Packwood Wine and Country Estate has received a Bronze in the International Wine and Spirit Competition 2013 for their 2012 Sauvignon Blanc! Only yesterday, the same wine won the Michelangelo International Wine Competition.
Founded in 1969, the IWSC is considered to be the most prestigious competition of its kind in the world. The results, announced at the inaugural Beautiful South Tasting on Wednesday, 11th and Thursday 12th September, mark the 44th year of the Competition.
Hosted by Wines of Chile, Wines of Argentina and Wines of South Africa, this tasting event was a unique place to showcase wine from these regions, and for the IWSC to announce their results. The awards given by the competition are believed to be among some of the highest honours in the industry.
Judging for the competition is unique in that it has two stages; first, the products are tasted blind by expert panels, selected from over 300 fully experienced and qualified industry judges. Then, products which receive the top medals are subject to technical analysis before results are released; this crucial stage ensures winners receive complete validation.
Packwood Wine and Country Estate is situated in Harkerville, between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, set in a stunning location with views across 1000’s of acres of green pastures, magical mountains and distant ocean.
Packwood house and cottages offer a unique 4-star self-catering option ideal for family and friends.
Escape to the country to sip and savour their Cheese and Wine lunches using produce from the vineyard, dairy and garden.
