It’s time once again for the annual Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show and, as always, it promises to ignite the taste buds and excite the senses!
Everyone – from the young guns to the lunatic fringe and the most dedicated, methodical winemakers – is paying so much more attention to what they’re doing. We are really seeing much better wines being made, even in difficult vintages.
Michael Fridjhon, Chairman of the Judges
