Wine of Origin proudly South African10 Apr 2018
In the March issue of Wineland magazine, Bernard Mocke wrote about legends in the wine industry who also helped shape KWV and who had an impact on the wine industry. One of them is Danie de Wet of Robertson, who put a lot of emphasis on South Africa’s Wine of Origin (WO) system which was initiated in 1972 and implemented in 1973.
"The Novare SA Terroir Wine Awards honours the wines which truly portray South Africa´s different wine growing areas. South Africa´s strict Wine of Origin rules for those producers who want to produce the terrain where the grapes come from on the label, made it possible to create this unique wine competition. Most entries are from the cellars´ boutique, reserve and ultra premium ranges...”
