A total of 276 wines were entered this year, with judging performed by a panel of experts who are regularly exposed to all the wines from our districts. The experienced panel initially taste blind to test quality and then rank entrants in the finals where the regional winners compete. This year’s judges were Duimpie Bayly, Karen Glanfield, Neil Ellis, Andrea Freeborough, Carmen Stevens, Samarie Smith and David Biggs.

Congratulations to our winemaker Stander Maass & the entire team at Fort Simon.
