Diners Club Winemakers for 2016 announced at La Residence

A seriously glitzy affair is the Diners Club Winemaker of the Year.  La Residence has apparently been voted in the Top 4 best hotels in the world, so not too shabby a venue!  It was a tense affair not knowing who the winners were, and there was palpable disappointment by those who had not won, but also hearty support and congratulations to those who did! The Diners Club Winemaker of 2016 went to Pierre Wahl, who has garnered several awards for his wines at Rijks in Tulbagh, and owner Neville Dorrington must be very proud to have this latest bling awarded to Pierre and the wines there. This time for the 2014 Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc.  The Young Winemaker for 2016 is no stranger to the title - and Murray Barlow is a deserved winner for his Red Blend - The Rustenberg RM Nicholson 2015.  Well done to all and what a glam affair it was!
