Veritas annually honours a number of wine and brandy personalities for dedicating their lives to the highly enjoyable juice of the vine – for having done notably more than just plant vines and make wine or brandy.
KWV has been crowned as the king of Veritas 2011. Last night (Saturday 8 October) this almost century old wine and brandy company with its headquarters in Paarl, received a remarkable five double gold and nine gold medals at the 2011 Veritas Award ceremony – the most double gold and gold medals ever won by one cellar.
Tasting 1 739 wines and brandies is no mean feat. From 5-12 September nine revered international wine judges, together with more than a 100 local wine gurus, sipped, tasted, contemplated, discussed and reached consensus during the official tasting of this year’s Veritas competition.
