And the winners are…..

Miko Red 2010 – Gold Award

Each wine is scored in three different categories: Quality, Value and Packaging and then scored on a 100-point scale. Wines that score 90+ points are awarded Gold medals, those that score 76 to 89 points are awarded Silver medals and Bronze medals are given to those achieving 65 to 75 points.

Not only were we delighted that our Miko Red was awarded Gold, but it was also the only South African wine to win in this year’s awards.

As the competition prides itself on celebrating wines that wine drinkers actually want to buy and enjoy, whether it’s from a shop or ordering from a wine list in a restaurant, winning these awards is a fantastic achievement for our Mont Rochelle vineyard and winery.
