• Wildekrans receives two Double Golds at The Michelangelo Awards

    The results of the 24th Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards were announced via an online function on Friday 2nd October at 16h00.

    With over 1500 entries this year, and a total of 615 awards presented, this competition is an important benchmark for producers targeting international markets to determine how their wines will be received abroad, and locally. The panel of judges are hand-picked wine experts representing all 7 continents and entries are judged blind.

    We received the wonderful news that two of our wines were awarded Double Gold medals this year:-

    We are most grateful for this recognition.
