Michelangelo Awards: a night of luxury and celebration!
Every year, the Michelangelo Wine Awards recognises and honors the finest wines in South Africa. This prestigious competition has become a symbol of excellence in the winemaking industry, showcasing the skill, dedication, and passion of winemakers.
What are the Michelangelo Wine Awards?
The Michelangelo Wine Awards is an international wine competition held annually in South Africa. It is named after the famous Italian artist Michelangelo, who is renowned for his masterpieces. Just like Michelangelo's art, the wines awarded at this competition are considered works of art in their own right. The Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards was established in 1997 to offer South African producers the opportunity of having their wines adjudicated locally by a highly experienced and respected panel of professionals from around the globe.
How does the competition work?
Winemakers from all over the world submit their wines to be judged by a panel of experts. The judges, consisting of experienced sommeliers, wine critics, and industry professionals, evaluate each wine based on its aroma, taste, appearance, and overall quality. The wines are blind tasted, meaning that the judges do not know the brand or origin of the wine during the evaluation process.
Why are the Michelangelo Wine Awards important?
