The Sommeliers Selection 2017

Well done to our winners in the category of “Economically Savvy Wine by the Glass” - Whites

It is with much pride to announce that our Botha Kelder 2014 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay was selected for the 2017 Sommeliers Selection Wine List. The awards took place yesterday at the Hofmeyer Hall in Stellenbosch.

The Sommeliers Selection Wine Competition has revolutionized local wine competitions. It is a competition with a difference, as it is judged solely by top South African Sommeliers. Winning wines, referred to as “Listed Wines” will be listed on the sought-after Sommeliers Selection wine list. This wine list will be distributed countrywide to trade and restaurants.

The South African Champion Young Wine 2017 awards ceremony was held last night.
Botha Kelder was awarded Champion Other White Cultivar, for their Nouvelle. Huge congratulations to our Winemakers and their team! We are beaming with pride!
