Three PIWOSA wineries make the cut!

Posted on 29 March 2016 under PIWOSA News

South Africa’s Top 20 Wine Producers, according to a panel of local and international wine professionals, were announced last week after a rigorous round of voting. Those whose votes were counted are as follows:

  • Sommeliers: Gareth Ferreira; Neil Grant; Higgo Jacobs; Pearl Oliver; Francois Rautenbach
  • Retailers: Carrie Adams; Roland Peens; James Pietersen
  • Local writers and critics: Hennie Coetzee; Michael Crossley; Pieter “Kwispedoor” de Klerk; Christian Eedes; Michael Fridjhon; Edo Heyns; Tim James; Angela Lloyd; Cathy Marston; Ingrid Motteux; Christine Rudman; Cathy van Zyl
  • Foreign writers and critics: Tim Atkin; Tom Cannavan; Jamie Goode; Matthew Jukes; Neal Martin; Greg Sherwood; Chris Waters

Interestingly this year’s results show 5 new entrants to the Top 20 list and only five of the original Top 20 from the first published 2001 list retaining a spot.

We could not be more delighted to have three PIWOSA wineries, namely Paul Cluver, Klein Constantia and Jordan, featured with Paul Cluver listed in the Top 10.
