Calitzdorp Cellar an SA Champion
The Calitzdorp wine cellar was awarded the SA Champion Dessert Wine and class winner for their Hanepoot Jerepigo , and class winner for the White Muscadel and Golden Jerepigo at the Young Wine Show 2017.
The cellar also walked away with one gold medal, three silver medals and seven bronze medals. The South African Young Wine Show, presented annually by the South African National Wine Show Association (SANWSA), gives winemakers the opportunity to showcase the best wines of the current vintage.
The Show was held for the first time in 1833 and is the oldest in the Southern Hemisphere and probably the oldest wine show in the world. It was founded by the Cape of Good Hope Agricultural Society in 1833. The first show was held in the Company’s Garden in Cape Town.
