradition as South Africa’s most authoritative and prestigious wine competition.  With the announcement of the results on 27 May, some highlights will be the heralding of the Most Successful Producer of the year, Best White and Best Red Wines of the Show and the International Judges’ Award.  Known for creating a platform for lesser-known labels, the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show public tastings will include the Discovery of the Show—awarded to the best value wine of the year.
