Since the awards started in 1999, there has been no other property that has won the international award as often as Vergelegen. And once again they have taken the award this year.
According to this article from SouthAfricanGoodNews, if there’s a must-see wine destination in the Cape Winelands then, according to the Great Wine Capitals Tourism Awards, it’s Vergelegen.
Since the awards started in 1999, there have been 3 845 entries and 574 winners. No other property has won the international award as often as Vergelegen.
This year the awards programme, held annually by the Great Wine Capitals Global Network, attracted 359 entries and there were 59 winners.
The entries are from eight of the world’s great wine capitals. These are Bilbao-Rioja in Spain, Bordeaux in France, Mainz/Rheinhessen in Germany, Mondoza in Argentina, Porto in Portugal, San Francisco/ Napa Valley in the United States, Valparaì/ Casablanca Valley in Chile and the Cape Winelands.
“Of course we’re tremendously pleased to be rated alongside some of the best estates in the world again. For us the real importance of the Great Wine Capitals awards programme is that it encourages and recognises wineries which invest in their historic, cultural and natural heritage and share these with visitors,’ says Don Tooth, CEO of Vergelegen.
