• Big ‘GEES’ for Wines2Whales

    We absolutely love it when it’s Wines2Whales time, and everyone gets a chance to get on their bikes and try the trails, or simply just support and cheer. This year, the very aptly named Pinotage leg passed through Wildekrans, and the theme for the leg was #SeriousGEES (serious festive atmosphere, fun). We certainly gave the theme our all at our ‘water’ point, with wine-tasting and our staff getting wholeheartedly into the spirit!

    If you want to see what GEES actually is (as the English translation of this Afrikaans word simply does not do it justice), then take a look at this fabulous video clip, kindly created by Bigshot Media.

    Thank you to all the supporters, riders and sponsors for such a great event, and well done to everyone who took part – on or off the saddle.

  • A Veritas Double Gold!

    We were really honoured to attend the Veritas Awards on Friday, and our wines did exceptionally well, with every wine we entered winning a medal! We are most proud of the Double Gold we received for our Barrel Select Reserve Pinotage 2016!

    A Double Gold is one of the most sought-after awards. The last time Wildekrans was awarded this honour was in 1995.

    Our other winners were as follows:

    Gold: Barrel Select Reserve Cape Blend 2016

    Silver: MCC Chenin Blanc 2015

    Silver: MCC Brut Rose 2016

    Silver: Barrel Select Reserve Cabernet Franc 2018

    Silver: Barrel Select Reserve Shiraz 2016

    Bronze: Barrel Select Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017

    Bronze: Barrel Select Reserve Pinot Noir 2018

    As cited on their website: ‘Synonymous with excellence in wine and brandy, the Veritas Awards is the longest-running and most prestigious wine and brandy competition in South Africa, dating back to 1991.’

    We thank them for the wonderful recognition.
