Things to do
Sip, sip hooray! We’re thrilled that 3 of our Mont Rochelle wines have won Gold and Bronze medals at the London Wine Competition 2019.
And the winners are…..
Miko Red 2010 – Gold Award
Miko White 2016 – Bronze Award
Syrah 2015 – Bronze Award
The awards are the ultimate seal of approval in the global wine industry. There’s a judging panel of 11 Masters of Wine, including many senior Sommeliers from some of London’s most accredited restaurants, buyers and traders.
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.
To discover our award-winning Mont Rochelle wines book a stay or do your very own tasting at home as our wines are also available to buy online.
