Nedbank Green Wine Awards – Honouring producers who conserve the winelands

Green Wine Awards Routemap

The Green Wine Awards also saw the launch of the new Nedbank Green Wine Winners Route in asociation with Cape Town Green Map.

The Green Wine Awards, now in their eighth year and Africa’s only wine competition recognizes and honours wine producers who continue to play an integral role in the provision of ecofriendly wines, which embody farming for the future practices. The awards also seek to celebrate wine producers who are passionate about conserving the land while making greener, finer wines and lowering their carbon footprint.   The Nedbank Green Wine Winners Route launched at the Awards ceremony, includes the 2016 winners as well as estates that have won Awards since 2011. This makes the map an indispensible guide to access these award winning estates in four distinct areas: Cape Town, West Coast, Cape Winelands and the Overberg.   This year over 120 wines were judged across two categories (Best wines made from Organically Grown Grapes and Best Wines from Integrated Production of Wine category), by the panel led by internationally renowned wine judge Fiona McDonald.   Fifteen top achievers were announced at this year’s awards function held on the 20th October in Cape Town (*see winners list below). Earthbound Cabernet Sauvignon Organic 2015 took top honours as the Best Wine Overall in the Organically Grown Grapes category while Paul Cluver Noble Late Harvest 2014 unanimously scooped the Best Integrated Production of Wine Overall.   The full results and a competition overview are available in South Africa’s Green Wine Guide 2016, bagged with the November issue of Getaway, which is on sale from 24 October. Results are also available here   The Cape Town Green Map - Nedbank Green Wine Award Winners Route - is an invaluable add-on to the Green Wine Guide.   Use the map to discover delicious red and white wines, good food, great walks, places to stay and unique cultural experiences, all in exceptionally spectacular landscapes that put the environment first.   The Nedbank Green Wine Route Map published in 2015, focused on vitners that are WWF Conservation Champions -and remains a usefull guide to these premier estates. This Green Wine Map was an international first.   Green wine celebrates friendship. It’s made to share with friends. It welcomes people to connect in the shared interest of how it’s made. And most importantly, its friendly to the environment. Come and discover this for yourselves!   Wine enthusiasts will be able to sample the winning wines from the 2016 Nedbank Green Wine Awards in Cape Town and Johannesburg in November.
