Paul John Takes its first South African Awards

29 September 2018

The Michelangelo International Wine and Spirits Awards was established in 1997 as the only international wine competition in South Africa. The competition is unique in South Africa, in that all judges are hand-picked wine experts, representing all seven continents around the globe. Since the start of the Michelangelo, more than 165 different judges from 43 countries have served on the panels.

The Michelangelo International Wine ans Spirits Awards of South Africa is a totally independent competition and is mainly self-funded. Their primary objective remains to support local wine makers who are targeting international markets for exports and, through their international judges, are able to determine whether their wines will be well received both abroad and locally.

This year competition  received 2255 entries of wine, brandy and liqueur and other spirits entries were from both South Africa and international producers around the globe. These were judged blind by panels of 5 judges, using the 100-point international OIV system.
