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.
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.
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.
