Gold Wine Awards 2018 reveals Great Value Wines after two days of intense tasting

It was an intense two days of sniffing, swirling and spitting for a team of wine lovers, to select the best value wines in South Africa. The Gold Wine Awards is a consumerjudged competition that endeavours to put a seal of excellence on wines delivering quality at a reasonable price, thereby guiding the wine buying public. The double blind tasting was audited by Theron du Plessis Chartered & Professional Accountants (SA) of Somerset West.

The food and drinks sector is experiencing high inflation, making a value driven competition more valuable to the wine buying public. The Gold Wine Awards assists wine lovers, making it easier to make more informed wine buying choices. This year entries showed good growth, which is a sure indicator of the importance that this competition is garnering in the industry.

South Africa, as a global rising star in the value for money wine bracket, should not be underestimated, and as usual the best wineries always seem to come through. Consumers who enjoy a wine bargain will be in good cheer as the Gold Wine Awards 2018 reveals the

Top 5 EWP (Excellent Wine at the Price) brands.

La Couronne Wine Estate was awarded the Gold for La Couronne Chenin Blanc on 3 August 2018.

We are proud of our Winemaker Henk and his team.
