Iodsa presents veritas top performersJune 11, 2015
Veritas, South Africa’s oldest and most esteemed competition for market ready wines, is celebrating 25 years of excellence in 2015. It is widely regarded as the most authoritative wine show for consumers, with the availability of at least 1 200 bottles to the public being an important criterion for winning wines. Backed by a stringent judging system, the Veritas emblem has garnered a reputation as a leading indicator of quality for wine buyers over more than two decades.
In the run-up to this year’s competition and to celebrate the monumental milestone, Veritas will be presenting a series of exclusive tastings in various towns in the Cape wine lands. Expect warm Boland hospitality at these events, which will take visitors on a journey through the history of the competition with an outstanding selection of classic Veritas gold and double gold winning wines. The tastings will be presented by members of the Veritas executive board, who are all well-known and respected figures in the South African wine industry, at the following venues:
Paarl – 26 May at the Boys High clubhouse at 19:00. The presenter will be Charles Hopkins, Veritas chairperson and cellar master at De Grendel.
