KWV takes great pride to be counted among the very best of South Africa’s wines in the annual Platter’s by Diners Club South African Wine Guide 2021. With only a handful of wineries that can claim the coveted 5-Star rating in this wine guide, KWV is honoured to announce that four of its wines, and six of its brandies, achieved this outstanding accolade.
"It is such a big honour; I am almost at a loss for words." This was what an elated Izele van Blerk, The Mentors winemaker at KWV, said when it was announced that her team had secured the coveted Veritas Vertex Award for The Mentors Orchestra 2018 at the annual Veritas Awards this weekend. This spectacular Bordeaux-style red blend is the first red wine to be announced as this competition's overall champion wine, from almost 1 300 entries received In a momentous conclusion to a particularly challenging year, the Veritas Wine Awards also announced KWV as the country’s top achieving cellar.
